Pandora decided to stop working today. It finally said it needed to be “reauthorized”. I hit the button and brought me to a page that asks for an activation code. But I don’t have an activation code… when I hit “forgot code” or “where to find code”, I get this...
I forgot my code
If you have forgotten your code, you can retrieve it from the product you are trying to set up. Simply select the Pandora option on your product, and it will give you a code to use on this page.
But no matter where I look on the Sonos app, I don’t see an activation code. When I hit the authorize button it pulls me through a screen or two within the app but no code found there.
I also tried to remove the service and re add. And have the same issue… I know this was much easier when I did it forever ago...

ahh. Bruce!! - - thanks for posting the link.. been trying to figure this out for a while and found this thread. thx you all! hope to get back up and running soon… need that activation code to get back to my routine.
Seems Sonos has an outage, as for code it would have been authorized once you logged into Pandora, but Sonos isn’t responding.
Just started happening on my system as well. Saw that someone else asked about this 4 months ago and the thread is now closed to comments. Does that mean there is a solution? https://en.community.sonos.com/music-services-and-sources-228994/pandora-asks-for-activation-code-6832756
This is so frustrating. Same here. No activation code to be found on my app or my Mac. After many failed attempts, I removed my pandora account and when I went to add it again, it still was prompting me to activate the account with no activation code.
I’ve LOVED my sonos system for 6 years now. And ever since they announced they were phasing out the technology and then they took it back after negative feedback… I’ve been having problems with my system.
Wait until Pandora fixes the issue. Once the issue is fixed by them, you’ll be able to use Pandora as normal.
I’m unable to play Pandora from my Sonos trying using either my iPhone or computer.
Keeps asking for reauthorization, but neither device displays an authcode I can input. I can log in and play Pandora fine other places including the devices I use to control Sonos.
Same here. It was working for about an hour and a half, then stopped again. Now it’s asking for reauthorization same as yours. No authorization code is available for me either. Frustrating.
