Had the logic board replaced in my iMac and its doing some odd things now. First it wouldn't let me play songs I had downloaded saying that I wasn't signed into Apple Music when I was. Found a fix online that had me remove a cache folder in iTunes. Now I can't download any songs. They show up in my library, but as soon as I click the cloud icon, I just get the circle. Its pausing the download and refuses to resume no matter what I do. Any ideas?

Far from here
Hi,

first, check that your iMac has a serial number : /About this Mac

Do you see a serial number like D04PVBMWG6TH, or something else like : "Serial #", or "no serial number available", etc.. ?

(after a logic board replacement, the new LB has to be flashed with the serial number of the Mac, otherwise services like iMessages, FaceTime, App Store do not work)

Thanks. Yes, I have a full on serial number. iMessages was not working either until I signed into it. Im signed into Apple Music too, songs show up in my library when I add them, I just can't download them. Is this an iCloud issue maybe?

I don't know.

Just checked and it does work for me.

May be try to sign out / sign in in iTunes ?
Thanks, works on my phone too. Its an issue with iTunes on my computer and I have zero idea whats causing it. Frustrating
