Free Up Space
Monitor PSN Status
Adjust Firewall Settings
1. Fix Network
I ask you to ensure a stable internet connection with adequate bandwidth. When I faced the error, it was an internet issue. An ethernet cable connecting directly to the router can help troubleshoot Wi-Fi problems. There may be traffic on your Wi-Fi, which may cause this issue. So, using an Ethernet cable to check the connection is essential.
2. Restart PS4
This method can help to solve many kinds of errors in the PS4. Restarting PlayStation can refresh network connections and address minor connectivity glitches, and it’s helped many users treat the error.
Another fix I tried was to free up storage. To do this, delete unneeded games or data to make space for new downloads or updates. You may have screenshots or screen recordings of games, which might take a lot of space.
To delete these files, click on the capture gallery, select the files and delete them. Follow the following steps to delete all unusable data:
Go to the main menu of the PlayStation.
Now, find the capture gallery in there.
Click on the library and select “Applications.”
Click on the capture gallery and open it
4. Once you are in the capture gallery, you can select the data by clicking on a specific game or see all of the data
5. Now, here, we can select the files which we want to delete
6. At the bottom right, we can see the delete option. After selecting, press delete to clear all the unusable data.
4. Monitor PSN Status
Check the official PlayStation Network status page for ongoing server problems that might be causing the error. I have faced many errors that required nothing except knowledge of the servers and a patient mind, and this can be one such error.
5. Adjust Firewall Settings
Another problem that caused this error for me was the firewall settings. I fixed it by temporarily turning off some overly strict settings.
Here are the steps:
Find your PS4’s IP address.
On your PS4, go to “Settings”> “Network”> “View Connection Status.”
Note down the IP address.
Access your router settings.
Open a web browser and enter your router’s IP address into the address bar (usually something like 192.168.1.1).
Log in with your router’s username and password. Check your router’s manual for the default credentials if you haven’t changed these.
Look for a “Port Forwarding” or “Port Triggering” section in your router settings.
Add a new port forwarding rule for the PS4 with the following details: Service Name: PSN (or any name you prefer) Internal IP Address: Enter the PS4’s IP address you noted earlier.
Save the settings and restart your router if necessary.
On your PS4, go to “Settings”> “Network”> “Test Internet Connection” to check if the issue is resolved.
These steps should help you adjust your firewall settings to resolve the error on your PS4. Ensure to follow your router’s specific interface and terminology, as it may vary between router models.
