Key Takeaways

  • This error is associated with difficulties with accessing or downloading content.
  • This error can occur due to network or server connection problems.
  • Checking your account status and verifying network connectivity are common fixes for this error.

Before you proceed with the fixes, I recommend you try:

  1. Retrying the download.
  2. Restarting PlayStation.
  3. Fixing your connection.
  4. Updating the OS.

1. Free Up Space

One 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 also have screenshots or screen recordings of games, which might take a lot of space.

Follow the following steps to delete all unusable captures:

  1. Access your Capture Gallery.

2. 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.

If the servers are down, waiting for them to be back up should fix the issue.

3. 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:

  1. On your PS4, go to Settings > Network > View Connection Status.
      Network menu, Click on “View Connection Status” (image by Emopulse)
  2. Access your router settings.
  3. Open a web browser and enter your router’s IP address into the address bar (usually something like
  4. Log in with your router’s username and password. Check your router’s manual for the default credentials if you haven’t changed these.

        1. Look for a Port Forwarding or Port Triggering section in your router settings.

        2. 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.

            Fill out according to the points below (Image by Emopulse).

        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.

        The Verdict

        Like what you may assume from a download error, your storage issue plays a huge role in its occurrence. I’ve seen cases where the PSN network disconnecting you during a download corrupted the data, but unlike more extreme cases, reinstalling the afflicted games could fix the issue.

        Plenty of users could fix it by just retrying the download or restarting the console, but a large majority of them had to resort to more specific methods. The method that seemed to work the best for me was formatting the router settings.

        Not many people know how to fix their router’s settings, but I’ve found it to be a fix you’ll have to learn sooner rather than later with how many of these pesky network errors have been popping up later.
