Reinstalling The PS4 System Software

I addressed this issue by reinstalling the PS4 system software. To reinstall the PS4 system software, you will need a USB storage device with at least 400 MB of free space. Follow these steps to reinstall the system software:

  1. Install the latest version of the PS4 system software from the official PlayStation website on your PC.
  2. Link the USB drive to your PC and create a folder named PS4.
  3. Inside the PS4 folder, create another folder named UPDATE.
  4. Copy and paste the installed PS4 system software file to the UPDATE folder.
  5. Rename the system software file to PS4UPDATE.PUP.
  6. Disconnect the USB storage device from your computer and connect it to your PS4.
  7. Turn off the PS4 and hold the power button until you hear two beeps (about 7 seconds) to start the PS4 in safe mode.
  8. Connect a DualShock 4 controller to the console using a USB cable.
  9. Select Update System Software from the safe mode options and follow the on-screen instructions to reinstall the software.

Check Corrupt Game Data

My team members believe a corrupted game data file can cause this PS4 error. So, it would be best to check for corrupt game data. Follow the below-mentioned steps to do so:

  1. Go to Settings > Application Saved Data Management.

  2. Select Saved Data in System Storage.
  3. See if any files have a yellow triangle icon indicating corrupt data.
  4. Delete the corrupt game data and try restarting the console to see if it usually works.

Factory Reset Your PS4

If none of the solutions works, I suggest factory resetting the console, as it has resolved many PS4-related errors for me. But, the first and most crucial step is to back up all critical data before factory resetting. It would remove everything on the console, including all saved data, user accounts, and settings from your PS4 and return it to its original state.

Final Verdict

Always try to keep your console and app updated because it is essential to eliminate different PS4 errors. The official PlayStation website says that if you encounter this error, the issue may be with the application version. In this case, check for updates. If updates are available, follow the on-screen instructions to update it.

If none of the solutions work, it might be a hardware issue, and you should contact PlayStation Support for further assistance.
