It is plausible that you might need internet access, or your internet could be faster. In that case, I recommend trying to update your PS4’s system software using a USB drive. To do so:

  1. Download the update file: Go to the PlayStation website and download the latest update file for your PS4. Make sure to download the correct file for your specific model PS4.
  2. Format a USB drive: Format a USB drive as FAT32 or exFAT and create a folder named “PS4”. Inside that folder, create another folder named “UPDATE.”

  4. Turn off your PS4: Hold the power button until the system beeps twice, indicating that the PS4 has been turned off.
  5. Connect the USB drive to your PS4: Insert the USB drive into one of the PS4’s USB ports.
  6. Start your PS4 in Safe Mode: Press and hold the power button; you’ll hear a beep, and the PS4 will enter Safe Mode.
  7. Select “Update System Software” > “Update using a USB Storage Device.”
  8. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation process.
  9. Restart the PS4: After completing the installation, your PS4 will prompt you to restart the console.
  10. After restarting, your PS4’s system software should be updated to the latest version.

Please note that updating your PS4 using a USB drive will erase all data from the hard drive, including games, DLCs, and saved data, so it’s essential to back up your important data before proceeding.

3) Factory Reset PS4

According to my experience, restoring your PS4 to its default settings can fix this issue. But, this method will erase all data from the hard drive, including games, DLCs, and saved data, so it’s essential to back up your important data before proceeding. You can back up your data to an external drive or the cloud using the PS+ subscription.

4) Booting In Safe Mode

If you’ve reached here and are still running into the error, my testing shows that you are also suffering from your settings malfunctioning. Booting in Safe Mode can help with that.

5) Rebuilding Database

I found that rebuilding the PS4 database also fixed many PS4-related errors. To rebuild the database on your PS4, you must start the console in safe mode.

What To Do If None Of The Fixes Work?

If none of the fixes work, I’d suggest that you try and contact PS Support. There are a few ways to contact PlayStation support for your PS4:

  1. Contact PlayStation Support through their website: Go to the PlayStation website and look for a link to “Support” or “Contact Us.” This will provide you options for contacting PlayStation support through email, phone, or live chat.
