Playstation Error Codes

PS5 7 4


Error codes are a common occurrence in the world of gaming, and even PlayStation users are not immune. While many errors can be solved by simply restarting your console, there are times when you may need to look up specific error codes to diagnose the problem properly. In this article, we will dive into some common PlayStation error codes you might experience while playing games or using other features on your console.

Error WS-37338-4

You may have encountered the error code WS-37338-4 when trying to play a game or use an app on your Playstation 4. This can be frustrating, but there are several ways to resolve this problem.

If you are having trouble playing the game with your PS4, the first thing to check is whether the disc has scratches or smudges. If so, try cleaning it off with a soft cloth and see if that helps. You will also want to ensure that all your cables between your console and television are connected correctly and any components such as speakers or headphones, if applicable.

If none of these steps works for you, please try calling our customer service number at 1-800-345-7669, so they can help resolve this issue quickly!

Error CE-34878-0

It occurs when you try using the DUALSHOCK 4 controller on your PC.

  • This error can be fixed by manually installing the latest drivers for your DUALSHOCK 4 controller through Windows Update or Sony’s official website.
  • If you can’t install the drivers, try connecting your DUALSHOCK 4 controller directly to a USB port on your computer and then restarting it.

Error CE-30005-8

You may encounter the error code CE-30005-8 while using PlayStation Network. This is a general error code and can be caused by many different issues.

  • Contact PlayStation Support: If you have this error when playing games or using applications, try restarting the console and check for updates. If this doesn’t resolve the issue, contact PlayStation support for additional assistance.
  • Send your system in for repair: If you continue to experience problems with your PS4 after contacting us, send us your system so we can run tests on it and determine if there’s an issue with your unit itself.

Suppose other errors aren’t related to gaming or content downloads (i.e., it’s also happening with Blu-ray discs). In that case, we recommend checking out this article from Sony about how to fix issues with slow systems in general.”

Error CE-32889-0

Error CE-32889-0 is a general error code that several different issues can cause. It’s not specific to any one game, and it’s not even limited to PlayStation Network errors—it can also occur when playing a disk.

Error CE-32889-0 will often appear after an update or download, so if you’ve recently updated your PS4 or installed a new game and see this error code, try waiting 24 hours before restarting your system to see if it fixes itself. You may also need new firmware for your PS4: check out our guide on updating the firmware here!

Error SU-30696-4

If you see the error code SU-30696-4 when trying to start a game on your PlayStation, this is likely due to an issue with the game file itself. If this is the case, you can take a few steps to correct the problem:

  1. Ensure your router or modem is turned on and connected to a working power source.
  2. Turn off your internet connections for 30 seconds before turning them back on again.
  3. If neither of these solutions works for you, try re-installing the game from scratch by returning it to its original packaging and downloading it from PlayStation Network (PSN).

Error NP-37667-9

Error NP-37667-9 is a common error code for PlayStation 3 systems. This error occurs when your PS3 has uninstalled games without removing their files from the system’s memory or when there are corrupted files on your hard drive.

To fix this issue:

  • Make sure you’ve installed all of the games on your PS3 so there aren’t any missing discs that need to be inserted. If you haven’t installed all of the necessary discs and they’re no longer available to borrow (or buy), contact customer support at 1-(800)-345-7669 during business hours Monday through Friday, 8:00 am-10:00 pm Eastern Time, 4:00 am-6:00 pm Pacific Time, 7:00 am-8:00 pm Central European Time, and 2:00 am -5:59 am GMT+1

Error NP-31730-4


This error code means that your Playstation Network account cannot be accessed. 

  • Your Playstation Network (PSN) account is banned, suspended, or locked.
  • You have changed your password but forgot to update it on your PS4 system.

These error codes are hard to understand.

Error codes can be difficult to understand because they are not easy to understand or are confusing and written poorly. Specifically, the PlayStation error codes are hard to understand because they are poorly written. This means that errors do not clearly state what caused them or how you can fix them, which makes it hard for users to know what’s going on with their system.


As you can see, the error codes on a Playstation are not that difficult to understand. However, they require you to read them carefully and act accordingly. The first thing that most people should do is power off their console completely and then try rebooting it again. If there’s still no change after doing this several times over an hour or so (or longer), then it might be time to take advantage of some online support options like calling Sony customer service at 800-345-7669.
