PS4 error codes and suggested fixes listed

Definitions and possible work-arounds explained

An official list of PlayStation 4 error codes has been posted online, along with suggested ways of overcoming them.

While by no means comprehensive, Sony published the short list as a reference for the most "common errors" experienced on the new console.


Here's the full list:

CE-33179-3: Application is not found. Retry after the installation is completed. Installation of Add-Ons fails until the installation of application installation is complete.

CE-33991-5: Get the status of the non HTTP_GET_200 in Internet connection. Retry Internet Connection test.

CE-34788-0: This update file cannot be used. Connect a USB storage device that contains an update file for reinstallation for version 1.50 or later. Delete the Update file from the USB storage device, and replace it with the update for reinstallation found from this page.

CE-34878-0: Application has crashed. Restart the application in the content area.

NW-31484-0: DNS server not specified. Restart the PS4 system.

NW-31367-0: Could not open wireless device. Restart the PS4 system.

This comes after Sony offered guidance for those who have encountered the PS4's 'blinking blue light' error state, which the firm said points to a number of possible faults including TV compatibility, issues with the PS4 power supply, a fault with the console's hard drive or 'other PS4 hardware'.

Fixes include upgrading the TV's firmware, disconnecting the PS4 power cord from the electrical outlet following a hard shutdown, and identifying any problems with the ports and cords including damage or wear.

PS4 launches in Europe and Australia on November 29.
