Error code CE-34878-0

[ Edited ]
2,613 Replies 277,675 Views edited 4 weeks ago

I've been getting this on NBA 2K14 since this evening. 

The game is completely unplayable. I know it's happened with other games for people and it happened to me on Battlefield yesterday but seems to be working okay today.

Still, if games are going to become unplayable, what is the point of owning a games console?

 




Latest update from Online Support 

 


 

The error ce-34878-0 means an application has crashed so you will see it from time to time. 

If you are are getting this error regularly, to the point where its making games unplayable then this indicates its not a normal crash and something is wrong. 

 

If this is the case please follow the below troubleshooting steps:

 

If you are experiencing this ce-34878-0 error code, please close the application and then install the latest system software and game patch.

 

You can also try deleting and reinstalling the game or application that's affected. 


If the error occurs again, initialise the PS4 system after back-up of the save data and please also submit any crash reports after re-booting your console when the error occurs.

 

If the troubleshooting does not prevent the frequent crashing then your console is likely in need of service. If this is the case please click here to run through some troubleshooting and arrange for a replacement console if required.

I haven't had the error for two days now. Got it twice within a few hours monday night & nothing since.

Definitely looking more like PSN related to me.

Interested to know if anyone has had this error with a PS4 which was/is never connected to PSN?

Just a thought. To those who experienced this error, could you try to disable the network, and see if the error pops up again?

Got this error on day 1 playing b4 at the end of the first level, figured hey its day 1 ill play something else, theyll figure it out. well 2 months later I go back to b4 (have damn near 100% ac4 and did 100% lego marvel and dabbled in kz w/o any hint of the error code) and i cant even start the game. If i have to listen to that damn song again i swear to jesus. I finally gave up on b4 and put in need for speed...make it just far enough to select cop/racer for the tutorial stuff and the code pops up again. Im bought ready to just get rid of this thing and go back to the damn xbox.

think thats just to highlight a potential workaround for now, @LordRoss' post is kinda there to show that Sony are aware theres a problem :).

 

as other have said, the code looks very much like just a common error code that might cover lots of different things, so might not have one solution.

 

looking back through my error history, seems i got it on day 1 after updating the console and doing nothing else xD, but didnt pop up again until this week.

Ya its got to be something wrong with video card because my bf4 played today only after deleting everything on my system just put bf4 only in and downloaded no other games. But once the game started I got a lot of glitches in the load up screen and error came up after game got started but when I turned down the resolution to 480 I got to play til I shot out the window and long behold there goes the error code again. My system is also getting hotter then my brother's after only a short period of game ply (1hr or less).

But the clutching lead me to believe it could the video card and not only that but as soon as the game graphics really came to use the error code came back and I also finally got the code saying my saved data been corrupted but that was on the games main menu screen.

This needs to be fixed one of the reasons I bought the ps4 is to play with family and friends on games I bought not to only watch there progress in bf4.

Hi guys,  

The error code ce-34878-0 indicates an application crash. We are still investigating the reasons behind the frequency and inconsistency in occurrences for some users.

In the mean time please follow the suggestions posted by LordRoss which I have detailed below.

If you are experiencing this ce-34878-0 error code, please close the application and then install the latest system software and game patch.

If the error occurs again, initialise the PS4 system after back-up of the save data and please also submit any crash reports after re-booting your console when the error occurs.

 

We will be monitoring this thread and any crash reports you send. 

 

Thanks,

I had a tweet from you today Superfastzombie about this code problem.

My case is its only happened about 10 times in a month, the crash and code is just random i have no idea where it will happen (its happens on BF4 either playing games or looking at battlelog and its happened whilst playing Fifa doing the skills mode, but i have gone back to those situations to try and get the error code to see if that was the cause, but i do it again and nothing happens.. NO error code)

 This just leaves me as a parnoid wreak with my PS4 console, shell i or shell i not risk getting a crash, or just leave the console turned off waiting for a update from Sony about the situation.

I think my case has the problem lightly compaired to others on here so i dredd what they are going through. Its not nice knowing that it could be £380 down the drain.. and it will be soon cause the longer it takes Sony to figure out why this problem is happening the less time i have to return console to shop for being faulty.. Which leads me to my next question...

 

 Is my console faulty or a bug problem that can be patched out??

 

i have 5 workmates with ps4's me and another guy has had this code, and the other 3 are fine and we all play the same games inc BF4. which to me makes me think it could be a console problem?

Yes bro take it back to the store you bought it. I went mine back as DOA, and i am waiting for a new ps4 in a couple of days. You paid your money demand a new one. I also bought for about 49 euros an extra 4 year guarantee.

This is not a working solution. If you back up a corrupted save data, reinstall the game and download that corrupted save, the game won't load and will crash.

Please refer to my solution that is working 100% as a temporary measure to avoid losing all your progress until Sony finds a solution.

I have been reporting the problem each time it comes up, i have also checked my software and it saying that it is up to date.

 

I hope we will be receiving re embersment for the inconvenience this is causing s we pay to use the functions!!

 

I do hope this issue is resolved soon as i have to say i turned down the xbox one for the ps4 and so far i am dissappointed!

Superfastzombie thanks for the update but where does that leave us? I have tried all the suggestions by your customer service team with no positive results, subsequently I have a ps4 that I can't really use. £350 is a lot of money for a pretty unattractive ornament.

So if it is now clear that CE-34878-0 simply means 'application crashed' (for unknown reason) there is no chance for a quick, universal fix as there are probably dozens different reasons why this is happening. I'd encourage all users who experience the error to submit the report with as much descripction as possible, that would give Sony a chance to explore all possibilites (as long as they read them)

 

How many times in recent weeks DICE have released patches that were suppposed to prevent BF4 from crashing, and what - the game is still unreliable. I can't see this being sorted out quickly then

I have returned my unplayable PS4 due to error code ce-34878-0 and received a full refund from Game. Then spoke to psn regarding a refund due to the fact that I no longer own a PS console. Their reply was there is nothing wrong with your psn account tough. After many years of Sony loyalty I am very disappointed and have decided to never use Sony products again.

I will give it a few more days. Then I will get rid of it and buy an xbox. This is dumb. This is the 4th console so they should be experienced with these type of errors. I have over $500 worth of stuff just sitting collecting dust.
