hello i just updated to the new system software and i can't install it because of this error code.
did anybody get this error code too?
Solved! Go to solution
Remove System Software Update job from Notifications > Downloads first. Then try below.
Otherwise if you’re still receiving this error after updating your PS4 then please contact PlayStation Support for further help.
This is a VERY small percentage of consoles that have a broken Blu Ray drive@NJD1974
yeah but been online and loads of websites with "common faults", hdmi port is "delicate as spider web", light of death, poor soldering because no lead in solder any more. Is very delicate machine. Will be scared of moving it, unplugging it. Etc, etc. Just typed in "ps4 pro common faults" and websites came up by people who fix them. Will get one but if I have any problems at all, I'll take it back to Argos!
They are not going to fix the error through software. You have to send your console in. read the thread from page 140 or so on. You'll know what to do. Call Sony, let them know you want a free fix, let them know you use only digital gaming, let them know this was not your doing, let them know that you don't have warranty stickers because you tried to fix their error. There will be no fix via software. Look at the front of this thread. The guy tells you to call sony support to send your console in. Just be sure to tell them this wasn't your doing and that you have E-801809A8, or they will charge you to fix your unit.
Bit the bullet and bought the pro. As am not online used the usb to update software version. Blu ray still wont work, says still needs to be connected to internet to work, so not happy about that. GT sport is amazing, wish they did offline version. Machine could be better looking, looks like a paving slab! Want vertical stand now. Happy with machine so far and crazy the amount of hours you can clock up without thinking. Anyone know of any good driving games like gt, not Arcady?
hey can someone help me with this ? I jus updated my game and know I can't play it because this error. Code is the only thing popping up is there a way that I can get rid of the update so I can play my game again ? Or for the reinstallation code or.how to.reinstall it ?
Hi, What do we do when PlayStation support is hiding behind the fact that the warranty expires after 2 years. Is this really the companies policy to provide an update that breaks the console and then say sorry it is not covered by warranty?
Looking forward to hear back from you.
Did and your ***** service canceled the call before we got it fixed. ***** Sony. Lazy dumb asses can't even fix their own *****.@LordRoss
I'm really hoping that actually works because I've gone down every checklist that doesn't involve opening the device.@LordRoss
It required me having to wipe my system but they did compensate me somewhat for losing so much data.
This was after over a month of deliberating on whether or not I was willing to do so since none of the other methods were working.
Been having the same issue today, system error and controllers not working; frozen at error screen. My solution- I took out my battery supply and optical drive, unplugged all wires from both, (I did not replace optical drive,simply took it out) I put optical drive and all wires plugged back in, plugged in battery supply and re-assembled, once back together and plugged back into the wall outlet turned on my ps4 with touch sensor (note my touch sensor hasn’t worked in months) while taking apart and re-assembling I fixed my touch sensor issue as well. ( have no idea what I did for that to work again) once my ps4 was turned back on system update was downloading and updating just fine. No more error, update is now downloaded and my ps4 is working just fine once again,, hope this helps some of you out there!
This is not acceptable. This issue still exists with 5.05 and has been going on for months. It really doesn't feel like anyone is listening.@LordRoss
Support does nothing to help. This problem still exists with 5.05. Hello? Anyone listening?@LordRoss
Since You have this system software update5.05 I can install the update! It gives me this error (E-801809A8).
It has been 2 days I am not able to use my play station! I have been on the phone with your support for more than 2 hours. Still they cant figure out. The problem! ASking me to call my internet service provider for some ports!
I have the same error code for update 5.05 and I tried going to safe mode and doing all that. The ps rep told me I had to like do this option that deleted everything off my ps4 and I did it but its still not working
This is happening with me too my ps4 friend list is not loading up but when I run "test my connection" everything is perfect, what should I do
Nothing to do with this thread. See https://status.playstation.com/
Had this issue for over a week, my PlayStation is now a $400 piece of ***** that they want to charge me to fix. I cannot update, it gives me the same error code. I cannot sign in or use it at all. PlayStation will be hearing from me tommorow, now seeing this is no error of mine I won't be paying to to use the thing I paid for 9 months ago. Its literally a paper weight now. No response from Sony either.
Yeah, contact the 3rd party staff that is completel useless. Seriously Sony? Hire out your dirty work? Lol. It's seriously a bunch of people who have a punch list in front of them, and when you call, they start at #1 and go down the list. The steps are the same every tme we call. If you manage to make it to the end of the list without the" call getting dropped " (yeah im on a land line dude) then I SWEAR TO GOD, they will hang up on you!! LMAO! What? That is so embarrassig for me, having been a Sony and PlayStation fan for ... 20 years, give or take. The disgusting amount of money you have made off of us, and this is the best you can provide? I'm done... update 5.5 or 5.05 whatever SMD!
