Hey all, since the last update my PS4 has had me stuck in appear Offline mode. Even though I never selected to appear offline. Nothing I do in my setting or profile can change it. I'm definitely coonected to the Internet and can stream Netflix and download stuff from the PS Store. It didn't bother me at first, but now it's stopping me play DS3 online. Is anyone else having these problems, and has anyone found a fix to this issue?
Solved! Go to solution

"Our engineers have advised that a permanent fix has now been applied but you would need to restart your consoles for the fix to work.
You should no longer need to apply the workarounds suggested below but please do let us know how you get on."
Some options that should get this working for everybody:
[Please note that this needs to be done on PC and not on a mobile device/console]
Otherwise try this:
1. Log out via quick menu or the power options far right of XMB.
2. Log back in with the appear online option.
3. Head to your user profile and change online status to appear offline.
4. Once this is done initially appear offline/online should toggle normally.
If that doesn't work then try this:
Do you use a PSVita regularly?If so have a read of page 7 of the 3.50 firmware topic.

I have the same problem. The button is just grey and doesn't work anymore. I am still connected to the PSN but can not play any games online anymore. Please help!@dylancarr8
Naw its sn issue with them i spent over an hour on the phone with them this morning. And the monkeys they are using for engineers couldnt even figure out how to open a banana. I knew more about the problem than they did. The monkey flipped the wrong switch.
I hope this will be fixed soon. I tried everything including restoring the default settings and rebuilding the database via safe mode several times, but nothing worked. There was actually a very funny glitch that happened to me: I tried to create a party which failed. After that I disconnected from my wifi and restored the default settings via safe mode. About a half an hour later I randomly checked my account when I was back online, and there was a party online somehow hosted by me. The info about said that it was online for about a half an hour, even though I wasn't online since then and not even logged in with my account. When I tried to join it I got an error.@Bradmeiser
I have the same issue i called support trying to fix it they be better off trying to find titts in a strip club but im sure they would screw that up to@Asharox
I’m having that same problem. My friends can’t invite me to anything and if they can my PS4 never detects it however my phone does. Joining a party has been the worst struggle lately. I’m not sure what’ll work since I’ve tried everything. It’s been like this since yesterday morning.
