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:
Delete your ps4 phone apps from your cell phone. I did and it fixed it.@mont348
I’ve tried all of those and none of them worked.@mont348
Nothing works tried doing everything that people said will work but doesn't work for me tryed logging out tryed signing out of psn nothing works for me
Yeah I did all the "Solutions" you so uncaringly threw out and they're all ***** and don't work idk fix your crap before everyone throws out the ps4 and goes to Xbox/pc because they have less ***** problems than this
Lucky you are online I can't get out of offline mode@CrotchShotD
None of these solutions worked. I’m still offline and now I can’t even access any of my games because of this!@mont348
I don’t know if this works for everyone but if you go to test your internet connection it may fix your online status bug. It worked for me so it may work for you. Also try restarting your PS4 and then testing your internet connection if just testing your internet connection doesn’t work.
PlayStation is fricken awful I do the steps over and over and nothing changes I am so angry and I am also considering buying a Xbox over this because of how much crap happens on this stupid ps4
I cant see myself online not can my friends see me online and I am in fact signed in online. Dont even the the blue light beside my profile.
Hi I have tried all of these they do not work for me is there anything else I can do.
Still seems to be a problem. Any devs still working on this??
Tried all "solutions" multiple times.. alas, no Voila result!
I found the mother f***in me solution and I just tested this theory as of 930pm on 7/23/18 go back and see if you’re logged in on another system or your older system and completely removing your current account off of the older playingstation 3 system or remove your account off of these next PlayStation system
I tried all the Professional work around fixes and this doesnt fix my problem, When i use the Quick menu to set online, the option is grayed out. When i try to set my status on the XMB profile, it is grayed out as well.
Tried all of the above and none work. In fact it's worse now. "Select online status" button is now greyed out and cannot be used at all. What a joke. This is really frustrating.
Have you tried signing out via account management?
Is there a possibility someone could have access to your account and they are currently signed in on another system?@Jaytal6
I unplugged the system and about to turn it back on again. See if that helps.@mont348
Changed password, reset to default settings. Still won't work.@mont348
