Does anyone know how to solve this? I've done all the usual troubleshooting steps. (Safemode, attempt from USB, etc)
Thanks in advance.
Basically, you are screwed. This is an attempt by Sony to force you to send in your PlayStation for repair if there is hardware malfunctioning, even if it wouldn't normally be an issue.
No form of installation will work for this error code, not even safe mode usb or a complete reinstallation. And no, no one is going to help you. Sorry.
Here's hoping mine is still under warranty. Also, is it possible a reformat will fix it?
Nope. Initializing will throw the same error code, and opening the PS4 and removing the harddrive will trigger the "tamper protection" in the hardware scan.@ssfbob
So if I already know that either my blu-ray drive makes noise or my fan is cracked and occasionally makes the noise (just replaced hdd to higher rpm and capacity and replaced thermal paste AND THEN played over 100+ hours so I know i did nothing wrong to that part of the ps4) then this new update is throwing an error BECAUSE OF A HARDWARE CHECK that is now in the updates. CAN U SAY "CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT"@JonTheJoo
I have been thinking class action for some time now about this. I doubt anyone would have the balls to start it though.@cmorton73
You know i did the same like 2 weeks ago i had the red light and i out the thermal paste and played since then and now i have the damn error...i dont think i left something wrong when i put the ps4 back so i dont know what to think
First thing to do is, on your PS4;
(1) go to Notifications then
(2) press options and select Downloads
(3) Delete the system software update.
Ok, now that's gone, make sure you've not got any apps running, then;
(4) go to Settings/ system software update and try
(5) "update using internet"
This doesn't work with error code SU-42118-6.@FxRiDeR4
This worked for me , please try these steps 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽@FxRiDeR4
I’m gonna try it. Did your PS4 randomly stop reading disks as well?@ekowart07
I can not get back on to the ps home screen its just stuck on the error screen@FxRiDeR4
mine stopped accepting disks alltogether@LilTay-5
I have exactly the same issue. Was playing a game as normal, no mods, threw an error code and stopped reading or accepting discs entirely. I tried using the manual control screw to insert and eject discs to no avail.
Ive since bought my games digitally as an expensive workaround (I'm addicted to fallout) and downloaded them at a friend's house, along with this update. I came home tonight, set everything up and couldn't open fallout.
I figured it had something to do with this update, so installed it, restarted the system, and now I'm receiving this error code.
Ive no clue what to do.@HAZZY-007
Mine been did that so i started buying an downloading from the store an now this 6.0 update hit an my ***** is fuxked .....i rlly wana sue they ass lowkey cuz i was playin everything just fine yesterday an now im *****.....somebody owe me another ps4 fr@LilTay-5
I got the same error... Any help would be appreciated!!!
Have u guys been on the beta firmware or normal one before?
I am still in the beta and i get an error when updating, but my PS4 is luckily still not bricked. I just cant log into PSN because it requires an update
