Some PS4 Owners Are Reporting Problems With The 2.0 Patch

Rather predictably the 2.0 patch for PlayStation 4 seems to have caused one or two problems, specifically the console will not turn on after closing down in to rest mode.

“I can’t turn my PS4 on after putting it in rest mode. Booooo,” posted taoofjord on NeoGaf. “I hit the PS button on the controller, controller turned on, not the system. Power button on the system is not responding. I get a beep when I try to eject the disc but no eject. Light on the top of PS4 is doing the blinky yellow thing,” added laughingmood.

PlayStation community manager Chris Owen has suggested rebuilding the PS4 database which seems to have worked for some people.

To add to the problems some PS4 owners say they cannot connect to the PSN after the patch. “Since the update, I cant connect to PSN. Also, music player does not work,” said one user on the PlayStation blog. “Updated an hour ago – still can’t sign into playstation network!! No game play for me :( very disappointing,” complained another.

TSA Staff member Adam has confirmed the error, “My PSN’s fudged, doesn’t automatically connect on booting,” he said.

The problem may in part be caused by the oh-so-predictable fact that the PSN has thrown a wonk. “Certain aspects of PSN are experiencing heavy traffic and errors, engineers looking into this,” tweeted Chris Owen.

There are also a small number of reports that the YouTube sign-in is “borked.”

It should be noted that the vast majority of PS4 owners seem to be updating to 2.0 without any problems.

  1. Update went fine for me. It did a database rebuild automatically.

  2. I cannot see any themes anywhere, apparently there was to be a Cod and Destiny theme free?

    • Me neither, I had a quick look around the store, no luck! Its very annoying how the same content on the store across all the consoles, and the browser version, are presented so differently! The colour options are there in settings though, I guess you’ve found that :)

      • Yep though I only changed it to the darker blue lol.

        Just want something that is not so cold.

      • Personally I don’t think I see enough “lol”s on this site. The very thought that someone is made to laugh at the option to change their screen colour from a mid-blue to a dark blue makes me laugh. There’s simply not enough LOLing around these parts.

      • Lol

    • I just wanted Black. Grey will have to do.
      I think you can grab the themes early if you have a Jap/US account, otherwise they wil probably arrive with the EU store update tomorrow.

    • There is only 3 themes available at the mo and you have to go to the web based store to find them,i just went to store through app search theme tick ps4 and there they are nothing amazing but they are free anyway.

    • Go to your Settings and scroll to Themes, there is a button to go directly to the Playstation Store theme page.

  3. *keeps checking to see if Blighty has commented yet*

    • Ha, me too! I couldn’t work out if this article would give him an erection or a mangina.

      • He’s probably too busy playing online. Obviously there is no problem with his PSN. Unlike Live which has probably gone down 4 or 5 times today.

      • Lol

      • Doh! That lol was meant for amphlett!

      • Ha ha, what a thought!

  4. Problem with the update here too. Can’t connect to PSN or access the store. Only bought my PS4 yesterday too. Getting error code NW-31194-8.

  5. I’ve spent the last half hour surfing through Amazon whilst repeatedly tapping X to try an log back in to the PS Network. This is not good.

    • Of course I’ve also been rummaging through the pages of my favourite gaming site,

      • An hour to log on to the PS Network. I’m finally on! Yay! now to play Driveclub PS+ Edition…

  6. Updated fine for me, but now won’t connect to the network. That rules out destiny for this evening.

  7. Hmm, updated fine, even Driveclub connected to my club, I thought I’d get myself the youtube app.


    PSN is down for maintenance.


    Opens e-mail, “Your opinion of the PlayStation Plus service” survey lands. Oh goodie.

    Even the web based store is not working.

    The only good thing is that under the system setting on the PS4, there’s an option to ‘Reduce items on home screen’ or some such, untick it and all the games pop back. Instead of going into the library.

  8. I am one of the ones! After I put my PS4 into Stand-By mode the system will not turn back on. If anyone knows how to fix this let me know! Thanks

    • I have heard a hard reboot has gotten some back on unplug your power cord from the wall wait 30 seconds and plug it back in and try to start the console not sure if it will work but it has for a few let us know if it worked for you please.

      • Yes this worked! Thanks a ton

      • You are very welcome nathannevilhoward !

        looks like the fixed things I am back on and playing
        Destiny !!!

  9. Signed out of psn and back in. The “cannot connect to server” error changed to “service undergoing maintenance” lol nice euphemism for something went wrong.

  10. Ok restoring licenses for digital content now works. So I can at least do single player now ;-P
