How to fix common download errors and issues




Sometimes, you may encounter some errors or issues when downloading games from PlayStation Store. Here are some common ones and how to fix them:


  • CE-36244-9: This error means that the download has been corrupted. To fix it, delete the download and try again. If that doesn't work, rebuild the database of your PS4 by following these steps: Turn off your PS4, then press and hold the power button until you hear two beeps. Connect your controller with a USB cable and press the PS button. Select Rebuild Database from the Safe Mode menu and wait for the process to finish.



  • NP-39225-1: This error means that there is a network problem. To fix it, check your internet connection and make sure it is stable and fast. You can also try changing your DNS settings to Google's public DNS by following these steps: On your PS4 console, go to Settings > Network > Set Up Internet Connection. Choose your connection type (Wi-Fi or LAN cable) and select Custom. Select Automatic for IP Address Settings, Do Not Specify for DHCP Host Name, and Manual for DNS Settings. Enter 8.8.8.8 for Primary DNS and 8.8.4.4 for Secondary DNS. Select Next and then Test Internet Connection.



  • No space left on PS4: This issue means that you don't have enough free space on your PS4 to download the game. To fix it, delete some games or files that you don't need anymore by following these steps: On your PS4 console, go to Settings > Storage. Select the storage device where you want to free up space (System Storage or Extended Storage). Select Applications, Capture Gallery, or Saved Data, depending on what you want to delete. Press Options and select Delete. Choose the items you want to delete and select Delete.



  • The game is not available in your region or country: This issue means that the game you want to download is not licensed or supported in your region or country. To fix it, you can either wait for the game to be released in your region or country, or create a new PSN account with a different region or country by following these steps: On your PS4 console, go to New User > Create a User. Accept the User Agreement and select Create an Account for PlayStation Network. Enter your email address, password, online ID, date of birth, and security question. Choose a different region or country from the drop-down menu and enter a valid address. Confirm your account by clicking on the link sent to your email address.



  • The game is not compatible with your PS4 system software version: This issue means that the game you want to download requires a newer version of the PS4 system software than the one you have. To fix it, update your PS4 system software by following these steps: On your PS4 console, go to Settings > System Software Update. Select Update Now. If there is an update available, select Next. Wait for the update to download and install.



  • The game is not showing up in your library or home screen after downloading it: This issue means that the game you downloaded is not registered or activated on your PS4 console. To fix it, restore your licenses by following these steps: On your PS4 console, go to Settings > Account Management. Select Restore Licenses. Select Restore. Wait for the process to finish.



  • If none of these solutions work, you can contact PlayStation Support for further assistance.
