I am getting Error Code NW-31294-9 when i turn on and log into my PS4. It tells me it is unable to connect to the network, and I am unable to get anything in my "Whats New" section, nor other parts of games I have installed. The regular "Recent Activity" or "Related Items" tabs do not show up under games either, nor can i get into the game page by pressing down on the d-pad or analog stick. Is ANYONE else having this issue? i cannot get a hold of Sony to get a response.
Is your PS4 updated to firmware 1.51? You can do this through a USB drive since you don't have network access from the console. Are you trying to connect wired or wireless? Have you contacted Sony (1-800-345-SONY)?
If your inital boot consisted of a HDD test and now you're getting errors, I would pop a brand new HDD in and see if that fixes the issues once you've fully updated the PS4. I say this because some people on here are having crazy issues, but some of them upgrade to another HDD and don't have issues anymore. It's hard to pin point what exactly is causing what, but if that's a solution, why not go that route for now? Let us know!
