PS4 Update 6.02 is now available, but some users are experiencing problems. The PS4 Update 6.02 error is similar to issues that some users experience in previous updates. It can be frustrating but there may be workaround.

The problems usually occur when you’re trying to download the latest update via Wi-Fi. If possible, always use an Ethernet connection when downloading updates. You can also download updates onto a USB stick from your PC and update manually.

The PS4 Update 6.00 error results in a number of different scenarios. Some users are reporting audio issues, flickering screens and console crashes. Over on Reddit, there’s a thread about it, along with multiple other threads from users claiming that the new update has caused problems.

    Error SU-42118-6 while updating to 6.0
    I’ve booted in safe mode, (usb )done each of the steps. Still nothing, the same annoying error. I just want my system to work. I come home, turn it on, and now it’s a brick. Any advice or suggestions? I’ve rebuilt the database, deleted the notifications, updated via safe mode. I’m frustrated and out of options. One post I read said that it was a broken blu-ray drive. I’m not too sure about that one though. I download most of my games and haven’t used a disc in a long time. Plus, why would so many others be getting the error as well? I need help, please. PLAYSTATION help me.

    Hello. So I may have some insight. I have been having the issue, Error SU-42118-6. I may have just resolved it however.

    From my research, it has to do with a malfunctioning disk reader. Something to do with the PS4 communicating with the chip of the reader. I have been playing around with the connectors and such.

    Load safemode, Initialize (Load new firmware from USB)(The 1GB file, not 500MB file). One it loads the error. Unplug the GREY connector from the Disk readers chip board and plug it back in. This seems to have by passed the error on second loading, and allowed me to update the firmware!

      What grey connector? So the ps4 is on and open at the same time? where is this grey connector and is it accessable without removing the power supply?

      • Lupe Soliz

        The grey connector is only on the older PS4 models and it runs in between the battery and disc drive up and over drive to connect to the disc drive motherboard. It is not on the slim models. I dont know if there is an equivalent ribbon on the slim. I hope so, cause thats what I have. And yes it would have to be on and open. No power supply removal is necessary.
