About Error SU-30746-0

PS4 error SU-30746-0 is an update error where the console cannot find the corresponding firmware update file.

You most likely haven't updated your PS4 for a long time, and the firmware version it runs on is no longer supported by the console.

As a result, you only see a black screen with an error message on the screen: (SU-30746-0)

All you can do is click on the Ok button and nothing else.

1. Reload the Station

First, try restarting your console in safe mode.

To do this, turn off the system completely and do not touch it for one minute.

Then press and hold the power button until it beeps twice. Next, connect your controller to your PS4 and press the PlayStation button. Once the controller is paired with the system, restart the console again. To boot the console into safe mode, press the X button on your controller now. The console now powers up without error code SU-30746-0. If it doesn't and Error Code SU-30746-0 still bothers you, go to the next method.

2. Update PS

Download the latest PS4 firmware and save it to an external USB drive. If your console is online, you can skip this step. Next, go to Safe Mode as described in the previous method and connect the controller to the PS4 via a USB cable. Then press the PlayStation button and go to the Update System Software section. Now press the X button on your controller to select an option, or select Update via Internet if you are using Ethernet. Restart your console to verify that error code SU-30746-0 has been cleared.

3. Initialize Disk

If the previous methods did not help, try initializing the console through Safe Mode.

Fixing SU-42118-6 Issue

When error code SU-42118-6 pops up on consoles, in most cases it makes you stuck in a restart loop.

This error is caused by a broken ribbon connector between the motherboard and the BD-ROM. This often happens after self-cleaning the console, when you are using the wrong PS4 hardware. As a result, the system will not be able to communicate with the BD-ROM. In this case, you need to check the BD-ROM tape connection between the drive and the motherboard, as well as look for broken tabs and replace broken console components if necessary.

Often replacing the hard drive of the PS4 console helps stop users from error code SU-42118-6. If the problem reappears after doing this, you can try to update the console on the replaced hard drive.
