Diagnosing Hardware Problem with PS4 (CE-34878-0)

Whenever I try to play a game (any game) I get CE-34878-0.

I know that deleting and reinstalling the system software and the game is supposed to fix this issue, but in my case it does not.

I suspect there is a hardware problem, but not sure how to go about identifying it.

If I could verify the component causing the problem, I could decide if I should try to fix it myself or send it to Sony.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

1) Update to newest software

2) remove HDD, and recenter (sometimes minor tweaks cause this issue)

3) safe-mode rebuild database

4) backup game saves to external and then do a full reinstall of 2.55 via safemode and USB stick
