Can you fix error code WS-37390-0 on PS4?

Unfortunately, when it comes to error code WS-37390-0 on PlayStation 4, this is an issue you can have no impact on. Regardless of how many times you reset your console or internet router, you will likely keep getting this PS4 error. It is strictly linked to the PSN service having an outage, so you will need to do something else until Sony’s support team is able to fix the problems keeping players out. We recommend either playing an offline game or doing something else in the meantime.

To get regular updates on how things are looking on the PlayStation Network, we recommend checking the service status page. You can see what areas of the online multiplayer service are currently down or affected and potentially get an estimated time for when things should be back to normal. In most cases, issues like this can last up to a few hours, so we don’t recommend spending too much time on your console trying to force it to work. Find something else to do while checking the status page every now and then so you know when you can hop back in with your friends.
