What is NBA 2K21 CE-34878-0 error?

NBA 2K21 CE-34878-0 is an error code that only PS4 players encounter, usually when playing on MyTeam mode. This error shows up after NBA 2K21 crashes.

What causes NBA 2K21 CE-34878-0 error?

There are a number of possible reasons for NBA 2K21 CE-34878-0 error. Below are some of the known issues in a PS4 that can trigger this error.

Random NBA 2K21 game bug.

For others, NBA 2K21 CE-34878-0 error is a one-time thing. I experienced it once before when I played MyTeam but lucky for me, the issue did not return after I rebooted my console.

PS4 firmware is outdated.

By default, your PS4 will give you a warning to update the system if it tries to play online and the software detects a new version. However, if you don’t normally connect your PS4 to the internet, or if you only play NBA 2K21 offline, it’s possible that the game may have triggered a bug because the PS4 firmware is outdated. 

To check if that’s the case, try connecting your PS4 to the internet so it can check for OS updates. Install any new updates if they are available.

Corrupted game files.

If NBA 2K21 game files are damaged, the game may suffer setbacks including crashes, errors, or performance issues.

Hard drive problem.

A more serious reason why some PS4 games may encounter severe errors, meaning that the game can crash to the Home screen and may become unplayable, is a bad hard drive. 

The default hard drive on the PS4 is just like a regular mechanical hard drive on most computers and as such, it can go bad if a component fails. 

At other times, your hard drive may suffer from data corruption due to software glitches, which can effectively affect how games work.

Is there a way to fix NBA 2K21 CE-34878-0 error? There have been many players who managed to fix this error. Check out the solutions below and see which one will work in your case.

  1. Keep everything updated.

    You want to make sure that your PS4’s software environment is updated. This means that you should ensure that the software and all apps/games are running their latest versions. This is the simplest way to fix known bugs and prevent new ones from developing.

  2. Refresh the system cache.

    If your PS4 is fully updated but NBA 2K21 CE-34878-0 error still shows up, the next thing that you want to do is to fully reboot the console. This will ensure that you refresh the system cache, which can sometimes become corrupted and may lead to minor issues.
    To refresh the system cache, first, you want to turn the PS4 off. 
    Once the console is powered down, unplug its power cord from the power outlet and wait for 30 seconds. 
    Then, after 30 seconds, restart the console, load the game, and see if the error returns.

  3. Repair Game Files.

    For those who may have issues with corrupted game files, there are two things that you can do. One is to delete your game data locally (be sure that you create a back up in the cloud before doing this) and the other is by rebuilding your PS4 database.

  4. Reinstall NBA 2K21.

    A drastic solution that you can do when dealing with NBA 2K21 CE-34878-0 error is by deleting the game and reinstalling it. This often works for glitches that lie deeper than what basic troubleshooting can address.

  5. Check for hard drive errors.

    At this time, one of the solutions above should resolve NBA 2K21 CE-34878-0 error. However, if nothing has worked so far, you may have to consider that your hard drive may be at fault. 
    Diagnosing a bad hard drive on a PS4 though is not easy since, unlike a regular computer, there are no available software tools that you can run to check for errors. But, if you regularly encounter persistent errors across all or multiple games, that should tell you that your hard drive may need to be formatted, or worse, replaced.
