How To Fix Playstation Plus Error Code ce-117773-6?

Fix 1: Wait For new tiers to launch

In an article PushSquare confirms that PS Plus Subscription Stacking Has Been Blocked by the Playstation.

Here is what PushSquare mentioned

Sony has officially confirmed that it has blocked existing PS Plus subscribers from stacking memberships prior to the release of its new tiers. In a sneaky update to an FAQ, the platform holder added the following language: “If you currently have a PS Plus or PS Now membership, due to changes we are making to the service prior to launch, you won’t be able to redeem a voucher code for that service until your existing membership expires and deactivates, or after the new PS Plus service launches in your area, whichever happens first.” Source

But you don’t need to worry about your card expiry as prepaid card don’t expire and the codes generated for online purchases has an expiry date of 12 months. So you just need to wait till Playstation launch their new tiers.

If still, you have some kind of doubt you can directly contact PlayStation support for more clarity.

Fix 2: Power Cycle The Playstation

If a Reddit thread some users have mentioned that they were able to fix the issue by power cycling the Playstation. So we will suggest you to do the same, maybe this resolves the issue for you too.

  • Power off Playstation.
  • Then unplug the Playstation power cable from the power outlet.
  • Now, wait for around 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Then plug in the Playstation power cable to the power outlet.
  • Now check if it fixes the error code.

Fix 3: Try This Hack By A Reddit User

So basically I was researching this topic and in a Reddit thread, one user mentioned this solution. Many users have also mentioned that they tried it and it fixes the issue for them.

We can’t confirm that this will 100% work for you or not, but I think you can give it a try.

So basically when you’re on the Home Screen have the ps subscription you want in your cart then go and find the tab that says “ps plus collection “ it’s gonna bring you to a screen that shows the games u get with ps plus click any game with the yellow plus it’s gonna bring you to another screen where it shows the subscriptions make sure it’s the same one in you cart or that you want and click purchase and you’re done.
