How to fix An error has occurred CE-35694-7 & CE-42555-1 on PS4?

Error code CE-35694-7 – Not enough space

1. Free enough space

Error code CE-35694-7 usually appears when you’re trying to install a new game on your console.

Therefore, it is most often related to insufficient space on the system for the operation to be completed.

So the sensible solution would be to free space. Note that many users mentioned that they freed some space (usually up to 50GB) and it still was not enough. However, when they proceeded to free more space, the error disappeared.

So the recommendation is that you clear more than 50GB and allow enough space for the new games to be installed.


2. Force a system storage status check

  1. Plug the Dual Shock 4 controller into your PS4 system using a physical cable. Then, turn your PS4 system on.
  2. Hold the power button for a couple of seconds until you see the LED light flashing and hear a short beep. After that, your PS4 should power down entirely.
  3. Hit the power button again. The system storage status check process should begin.
  4. Once this procedure completes, the PS4 will automatically restart.

Try installing the game now and see if the error has cleared away. If not, go on to the next step.


3. Restore to factory settings

  2. Next, go to Settings.

  4. Choose Initialize PS4.

On rare occasions, the fault also laid with some corrupt files in the system. 

In this situation, the solution was to resent the console to factory settings, which not only clear the system of any corrupt files but will also restore the database and will also clear anything you have saved up until that point.
