    The PS4 system has been banned from using PlayStation Network.



    When using PlayStation Network all users must behave in line with our Terms of Service and User Agreement. Users who do not may be suspended or banned.

    If you see this error your PS4 system has been banned from accessing PlayStation Network.


    They don't send an email for a console ban as a rule.

    All you can do is phone support and talk to them about it. They won't tell you specific details, but should be able to give you a rough idea. 

    Did you share your details with a friend so you could share your games? Did you get a refund for a game via your bank (chargeback)? Those are the most common reasons.
