What does it mean?

When users get this error, they receive the message, "An error occurred in the application.". If you are unfortunate enough to be hit with this, it indicates a potential problem with either the application you were trying to launch, or the console itself.

Unfortunately, there is no diagnostic tool to pinpoint what is causing the error. If it is only happening with a specific game or application, that may point to a problem with that specific program. On the other hand, if you are receiving it on other occasions, it may indicate a more fundamental issue with your PS5.
