whats error code 8001050F


There is a worldwide issue which Sony are fully aware of which is affecting
all old model PS3's, The new slimline PS3's are not affected.

Due to an internal clock failure on the units they are not syncronsing with the
network time on the PSN's end. Causing error-8001050F

There is no official ETA although at 16:58 GMT today (1st March) Sony released a
statement stating they should have the problem resolved within 24 hours and have
advised all PS3 users experiencing issues NOT to use their PS3 until they
advise the issue is resolved as it could result in loss of functionality and
further damage.
