Error 8001050F or Txt_ps3trophy_error Sony PSN Playstation Network

This is a brief Tip for everyone currently panicking today about receiving the 8001050F or Txt_ps3trophy_error

This problem has just been identified by Sony as a current and widespread issue within the PSN Network starting from today and so it is not confined to your console alone.

Breathe sigh of relief now!

There are reports that this problem is mainly effecting the PS3 Fat consoles and may in fact be related to a firmware glitch with the PS3 Fat. Some console owners have reported that this glitch is causing the date to roll back on the PS3 Fat and causing synch issues to occur with the PSN Network synchronisation.

Symptoms may include:

1) Total inability to connect to PSN Network.

2) Crashes during Gameplay.

3) Failure to synchronise trophies for registration which results even in offline games crashing.

4) Error messages as outlined.

Even disconnecting from the internet makes no difference to this symptom.

Solution: Do nothing but sit tight and wait for further word from Sony to confirm the issue and what action needs to be taken (if any).

Error 8001050F has in the past been associated with hardware failure but this Tip is written to pass on some assurance that this is unlikely to be the case at this present moment in time.

Error 8001050F suddenly showed up on the ps3 (Registration of the trophy information could not be completed). I can't sign into PSN or play any games (even though the game is playing "behind" the error message. Help, it was working fine earlier today!


Currently there is a fairly major problem right across the board with the PSN Network. Some consoles are not synching properly and causing problems like you describe.
