PS3 How to Fix Trophies Error

This error is associated with a failure of the console to synchronise Trophies with the PSN Network.

First off, bear in mind that this problem can be caused by the PSN network itself when the servers are undergoing maintenance or is offline for some reason. The error is also known to occur at times of 'Peak Traffic' on the network so you may need to try again at a different time to get your trophies to synchronise properly.

To resolve this error manually follow these steps;

1) First make sure the system is online and can connect with the internet.

2) Under Game go to Trophy Collection.

3) Instead of X use the Triangle button and then select Sync with Server.

If these steps fail to resolve the issue try again later when network traffic has calmed down a bit and use the same procedure as outlined.

Important: Make sure you are running the latest firmware version at least 3.15 or later (latest is 3.21 but be careful with this one - see here). The reason for this is that Sony resolved most of these synchronising issues with updated firmware.

To upate your firmware - Go to Settings - System Update - Update Via Internet

Hi,

There is a widespread issue occurring right across the board at this very moment with the PSN Network. Some consoles are not synchronising trophies properly due to an internal clock error and this is causing this error to display.

It is expected that Sony will soon have this resolved - within 24 hours they are saying maximum..
