My PS3 has an error code 8001050F it will play PS2 games and movies but not PS3 games. What is the cause and how to fix
PS3 ERROR CODE 8001050F
This error is caused by an issue with the internal clock of your Playstation 3 hardware which causes you to be signed out of the Playstation Network.
What to do:
A bug has caused the internal clock of your Playstation 3 to be set to January 1, 2000.
According to Sony, unless you own a PS3 Slim system, do not use or start your PS3 system until a fix is found, which should be within 24 hours of March 1, 2010.
If you use your PS3 before the fix is released, you may risk losing trophy data and other game data which will not be able to be recovered.
Since the estimated release date has passed, you should update your PS3 system to the latest firmware.
If you already have the latest firmware installed, return the unit to Sony for repair or replacement.
If your PS3 is still under warranty, the repair or replacement will be free. If not, Sony will charge a flat fee of $150.
PS3 Slim systems are not affected.
