How do I redeem codes or sign in for the first time on play station network

It's actually quite easy to setup an account on the Playstation network (PSN) for the first time. You can setup your account using either your computer or your Playstation. Both will need to have internet access. Simply go to the link below if using your computer, and click on setup account. If using your Playstation, power on the console, without a game inside, scroll over to setup and connect your Playstation to your network. Once connected, scroll over to sign-in. You will be able to setup your account, such as user-name, password and demographics. Good luck.

Sign in playstation network

first make sure you set up your network settings to use internet
1. Select (PlayStation Network) > (Sign In).
2. Enter your sign-in ID (e-mail address) and password.
(if you don't already have one you must create one I did this by going to the playstation website not sure if you can do it on the ps3 or not I never tried this just seemed easier so from that site just choose create new account and make your account when its done you should be able to login with it from your ps3)
3. Select [Sign In].

I have a Playstation 2. I was about to play a game (Spyro: A Hero's Tail) and licked on 'load game' when the screen came up with a message saying, 'Load failed! Data could not be loaded...

Try starting the game without the memory card. If it starts up then you know that you have a bad memory card.

My playstation 3 comes on, but after the sony playstation logo goes away, nothing happens. Just the background and nothing else. How can I resolve this? I left it in the car last night and it was very...

This is a problem with the Playstation 3 software becoming corrupt. It is very easy to fix if you follow my simple steps.

Step 1.

Turn your Playstation 3 off into standby mode (red light on)

Step 2.

Press and hold the power button. The Playstation 3 will beep when you first press it, then beep again 5 seconds later and then beep once more and turn off back into standby mode (red light on). You must now release the power button.

Step 3.

Press and hold the power again. The Playstation 3 will beep when you first press it, beep again 5 seconds later then there will be 2 quick beeps together. When you hear these 2 quick beeps release the power button.

Step 4.

Your Playstation 3 will now start up with a screen asking you to connect a controller via USB. Connect your controller and then press the PS button.

Step 5.

A menu will now be displayed on screen. Select option 3 "Restore File System". This will then ask you to confirm that you wish to go ahead with the system restore. Accept whatever the Playstation 3 says. Do not worry about messages saying the hard drive is corrupt, this is actually a good sign.

The Playstation 3 will re-install the system software but should not affect your game saves.

Once you have completed the above, hopefully the Playstation 3 will restart as normal. If it does not, do the above again but choose option 4. If that still does not work then choose option 5, but this will erase your hard disk.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa
