Hello. You need to go to System Settings, then Format PS3. All you need to do is a quick format and it will erase all of the past users info and then you can customize the system for yourself. Thanks!!

Previous owner login information-Playstation 3 60GB


The only way to do this would be to completely restore the PS3 system so that when it next turns on it asks for your information.

Hope this helps

My PS3 is asking for a wpa key code so I can go online?


If you dont know your wpa network key try to reconfigure your wireless network again.

Access the configuration page of your router.
>Type on the address bar 192.168.0.1
>On login type Admin leave password blank. if you set up a password or the login page use that one.
>Once inside the Dlink Page
>Clik Setup and on the left side click wireless setting.
>If given the option to click on manaul wireless connection setup click on it.
>Once you have the wireles window
>try to change the network name to a new one and scroll down
>Under security choose WPA security (enhanced)
>Scroll down and under the Passphrase type in your new network password or security key and confirm it.
>Click on Save Settings
>If it asks you to reboot then reboot it, if not, its ok.

We bought a ps3 used the other owner had a online password we need the information to sign it to my son as the user we dont know the other user password how can we fix this problem


Hi renees1172,

If you would like to create a PSN account for your son/already have one, then it really doesn't matter if you were to:

-Reset to factory/default settings
-Format the PS3 hard drive (although if you do this, please make sure you backup all essential pictures/music/videos/game saves onto a usb drive)

From there onwards, you will have every setting restored to the way it was intended for a new owner, fresh out of the factory. You can then connect to anything without having to worry about security codes etc.

Hope this helps,

Please leave feedback,

Thanks!!!

We do not know our password for the f5d7230 wireless router and cant connect our ps3 to it. Im trying to find a WEP code to input on the ps3. Belkins online manual suggests i need to reset the router to...


Hiya, when you go to your router homepage, normally an address like 192.168.2.1 for most belkins, there will be a security tab, if you look at the wep settings it should give you what the wep key is, if not you can generate a new one and put it into your pc's and ps3,
Your password however if not changed from original will be blank just hit the submit button,
Also there should be a reset button in the casing of the router, this will reset it to factory where password will be blank so hit the submit button, hope this helps

PS3 email user and password


You can log in as a new user but im not sure if you'll have admin control of the system, might do though. failing that you could reformat the hard drive but you'll lose all your saved data, music, game saves etc

Forgott my ps3 online password


Try adding a new user to the PS3 (1st icon in the XMB bar). Once that is done set up the new user online and make sure you check off the auto sign in box so you don't have to do this again. if everything goes well and you can use the new user for online and what not , just delete your original one and it should be fine.
