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!!

Hi. My wifi internet connection requires online password verification, So i have to open web browser and provide userid and login to start using internet. But my Ps3 browser is not showing the pop up...


The PS3 browser doesn't work so well with that kind of stuff. You generally do all the authentication during the setup with your wirless router.
Try changing your password, using a different brand of routers, or simply change your security type like TSPK-WEP, or plain TSPK

I have brouht a second hand ps3 and it sil has the orignal owner email and password and user name how to i change this so i can play online with my friends


To delete a user you must be login as another user and select the user you want to delete and press triangle then delete

Once that's done you can make a new PSN account for your new user name to go online.

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

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!!!

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.
