SOURCE: my ps3 is saying my

PS# Error 80023017

Following on from the PS3 3.50 firmware update today, we have started to hear of owners having problems logging on to their accounts.

We have heard of PS3 owners who have updated their system complaining that they cannot sign in, and every time they enter their password are getting the wrong password message. We have had customers who have two PSN accounts and cannot log into either of them. They are met with wrong password message, and even when they use "Forgot your Password" all that comes up is an error.

Conrad Zimmerman of Destructtoid is reporting that PSN is going to have some scheduled maintenance today. This could be why users are complaining of problems logging on to their accounts.

The maintenance is expected to take place during 8 am until 5pm Pacific time. There will be a lot of users who are at work during this time so it will not be a problem for them, but for everyone else it will be somewhat of an annoyance.

Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.@#$%

SOURCE: cant remember ps3 password or e-mail add

The only way to find out ps3 password is hacking into it with brute force attack.

The only simple way to get your password back is calling sony, you get the phone number in your PS3 documentation.

I cant get into my iphone i dont know my icloud account, what should i do?


Hello Diana,

First, don't freak out, we're human and this stuff happens. Apple provides multiple ways to recover a forgotten ID login or password, and you can start the recovery process either directly on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, Mac, Windows PC, or just about anything with a web browser.
The different processes described below will work to recover a forgotten Apple ID (meaning the email address used to login), and/or reset a forgotten Apple ID password. This can be particularly helpful if you're setting up a new device for yourself or someone else, switching a device to a credit card-free ID, or changing the Apple ID associated with a device, and you can't remember the pertinent login information, or if your email changed at some point and you didn't update your Apple details to go along with it.
Before anything else, know that you can always Contact Apple for help with Apple ID account security if you want assistance through official channels to regain account access, which may be the best option for users who are overwhelmed or confused.
Recover or Reset Forgotten Apple ID or Password on iPhone & iPad
This is all done on an iOS device and is often the simplest way to log back into an Apple account:
1. Open the Settings app and scroll down and tap on "iCloud"
2. Tap on the email address at the very top of the iCloud settings screen
3. Tap on the blue text underneath the password entry that says "Forgot Apple ID or Password?" where you'll have two choices:
If you know your Apple ID and don't remember the password, type in your email address and click "Next" to start the reset process
If you don't know your Apple ID, tap on "Forgot your Apple ID?" and fill out your full name and email address to recover the Apple ID login (yes, you can then do the password reset after you have the Apple ID)
Answer the security questions pertaining to that Apple ID, and follow the onscreen directions to complete the process
At this point you should be good to go, you can reset the password for the account and then login as usual.
What if this doesn't work, or what if it doesn't find your Apple ID? You can try one of the next two options:
Find a Forgotten Apple ID by Email or Old Email Address
This is a more advanced trick to search multiple email addresses, which is incredibly helpful if you switched email accounts at some point in time and that's what has caused the login problem. This can be done with any web browser in iOS, OS X, or Windows:
1. Open the web browser of choice and go to this Apple iForgot website: https://iforgot.apple.com/appleid (creative name, eh?)
2. Enter the first and last name associated with the Apple ID, your current email address, and any and all prior email addresses to start the reset process
3. Answer the security questions associated with the user to complete the reset process
This will help to find the Apple ID, but if you can't recall the password to that ID then you'd need to go to the next step as well.
Reset an Apple ID Password from the Web
You can also start the password reset process from the official Apple ID website, this also can be done any device as long as you have a web browser:
1. Go to this My Apple ID site and under "Manage your Apple ID" choose the "Reset your password" option
2. Enter the email address associated with the account and answer the security questions as usual to complete the password reset process
Finally, if you're completely stuck, you're annoyed, confused, or none of the above has worked, you can contact Apple directly about your account here (Contact Apple for help with Apple ID account security ) or at you local Apple Store and in many situations they can help you to regain access again.

Ho can I access my psn account? I don't remember my email id or password?


If you don't remember the password you can, of course, reset it but you have to know which email address you used to setup the PSN account.

If you don't know the PSN account email address, you'll need to go to the web site on some PC with a browser and go to the account settings there to see if you can provide other information that identifies you to either let you change the email address/PSN ID or have them show you.

Not much to go on, and you'll need to do the legwork on the PSN web site outside of the PS3 console until you figure it out and then you can go to the console and sign in with the refreshed credentials.

I have 2 email accounts. I.want to have one account this problem is what is confusing google. I get a gift card I put it into one account and Then the other account is Where the games are on but I cant...


You can abandon one of the email accounts. In order to access the one you forgot the password for, see if there is a password reminder option on the logon screen. Depending on the service you are using, it will either show you a hint that you set up as a reminder when you created the account or it will offer to send the password or a reset code to another email address you provided as an alternate. Sometimes, you can get the code or password sent to your cell phone as a text message if you provided a number when you set it up.
The other option is to log on to the site where you have the games and change the default email address for the games.

How do i recover my password?


You will have to reset your password to your Microsoft account online.

To reset your Microsoft account password online, go to the Get back into your account page and follow these steps:
  1. In the first text box, enter your Microsoft account.
    Note If you don't know your Microsoft account, see Find your Microsoft account email address or password.
  2. In the second text box, type the characters displayed on the screen. This is to verify that you aren't a robot.
  3. Click Next.
On the next screen, you'll be given the option of having a reset link sent to you by email, or having a code sent to your phone.
Choose the option that works best for you:
  • Email me a reset link: Choose this option to have a reset link sent to the alternate email address that's associated with your account. When you open the password reset email, click the link to reset your password.
  • Send a code to my phone: Choose this option if you have associated a phone with your account where you can receive a security code by text or voicemail. If you choose this option, you'll be asked to re-enter the last 4 digits of your phone number as an additional security measure.
What to do if you can't use any of the password reset options
If you can't use any of the password reset options, you can still access your Microsoft account by completing an online account recovery form. To do this, go to Recover your Microsoft account and follow these steps:
  1. In the Email address text box, enter the email address for the Microsoft account you're trying to access.
  2. In the Contact email address text box, enter a current email address where we can contact you.
  3. In the third text box, type the characters displayed on the screen. This is to verify that you aren't a robot.
  4. Click Next.
To help maintain the security of your Microsoft account, you'll be prompted for several pieces of identification information that you provided when you initially set up your account.
Tips for completing the online account recovery form
  • Provide an alternate email address. Make sure you have access to this email address so that we can send your account information to you.
  • Answer as many questions as you can.
  • Use the information you provided when you created the account or last updated it.
  • Submit the form from a computer you frequently use.
  • Keep in mind that your email address may be country-specific. For example, if you created your account in Sweden, your domain would be "hotmail.co.se" instead of "hotmail.com."
After you complete the online account recovery form, you'll receive an email acknowledging that your request has been received, and you'll receive a response to that request within 24 hours (generally much sooner).
Notes
  • The password reset link will expire within 24 hours of delivery, so you'll want to keep an eye out for it. If you don't receive an email, check your spam or junk folder to see if any of the account recovery emails are there.
  • We highly recommend that you take a few minutes to update your account so that you can easily reset your password if you need to do so in the future. To update your security info, see "Update your Microsoft account security information " below.
Enter a new password
Once you've received an email with a password reset link, click the link in the email to reset your password.
After clicking the link, you'll be prompted to choose a new password and enter it twice. Passwords should be at least 8 characters long and should contain a mix of upper and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols.
If you can't reset your password
If you've gone through the online password recovery process but haven't been able to provide enough information to complete the recovery, contact Xbox Support so that we can perform a deeper investigation into your account history and see if we can complete the verification process to provide you with a password reset. This process typically takes 24 hours, but it can be delayed if we are missing any information.
When you contact Xbox Support, have the following information available:
  1. The Microsoft account email address.
  2. An alternate email address where we can contact you if we have questions.
  3. The gamertag associated with the Xbox Live profile.
  4. The reference number from the email you received from Microsoft saying we were unable to verify your identification.
  5. The console ID or device ID of the console you use most often.
  • If you're an Xbox 360 user, provide your 12-digit Xbox 360 console ID. You don't have to be connected to the Internet or Xbox Live to collect your console ID. To find your ID:
    • Press the Guide button in the center of your controller.
    • Navigate to Settings.
    • Select Console settings.
    • Select System info.
  • If you're in the process of upgrading from Xbox 360 to Xbox One, provide your Xbox 360 console ID (see above for instructions). The more account history we can review, the better our chances of successfully recovering your account.
  • If you're an Xbox One user, provide the 16-character device ID. Your console must be connected to the Internet in order to access the Xbox Live device ID. To find your ID:
    • From the Home screen, press the Menu button on the Xbox One Wireless Controller.
    • Select Settings.
    • Select System.
    • Select Console info.

My son got a ps3 the ps3 has turned its self off. he restarted it and all his files and date has been lost. the problem is he cant remember his user i.d and pass word how can he get this back thank you


he needs to remember the email address he used to create the PSN account. without knowing the email address used, nothing can be recovered.

if your son does know the email, he can click forgot password and try to recover the password or reset it.

contacting sony will not produce any result as many users have tried before. sony will not release any confidential information.

if all is lost, you must create a new account with a new email address.

please keep record of the email address and password.
