Question about Sony PlayStation® 3 (80GB) Console

Credit Card Info is Invalid

My problem is that the awful account management calls my info invalid no matter how exact it is. Customer representatives are lost, unable to help out AT ALL and no one on the internet can help me. Worst thing about it is that the system locks me out for 24 long hours after my third try. I have to wait till the next day just for them to lock me out the system again. I've been at it for frustrating weeks, with each day making the next feel hopeless.

Funny thing is, I've only made one purchase. The DLC came in separate sets so I made the next purchase in the same day. The first on I mentioned went fine but the second came to this error code: "80023102". Apparently, according to the great help hired by Sony, I needed to try again and I DID try again... for three days. I went out to the internet for help and they tell me to delete the billing info and to enter it in again... and now this "Card is invalid" bull shows up EACH time no matter which card I use. I'm not going to buy a damn PSN card to get $20 for one thing that costs $6.

PLEASE only answer if you feel certain or if you combatted this type problem before. You may offer suggestions but make sure that you nte that they aren't fact. Previous help on the internet probably did me more harm than good (Above).

What is a invalid social security number

This can mean several things.
1. It is not a valid social security number, In which you will need to check your ss card and possibly contact your county courthouse for help
2. They ran a credit check and your ssn returned information that keeps you from renting that property.
It would be best however to contact the person(s) who told you the ssn was invalid and ask them exactly what "invalid" means.

Hey sorry to hear that. The easiest way to deal with problems like this is to call microsoft. I know I know, their customer service isn't the greatest and you will have to wait but they usually solve the problem and they have all your account info in the system.
I think their number is 1-800-4MY-XBOX
Good luck!

You can add funds to your PSN Wallet via the psn website via your PC. Another option would be to call your CC company and see if they are blocking any transactions from the PSN network. They might have put a block on it for your safety.

I can sign in

[Solution # 1]

That sounds as if your account was either hacked or deleted. In case of a hacked account send a mail describing your problem to If this doesn’t help, call Yahoo: 1-408-349-1572, explain to a customer service person what happened. They will ask you to do certain things and then they compare your original info with the changed info.

To see how well this works, go to the links below…:-);……

If your account was deleted and not hacked, Yahoo will let you know when you try the suggestion above. Good luck!

[Solution # 2]
