Restoring A Deleted PS3 User

I jsut got a PS3 so i got my account as a master account. I signed up for online play and did the lot. I also downloaded Warhawk and Tekken. As i have two other brothers they too wanted there own user so i made them both one. I then decided i didnt like my online ID and seeing how the only way to change it is to make a new account i foolishly saved my game data one one of my brothers account. deleted my master account and made a new master account with the desired online ID. i tryed to get on my downloaded games (warhawk and tekken) and it would not let me. is there any way i can ether get the game to work on my new master account or get my lost user back? Thanking you in advance, Scott

I can't login to my email account, Its showing that it's been deleted.

You can't restore a recently deleted user if:
  • The deleted account's username matches an existing group, username, or email alias that's been created in the meantime. If it does, you'll see a "username already exists" error message.
  • You don't have an available user license, in which case you'll see a "domain is over user limit" error message.
To restore a recently deleted user:
  1. Sign in to the Google Admin console.
  2. Click Users.
  3. Under Filters at the side of the user list, choose the Recently deleted users filter. If you don't see Filters, click .
  4. Check the box next to the user you want to restore. You can restore only one user at a time. If the user doesn't appear in this list, the account was permanently deleted and can no longer be restored.
  5. Click .
  6. If you have multiple organizational units, select the unit to which you want to assign the user.
The Admin console restores the account as suspended if the restored user's Drive data was transferred before the user was deleted, or if the user was suspended at the time the account was deleted. Otherwise, the user appears in the organization you specified when restoring the user.

Restore my Gmail account

Many email users know the feeling of having inadvertently clicked the wrong link in their email program. In a moment, they can wipe out hours of work.
Other users have faced the frustrations that result when a mistaken click deletes their entire email history.
Gmail has built safeguards into its email program that will allow a user to recover deleted emails. Gmail also allows a user to recover a deleted Gmail account as long as the core Google account remains active.

Log in to your Google account using your Google username and password.
Go to the Google homepage and click "Sign up for Gmail."
The Gmail sign-up form will open with your former Gmail username in the username field.

Complete the sign-up form and enter your existing Google account password. Click "Continue."
Your Gmail inbox should appear.

Restoring a Deleted Gmail Email

Open the Gmail inbox page and click "Trash" on the left-hand toolbar.

Click the box next to the message that you would like to restore.

Click the "Move To" button on the Trash box's toolbar, and then click "Inbox" on the dropdown menu.
The deleted message will be restored.

How can i get my ps3 files back after restoring my ps3?

Unless you backed them up onto a flash drive or some other external memory unit, there is on way to get them back. However, a lot of data is saved server-side, which means it's saved on the internet rather than on your console, so if you used PSN to play online before you restored, you should have some things stored online. Generally server-side data is things like exp. points and rank, high scores, trophies, etc. You can get these back by recovering/signing into your PSN account from your newly restored PS3.

My ps3 doesnt let me play online call of duty

Do you have a PSN account? If no, create one, sign in, then try again.
If you already have a PSN account and you're signed in, can you access the PSN store? If not, verify that your PS3 is connected to the internet.

If everything above failed, it would be easier for us if you gave us the error message you're getting when trying to play online.

I own the PS3 and my stepson created a master account now I cant do anything with it. How do I delete and create a new one?

Deleting a master account is simple, just be logged in as that account, highlight that user in the Users list, hit triangle and select "delete". After confirming that user will no longer be on your PS3 (this will also wipe your sub account, most likely).

Now, make a new master user in the Users list with the name you want and go to the "sign up for the PlayStation network" logo in the PlayStation network section. When going through the process select "master account" and enter the log in details. You most likely will have to use a new e-mail address as I do not believe you can upgrade a sub account to a master.

When i downloaded a new ps3 patch i played like 30 minutes.Then when i come from school i try to sign in and my password was deleted and when i put forgot password it appears error 80023017 and when i try...

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.

Signing into the network.

for playing online with the PS3 you have at first to create a PSN (Playstation Network) Account. You can do this easylie right on the PS3 at the "Account-Management".

After creating an Account you have to log on with this account to the Playstation Network (This function also can be found in the XMB "Account" Menu.

When you log on for the first time you can easy mark the "Automatic Log-In to PSN" checkbox so that the PS3 already log on to the Network. I prefer this because it is much easier than always log in manual - This Setting is optional (Just as you want it to be set).

After doing the Steps above you should be able to play online without any problem.

I hope this Steps are the solution to your problem and I wish you a lot of fun at the PSN.

With kind regards,
