Im trying to make a playstation network account for ps3 and the error code 80023017 keeps popping up. What can i do to fix this?

Greetings Dillion2763

Unfortunately, this error code is the after effect of Ps3 Firmware Upgrade 3.50. The only thing you can do at this point is either wait for Sony to release a patch, or restore your ps3 to factory settings.
I apologize for the inconvenience. Thank you for using FixYa! =)

Same problem, updated to 3.5 and now it will not sign in, reset, or even let me create a new account to sign in. I keep getting the 80023017 error code which Sony is completely worthless in addressing. ...

downloaded the latest update for ps3 3.5 and then when i turned it on it usually signs me in automatically but i had to put in my password so i put it in but it says wrong password or sign-in ID so i went on forgot password and it goes to a different screen and says 'an error has occured. (80023017)' what do i do? same problem as me ? psn maintence dont panic

I cant sign up for a new psn accont it comes up whith erroe(80023017) its bein doin it for about 6hrs now and im getin pi**ed off with it now can u help thanks

You dont have to worry much the code means that its on the PSN side. They are more than likely making adjustments to the store or there is just an overload of people on there right now... or it could just be maintainence on the network. Try again in a couple of hours and it will work... If you dont want to wait just call sony and ask what the (*&^ is going on there. :)
