XMB not showing up


Sounds like your cpu has overheated and separated from the board, causing it to freeze before loading the xmb.

I have the80022D11 in the ps3 what to do


Once this occurs, trying to load a save file for a game that supports trophies will give you the option to either start over (wipe the save file) or sync trophies (which fails). At this point trophies will no longer work and save game files for any game that supports trophies will no longer load. The only work around at this point is to delete your PS3 user account (not to be confused with your PSN user account) and create a new one (which you can link to your existing PSN account). Once this is done your trophies will sync, but you will lose all your saved games. If you try to restore any saved games you made before doing this, the error will occur again. The problem appears to be triggered if the user changes his/her email address or password using the XMB account management tools. So until Sony fixes this problem, users should not change their PSN email address or password.

My sons PS3 console keeps coming up with an error code - 80010017 . . . saying that an error has occured . . . what is this problem . Ta .


Hi,

There is already a solution by a User :-

Got home, downloaded flow on the new PS3 and tried to play, just before the game launches, the screen returns to XMB with this error: "There is an error During Startup (80010017)"... But I did Active my new PS3... So I went back into Account Management ([Friends] [Account Management]), de-activated and activated again, PROBLEM RESOVLED. Seems like the machine isn't happy with activation before download, I guess.


If problem still persists, let me know.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Not loading............ READ


Sorry to tell you this, but from your description, something is bollixed in the boot sequence, if you don't have the XMB, the system is hung up...

If you can get to the XMB, do a system format - it could be a hard drive read failure or some such (you could also try swapping the hard drive if you have an extra 2 1/2 drive lying around the house). Unfortunately, from your description, it seems most likely that the unit will have to go back to Sony. The good news is that their turnaround time is FAST... I called on a Wednesday, had my return box on Friday, sent it off, and had a replacement unit the following Wednesday.

Ps3


You can only sign into your Playstation account if you are using your own user profile on the far left of the XMB.

Do a Network test to see if you can even connect to PSN. Go to Settings, Network Settings, and do and Internet Connection Test.

if your test doesn't show your NAT type as either 1 or 2 then your router is being to restrictive. Try changing some of the settings to allow the PS3 full access to the internet.
