Ps3 gives 8002314A error message at final stage of registration.

Only solution I can come up with is to try logging off the network and then back in. If that doesn't fix it then the only option is to contact Playstation themselves.
Hope this helps.

Trying to play nintendo on line. have a new wireless router/modem it is giving an error code of 52230 and says unable to connectg to server. any ideas?

Your nintendo consule without a technical malfunction should integrate to a network. The wii fii feature allows to network by wireless recognition of another consule on the network. The situation requires finding another consule owner to network with. Both consules would communicate by wii fii signals, only require recognising another consule owner that would allow device to device connectivity. keep in mind that, the error message is a computer message indicating a break in the link that could be created once another consule is recognised.

The error message would be intergrated into a network hub once each owner of the consule enable a feature on their device to accept communcation.

The wii fii feature only is advantage to the consule owner compared to connectivity that would have been performed by connection cables earlier in the invention of video gaming.

Find colleages with similar devices, inform them about wanting gaming network connectivity to allow possible network. keep in mind that, networking is a connection involvign entities where people are a requirement..

Your situation would be possible by human networking to make possible, device to device; that would only communicate when enabled features disabled.

Cannot connect to playstation network, cannot create new user just keeps saying error occurred

PS3 Error 80023017 & 8002F0C1

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.

I cannot sign in i have checked internet connections, it says playstation network has failed. i also cannot play on assassins creed as it says there is a problem with the trophies

8001050f Trophy Error:

This is a known problem with the recent O/S update.

As many others have reported this bug occurs when you are supposed to earn a trophy and nothing happens. Somehow user accounts get corrupted :
- Trophy Syncing won't work (Error 8022D11)
- PSN games tell us that the system is not activated.
- Other games will not work either, telling that the data was created by another user and we would have to restart the game.
The only way to get rid of this problem is by deleting the current user and creating a new one with the same name. This however ruins most of the save games because the games won't accept them as ours!! Here is some gathered information :
- It can happen with every games supporting trophies.
- It happens since 2.50 and still happens with 2.52.
- There still is no official statement that this bug exists!

HERE is one link for more info...

Call (800-345-7669)

Sony Network is experiencing sporadic outages in certain areas today.

It is reported to be "scheduled system upgrade" to the network servers - be assured you are not the only one facing this issue.

No UP time has been announced by Sony - they are working to get the system up and running as soon as possible.

The problem is not on your end.

Keep trying to connect.

It may be some time until Sony PlayStation 3 owners can resume their usual online activities, according to a new blog post from Sony revealing it could take 24 hours to fix the glitch, which hit numerous users yesterday.

Sony has gone so far as to advise PS3 owners “do not use [their] PS3 system” until a fix has been issued.

News of the problem — which only affects owners of older PS3s — started to emerge yesterday. PlayStation has been keeping users updated via its Twitter feed.

“We believe we have identified that this problem is being caused by a bug in the clock functionality incorporated in the system,” explains Sony in the blog post.

As we’ve reported, the problems are related to the PlayStation Network, Sony’s online gaming service and store. As well as changing the PS3’s date, the bug signs users out of the PSN service, fails to display trophy data and also affects video playback.

“We are doing our best to resolve the issue and do apologize for any inconvenience cause,” says Sony. We will keep you updated with news on the fix.

"When they [users] try to load up certain games — including the just-released Heavy Rain — they receive the error code and the following message: “Registration of the trophy information could not be completed. The game will now quit.” After the message, the system reboots," Mashable reports.
"The problems seem to mostly affect older, “fat” models of the PS3. Slim models are either not impacted or affected far less frequently."
Part of the problem, according to popular gaming blog Joystiq, apparently could lie in the fact that some PS3 console dates are for some unknown reason having their dates reset to 12/31/1999, throwing the PSN servers out of whack because the service didn't exist back then.
A Sony spokesperson didn't respond to requests for a comment before this post was published [update: we've now heard back, see below], but either way, Sony seem to be assessing the situation, and we'll update once we know more or hear back.
Update 5: It's becoming more and more evident that the issue is hardware related (i.e. effects the older, non-slim version PlayStation 3's rather than the new slim line models) and that Sony will have to roll out an emergency update or instructions on how to fix the problem. This isn't confirmed, but expect to see more news about it shortly.
Update 4: We've finally heard back from a Sony spokesperson, who told us nothing new, only that the company is working on a fix and is aware of the problems.

"I can confirm that Sony Computer Entertainment are aware of the reported issue and are investigating the situation"

he said.
Update 3: The PlayStation team have posted a quick update on their blog mentioning the fact that they now know what is causing the problem and have engineers working to fix the issue "as you read this". Here's the post in full:

We’re aware that many of you are having difficulty connecting to the PlayStation Network this evening. Those of you with “slim” PS3s (the 120/250 GB models) appear to be unaffected.
Know that we have narrowed down the issue and have engineers working to restore service even as you read this. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you, and genuinely appreciate your patience while we work to resolve this.
In the meantime, you may want to follow our Twitter account for the latest updates.

Update 2: For the past hour or so, there's been no more updates from Sony - leaving users wondering just what is going on. We've also had confirmation the issues are affecting users in other locations such as South Africa.
Users are also becoming increasingly worried that the bug or problem, whatever it may be, is deleting hard-earned Playstation Network trophies for games. This is unconfirmed, but worrying nevertheless. We're still on the hunt for an official comment.
Update 1: According to the official Sony Playstation Twitter account, the company are working to narrow down the issue, but believe at this stage "slim" units are unaffected.

"We're narrowing down the issue and continue to work to restore service to all. Updates as soon as we have them. Readers/followers are confirming that "slim" units (120/150 GB models) are connecting normally,"

the company has tweeted.
We're still hunting down an official comment, and will continue to update this article once we hear more.

Xbox wont connect to xbox live

This problem indicates that there is a error with your account. I suggest going to and seeing if you can log in there. From there you should be able to access accounts and billings. Make sure your account is up to date. If it is not then do so and test xboxlive connection once more.
This should help please post if it does not.
