Question about Sony PlayStation® 3 (60 GB) Console

2 Answers

Previous owner login information-Playstation 3 60GB

I bought my ps3 used two years ago. I'm just now getting used to internet capability. When I try to login to the Playstation Network or other programs that require valid email address and password, it always shows the previous owner's info. I try to put in own email address and a password and it always says "invalid email address and/or password". I'd like to get more involved with online programs like the Playstation Network but I can't. I've changed the user info but that doesn't help me login. How do I replace the previous owner's info with my own so the ps3 system recognizes me instead of the previous owner. Thanks.

The only way to do this would be to completely restore the PS3 system so that when it next turns on it asks for your information.

Hope this helps

If you connect your PS3 on line to a different internet box do you lose all your memory stored whilst on previous internet connection

As far as retaining your information it should be fine as long as you do not wipe the memory or restore to factory. It should all be linked to your account, you should not lose any information.

I bought My playstation 3 a year ago, now it won't read any discs

This is a common problem on the ps3 unfortunately and is caused by a faulty blue-ray drive. Unit will have to go back to Sony for service.

You should try a DVD cleaning disk first to be sure that dirt on the laser lense is not causing the issue

However if this fails and you are confident with electronics there are several videos on YouTube showing how to replace the drive if you choose to order it and do it yourself.

See an example below.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Many Thanks

My ps3 keeps freezing up. i bought it less than a year ago

Does your PS3 have the latest update? If you don't have your PS3 connected to the Internet you will need to go to the Sony website and download it to your computer. From there you can burn it to a CD or a Memory Stick to transfer the install file to the PS3. Here is the link to the 2.52 update...
