This sometimes happens when the software becomes corrupt on the PS3. What I would do is back up all your game saves to a USB memory stick or memory card and then do the following to restore the PS3 software :
Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby mode (red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, beep again 5 seconds later, then beep once more and turn off. Release the power button.
Step 3. Press and hold the power button again. It will beep once when you press it, again 5 seconds later and then there will be 2 quick beeps together. Release the power button when you hear these 2 beeps.
Step 4. The PS3 will start up asking you to connect a controller via USB and press the PS button. Do this and then continue to the next step
Step 5. A menu will load. Select option 5, "Restore PS3 system". Accept anything you need to and wait for the PS3 to restart.

After this procedure, put all your backed up save games back on the PS3 and try signing in again.

This should cure your problem

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Why won't my netflix for ps3 let me sign in?


Typically, this issue is resolved by logging into Netflix via PC and making sure the log in information matches the info on the PS3. Also, be aware that the standard package for Netflix allows only 2 devices to access Netflix from 1 account at the same time. For example, if you are watching Netflix on your PC in 1 room, and someone is watching it on a PS3, then you won't be able to access it from a Smart Phone or other devise, until 1 is disconnected from Netflix.

Ps3 password locked


You may reset your PlayStation Network password two different ways using a personal computer (PC). You may reset it by answering your secret question or have a password reset email sent to the email address linked to your PlayStation Network account.

In order to reset your PlayStation Network password, you must have the following information:
  • PlayStation Network Sign-in ID (email address)
  • Date of Birth
If you have this information, you can reset your PlayStation Network password now. Click here to visit the Password Recovery website. (This is also where you can reset your account password used to access the PlayStation.com website.)

Click here to reset your password from a PS3™ system.

Click here to reset your password from the PSP system.

If you do not have this information, you will need to call Consumer Services department and speak to a representative to reset your password.
Consumer Services Department
800-345-SONY(7669)
Hours of Operation
Monday - Saturday 6:00 AM - 8:00 PM Pacific Time
Sunday 7:00 AM - 6:30 PM Pacific Time

IMPORTANT
If you have changed your password using a computer and had set your PlayStation 3 or PSP system to automatically sign-in, the auto sign in will fail. The PlayStation 3 or PSP system will prompt that the password is invalid, at that point go to the sign in screen and enter the new password you have created.

Problem regarding sony playstation 3(regional coding)


videos from different countries come with different "area codes" which means they are encrypted so only a certain specified country/countries can watch it, generally it the formats are NFTS or PAL so you need to either burn this movie into one of these formats, or find a mod for your PS3 that accepts other countries codes.
