Question about Sony Playstation 3 Slim Console

1 Answer

Please help, how do you log out of your account on the PS3 console? I'm logged in on the original account I set it up with but have forgotten my password and the PS3 is not giving me any of the options it should be according to other posts I have searched. I genuinely do not remember what my password was when I set it up, was so long ago and I can't find any options to reset...! All I wanted to do was buy a COD add on....!

    Set up another account if you only have one, then the system has to give you the options to sign out as you have two profiles now!! It's a bit of a pain setting it all up again but it will sort it ;)

Go to PSN on your pc and you should get more options to reset your password using your DOB and your E-mail address. if not think you might have to do a reset on the ps3. make sure you back it up first.

Log on problems will not accept email adress or password

Go to PSN website and try to log in there. If successful, then double check your CAPS and numbers. If it wont let you log into your PSN account from your computer, than you either did not set up an account yet, or by some small chance your account was suspended. Good luck. ^^

How can i play two ps3 online at the same time

You mean on the same account? Once somebody signs into an account that's already logged in then the first person to log in gets logged off.

Just make a new account on a different PS3.

Signing into the network.

for playing online with the PS3 you have at first to create a PSN (Playstation Network) Account. You can do this easylie right on the PS3 at the "Account-Management".

After creating an Account you have to log on with this account to the Playstation Network (This function also can be found in the XMB "Account" Menu.

When you log on for the first time you can easy mark the "Automatic Log-In to PSN" checkbox so that the PS3 already log on to the Network. I prefer this because it is much easier than always log in manual - This Setting is optional (Just as you want it to be set).

After doing the Steps above you should be able to play online without any problem.

I hope this Steps are the solution to your problem and I wish you a lot of fun at the PSN.

With kind regards,
