There is no such thing as lossing your friend list except if you accidentally deleted them from your friend list.
There are a few ways you might be able to go about this,
Follow the steps below to see if they help you.
1.Ensure that you are signed in and if not you can sign in or try signing out and signing in again and then all your friends should be on your account there.
2.If that doesn't work, you can check the list of recent people with whom you played games and if you played a multiplayer game with any of them recently, you should be able to see their names and re-add them.
Lastly, if the previous steps don't help, you are sure to have sent them messages of recent.
You can go into your sentbox of messages and you should see a list of all sent messages and the people to whom you sent these messages. You can go through the messages and add them again.
hope this solution was helpful? please comment for more information and thank you for using Fixya.com

I can't play with one of my friends on playstation 3


Well, if you're up for anything. Try having your friend do exactly what you did with the ports/updating/modem. What ever you do, he has to duplicate or else you guys will be on a different page.

My new wireless controlpad will not connect


I'm having the same problem... Only when I click my PS button, it flashes, normally. Then again, it's faint, and very, very fast, machine-gun-like flashing. And it's really annoying. Who knows how to fix this problem? I've tried resetting, there's no way to connect the controller with the console it's self, I've tried using the wire to connect it... No luck, nothing's happening. Please help?

First make sure that your PS3 connects with your acces point eather wireless or with wire, te second step is configurate your PS3 for wire connection or wireless connection.
These settings are found under the network settings.
Also see the manual to see how you need to configurate the PS3 in detail.

Allso make sure when the PS3 is connected corectly to the acces point that the firewall of the acces point is not interfearing the connection.

My ps3 takes 40 seconds to show friends on list then another 40 toopen text message very frustrating please help me


Unfortunately this has more to do with your internet connection then your PS3 hardware. There are two things you can try with very little investment in time and money. First, make sure your connection is good. If your using a wireless signal, be sure your PS3 is getting plenty of signal. If not, try moving it closer to your wireless router. If your using a wired connection, make sure all wires are plugged in correctly and securely, both into the PS3 and the router.

If your using a wireless connection, try switching to a wired connection. This can improve online features by a significant amount. A good Ethernet cord ( the type used by a PS3 to connect to a router) can be picked up at a good price at your local electronics store, or at a larger hardware store like Home Depot or Lowes. Ask at the help desk and they can point you to the cords.

My friends list has disappeared on all games, I've tried changing the comment but no luck. Can I get my friends list back without losing any data?


wjbanfield

Alot of times if the friends list is disappearing this means that you are losing your network connection causing you to disconnect from the PSN. Once you are disconnected from the PSN your friends list will go away.

Also let me know if you are connected via a wired or wireless connection on your network.

Trying to reinstall PS3 wireless, having difficulty


you need to check your internet connection and connect the ethernet cable to the back of the router. if its not synce you will have to unplug and re boot. If the router seem to be working, then you have to go to the ps3 and redo your choice for connection. wireless and search then, find your router on the list and connect.

Ps3 friends list


All of a sudden I had the same problem occur on my PS3 last night.

It took me hours of connecting, and reconnecting to the network to figure it out.......then I realised !!!

I had a comment on PSN ID. I deleted the comment, and then it all sorted itself out, literly within 5 seconds it all came back to life.

If you have a comment, try to delete it, and let me know how you get on.

Ps3 friends list


First go to settings and have the PS3 update the system's date and time via internet. If that fails, try rebuilding your database (It's helped many people in the past).

This is how to rebuild your database:

1. Turn off your PS3.
2. Press and Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again. Once the system is off then take your finger off the button.
3. Press and Hold the power button down again until you hear 2 consecutive beeps.
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button.
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.
7. Select the Rebuild System Database option.

The Recovery Menu supports the following options:

Restart System: Restarts the PS3 System.
Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the Operating System for the PS3 (doesn't delete anything).
Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
System Update: Updates the PS3 firmware to current version.
