    I'm having the same exact problem. I purchased a PS3 today and I can't sign up for PSN. I've used so many random combinations that there's no way they're all taken.

Ho can I access my psn account? I don't remember my email id or password?

If you don't remember the password you can, of course, reset it but you have to know which email address you used to setup the PSN account.

If you don't know the PSN account email address, you'll need to go to the web site on some PC with a browser and go to the account settings there to see if you can provide other information that identifies you to either let you change the email address/PSN ID or have them show you.

Not much to go on, and you'll need to do the legwork on the PSN web site outside of the PS3 console until you figure it out and then you can go to the console and sign in with the refreshed credentials.

You need to change your PSN login info on your PC. Go online to and click SIGN IN on the right hand side. Enter your PSN login info. It will tell you that you need to reset your password, and it will dispatch an email to your registered Email account. When you receive the email (it may take up to 24 hours) click the link included. You will be taken to a page to select a new PSN password. It must include one capital letter, and a combination of numbers and letters.

Change online i.d

you can't. The PSN ID is permanent. Your only recourse is to make a new ID using the name you want under a different e-mail address.
