Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

After the update my PSN password doesn't work even though I have changed it AND I'm typing it in properly! All my other friends are able to play online except me so I don't think it's to do with my region or nothing. Thanks in advance :)

Unfortunately, this problem may very well lie with Sony - as you may know, the PSN has been under attack recently by hackers, and Sony has been having a lot of trouble getting back online and working out the bugs. That said, it may be a good idea to reset your password again, in case one of the hackers was able to get access to your account. As for a solution, I would sit tight for a few days and try again periodically, I'm sure they are working hard to bring their services back online. Good luck!

Try updating skype on both machines and make sure there is enough band width to work. If you use a Mac, why not use Facetime.

As soon as i log on to my facebook account it shows error


What kind of error? Have you forgotten your password? If you are not sure whether you are typing the correct password, type it in Notepad and then copy/paste it in the password field. If that doesn't work, try logging in with a different browser (Opera, Firefox, Safari, Chrome..). If even that doesn't work, try logging from a different place, like a friend's computer. If you can't log in even that way, then you should try requesting a new password. Maybe that would sort out the issue.

Hi, i heard the psn network is back up so i did the system update and then i tryed to change my password. I forgot my password so i followed the onscreen instructions and then it said sony would send me an...


There are a lot of people who are having this problem right now, which means a lot of traffic on the network and a lot of password recovery e-mails that are being sent out. One of my roommates had to do the same thing, and it took him 3 days to receive the e-mail. Unfortunately, Sony is swamped right now, I'm sure, so I would give it a couple of days. If it doesn't come within the next couple of days, I would try Sony's helpline again, as they will probably be much less busy in a couple days.

MY PASSWORD DOESN'T WORK ON MY PS3 IT COME UP CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD SO I GO TO DO THAT AN IT COMES UP WITH A CODE 80710D36


You need to change your PSN login info on your PC. Go online to http://us.playstation.com/psn/ 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.

Unfortunately, the PSN is currently down due to "external intrusions". Sony is working around the clock to restore service to the PSN. Though there is no given timeframe, Sony said that the PSN should be back by next week.
This maintenance will eventually help improve the quality of PSN and improve its stability.
MORE INFO: Sony has updated its customers regarding the intrusion that happened on the PSN. Sony has verified that the intruder stole/got the personal information, usernames, emails, and passwords of PSN customers. However, the same cannot be said with regards to credit card information since it is stored in another part of the PSN and is highly secured/encrypted. It has also been verified by major credit card companies that no fraudulent/unauthorized activity has been caused by the PSN "break-in". A new system update would be introduced once the PSN is back up. This update would require all customers to change their passwords.
MORE UPDATES: Kaz Hirai is scheduled to announce something about the PSN outage later. This could be about the schedule on when the PSN will be back up, compensations for the downtime, and further clarifications on the situation.
