Question about Sony PlayStation® 3 (80GB) Console
Netflix on playstation 3 wont let me sign in. It says invalid email or password. I know it is correct user id and password
Posted by Anonymous on
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.

Don't worry. There is a huge problem occuring right across the board at this very moment with the PSN Network. Some consoles are not synching properly due to an internal clock error and causing problems exactly like you describe. It is expected to be resolved soon by Sony.

SOURCE: please help my ps3 accepts
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

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.
