psn account lost

11 Replies 4,923 Views Created 30-01-2010

i had to restore my ps3 to default settings, in order for it to not screw up. when i went to recover my account "CantTouchChris" who had used for all my games and had progressed with, it the ps3 was telling me i typed my account sign in id and password incorrectly. so, i typed them in again, checking they were correct and still the message came up. it looks as if the psn network has reset my sign in details. surely, this is retarded. is there any way of recovering account? if not i am royally *****. Thanks.

Re: psn account lost

# Log out of the PLAYSTATION® Network.

 

# Try to log back in using the "Sign-In" button located underneath the Friends section on the XMB.

 

# Scroll down and click, "Forgot your password?"

 

# A new screen should open and enter the date of birth you used to sign up for the PLAYSTATION® Network.

 

# Once that is complete, you will be prompted to enter the answer to your security question you picked during registration for the PLAYSTATION® Network. This answer is CAPS specific so if your answer is actually "PlayStation" and you enter "playstation" it will not work. Also, make sure that when you enter the answer an extra space is not added to the answer.

 

# After this, you should be able to enter a new password and log back on. Make sure you write down your password this time so you don't have to do it again! :]

Re: psn account lost

try using that email/pass to log into these forums...? see if that works? Otherwise all i can suggest is to call customer support and ask them to help you out.

If you'd looked in the top right of the site then it'd show you. 

If it's not then that's slightly concerning...

 

Also, nice job on the thread necromancy! :Thumbs:
