"It seems that this code comes in tangent with a series of other error codes. My question is, what does this code even mean? Has any one found a description behind this code? Obviously its CODE for something right?"
On the playstation support site, all that it says is: 'The Playstation 3 is having an issue attempting to access the playstation network'. All that it says to try and fix it is to try rebooting your ps3 or signing on at a different time. Ignorant sony...
Yes I have a slim and I keep getting this error constantly and also getting the DNS error sometimes too. I have a netgear router but I don't think it's the router or modem cause my Xbox360 and both laptop and PC never have connection issues. PS3 is wired connection. Pretty frustrating. And from what I see no real solutions have been found yet.
This just started happening out of nowhere for me. I've played online flawlessly for a couple years. I find it really discouraging to see this has been a problem since December 2007, and still no one has a fix... I'm about ready to start smashing chit around th house.
whats even more stupid is they recommended that i contact my ISP (Internet Service Provider), & then my ISP, recommended i switch to a wired connection there is NO WAY i'm switching to a damn wired connection it sucks because you get slower connection speed & to keep myself safe from getting that damn error message, i usually sign-in, check my inbox, then sign-out only time i am online is when i'm hosting an online game session such as Operation Flashpoint Dragon Rising Campaign Co-op or Multiplayer but if its not one of those two things, then yeah i'm not online
After 7 months of flawless wireless connection and being able to play any and all PS3 games on the PSN...I have recieved this error.
I have done everything within my immediate power to solve this issue, and there appears to be only one solution. The final solution of giving the PS3 a bubble bath in hot, soapy water.
Here are the things I have tried so far in no particular order: (by the way...none of these help)
Contacted Sony x3 times.
Rebooted Modem, Router, and PS3 multiple times in different orders.
Restored default settings, system and network on the PS3.
Attached the PS3 directly to modem
Opened all SCEA ports on router
Tried switching from wireless to wired
Spoke to ISP about network stability (everything is ok on their end according to them)
Purchased a new router by another company. (Dynex to Belkin)
Watched and configured all equipment based on multiple YouTube and Google Video "fix its" multiple times.
Here is an interesting fact:
Sony says that this particular error has a general description of "PS3 having trouble staying connected to PSN." Wow...helpful. Thanks.
I intend to try connecting my PS3 to another network in another town at a friend's house at some point, to see if I can re-create the error.
I will post back, as soon as I get a result.
I have been having the same problem and itis really starting to piss me off. I have tried searching on the Internet but have not found a solution. I have a 250 GB slim and the problem has only started occuring since i got the updates. Now, i can't remember what exactly the update was for, but it was either a system update or a Modern Warfare 2 update...
Any new info on this problem is greatly appreciated.
How did it go....at your friends? My PS3 is now starting to have this problem too. I've done all that you've done also including disabling the media servers but no joy. If I play a game of COD I get this problem about twice per game. What's interesting is that it is booting me off their network but I'm staying connected to the internet and playing in the game.....if I was to be disconnected I would expect game play to stop but it doesn't, it carries on for about 60 secs before it kicks me out of the game totally.......weird
