Master or Sub-Accounts "not old enough" to Play HOME? Look HERE!

199 replies 806 views Edited Jan 24, 2009

Did you get the error "cant log into HOME not old enough" on your sub account?

 

Well the problem is one of two things:

 

1. Your accounts age is set too low (below 13yrs)

 

2. If your account is old enough then your PS3 won't let you access the EULA due to your content restrictions being set to OFF for that sub account.

 

If your problem is 1. your hosed; you have to be 13 to access HOME

 

If your problem is 2. then: log in to the Master account (which controls that sub account)> go over to account settings (above the PSN Icon on the XMB)> select manage sub-accounts(you will have to enter the master account password)>pick which sub-account to change> go to the content restrictions option and set it to ON

 

Thats all you need to get into HOME...but

 

Turning the restriction to ON allows you to get into HOME but to play a M or T rated game you still need to drop the LEVEL that the Parental Restrictions are set at. To do this you need to go into Settings> Security Settings> of the master account and set the Parental Restriction level to -NONE-. Kind of redundant I know but think of it like this: the PS3 has two parental restrictions, one you turn on and off in the sub- account controls and the other you can adjust the level in the master account. After your turn the Restriction to ON you need to still drop the level to NONE...get it? Good.

 

 

Also:

 

If its your MASTER ACCOUNT that is having this error then try this fix:

 

Go to your security settings of that master account then select Parental Controls

>then put in 0000 (thats the standard code if it has not already been set)

> select lvl 11 as the control setting after you hit accept it will show a screen after that with a check box saying restrict starting a game with no parental control settings uncheck that box and select ok

>You should be all set. You can then go back in and turn the parental settings back to normal later on.

 

 

 

 

And don't forget KUDOS to AncientEvil and psxexpert for the sub-account FIX and shrapnel0 for the master-account fix!

I am telling people this because lots of people are having problems logging in when they ARE old enough due to the content restriction problem....

Why? Provide a rational argument telling why you are automatically better suited to Home than me simply because you are older.

 I'm sorry, but your info is outdated. The age is now 16+ in EU, and I think it's 13+ here in the US.
