Activating and Deactivating

4 replies 1232 views Edited Jun 27, 2013

I had my ps3 serviced and now have a good ps3. Except i cannot download anything from the playstation store because my account is on two ps3's when it is actually the same system. I want to know how i can deactivate and activate the system so i can download stuff again.

It's not showing two activations on the same system. Your account must be activated on another system. A friend's maybe? It doesn't matter just use this link to deactivat.

There's also the fact that in many cases, when a PS3 system goes in for service, you don't automatically get the exact same system back.  They will sometimes just send you another system that they already have refurbished, or will replace a key component of your system such as the motherboard, which in effect, makes it a new system.
