I've noticed this as well. It's extremely annoying that my account was the only one reactivated before the service was disabled, so none of the other accounts on my PS3 are able to log on. Sony wants to do right by their customers, yet there's probably still a very sizeable amount who can't even log on to PSN at all. This is jacked up.

HOW TO CHANGE PSN PASSWORD EVEN THO THE SITE IS UNDER MAINTENANCE...

go to Qriocity.com

click forgot my password

type in your psn email, enter date of birth confirm

check your email and click email link follow prompts and your done

I did it and i then logged into psn with changed password and psn logged in on my PS3...

NOTE: it might fail a couple of times in the steps keep trying after a minute...

I found this info out from someone else and decided to pass it on because I was pulling my hair out for days trying to change my password...

I have a similar probIem. I changed my password when prompted last week or so, but it won't let me sign into PSN on my PSP.  It says that i can't sign in using another usr's sign-in.  However, this is my MY email and sign-in ID and my only one.  What is this problem?

If your password is invalid I would call Sony support and ask them when it was reset. The security is VERY low for some people to have it reset if you never changed your email address after the breach. Check your bank/credit card statement and make sure its ok also. Sony can tell you if someone called and had it requested but they will deney any security issues.
