I got error code NP-9978-3

2 replies 2979 views Edited Sep 13, 2013

Last Friday, September 6th at around 2 or 3 PM. 

 

According to the error code I have to wait a week to try and activate a system on my account again.

 

At the moment all of my systems are not activated which includes a PS3, PSVITA and a PSP.

 

Now I've heard if I try to activate a system early the lock out timer will reset, is that true?

 

As for when I SHOULD try to activate a system again, I will have waited exactly one week today but I'm not sure what Sony means when they say "week"

 

do they mean exactly 24 hours multiplied by 7? or would it be best to try and activate it tomorrow to give myself more time? 

 

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

You already waited seven days. Why not wait one more to play it safe. That's better than waiting another seven if it does reset.
