How do I activate/deactivate my console(s) if I don't have access to them, or want to use a PC?

Deactivating All Consoles
- Log-in to your PSN account at https://account.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com/login.action
- Click on the Account tab on the top of the screen and then choose Media and Devices on the left side.
- Four boxes will appear on the right: one for Video, Game, Music and Comics. Click on the V symbol in the Game box and then choose Deactivate All.
- Click Yes to confirm deactivation.
Note: Once you have performed this deactivation you will be unable to repeat it for 6 months.
Using this method will deactivate every system. You will need to reactivate the ones you are currently using. The new activation policy only affects new downloads from now on. Anything you've purchased before the policy went into effct still retains the 5 activation limit.
This made me soooo happy. It's a nice compromise. For people that have went through numorous systems due to the ylod, it's nice to get those activations back.
My Ps Vita had a cracked screen so I took it back to Gamestop and used my warranty to replace my Ps Vita Then I deactivated all using my new Ps Vita but can't activate my video content got really upset but can play my games again.
Video cannot be deactivated online this way, the only way to deactivate video is to contact Sony, and ask them to deactivate Video. (also note you shouldn't of bumped a 4 year old thread.)
