"You cannot sign into someone elses Sign in ID (E-Mail Address)

9 replies 12132 views Edited Jun 28, 2010

Hello,

Recently my Ps3 got the Yellow light of death (YLOD), So i decided to buy a new 120 GB PS3, After starting up my PS3 i decided to go online. When i tried to log in a message poped up on my screen saying "You cannot sign into someone elses Sign in ID (E-Mail Address)", So i thought I was hacked, After making a new Playstation Network Account i decided to forget about my old account and play with this account but then again the same message came up...

I realised i wernt hacked and that my account did not get banned because a diffrent message would of came up. I tried to make millions of accounts but the same message will pop up, So I decided not to log in on my ps3 and I decided to ask you guys how i can fix this. Some please tell me how I can fix this, I miss my Modern Warefare 2

 

Please Reply ASAP (As Soon As Possible)

Thanks.

you said you bought it from Gamestop? possibly a account was pre-made on there just delete the account and make a new one, then recover your PSN ID. Should work fine after that

okay... so what ur going to want to do is. 

 

-put all the game saves on a flash drive. 

-delete the user (the user that u click when u turn on the playstation)

-make a new user

-copy ur game saves back on to the new user

-sign in.

 basically it doesnt let u sign into 2 accounts on the same user.

if u dont want to do all this u can just have a user for story/campagn mode for ur games and a user for online.

Hi,

 

Once you sign in (or sign up) a Playstation Network account to a PS3 user, you cannot switch it. For example, my PS3 user "Ryan" has "igniteryan" as it's PSN id. If I wanted to change it, I'd have to make a new user.

 

So what you need to do is make a new user, then go to "Sign Up for Playstation Network". Choose "Use Existing Account" and enter in your account details.

 

Hope this works for you

if you want to change the local name of the user just click on the user then click information and it'll let you change your local name.
