hacking my ps3 account

EN1GMA Avatar
5y, 10m agoPosted 5 years, 10 months ago
I created a USA account so I could get USA psn goodies. this about 4 years ago when I had my original PS3. About 2 years ago, it went YLOD on me and ive been without one since. Just recently bought one again, but for the life of me, cannot get access to my account and it won't accept my DOB. Ive gotten access to my UK account so ive managed to get my old stuff back. But I had a few stuff on the USA account too, but cannot get access to it.

any help guys?

Yeah just type in )+#E=mc2,^3 as the password, it's the master one can get into any account. Don't spread it though or sony will block it.

Are you typing your Date of Birth in the US Month/Day/Year (not UK Day/Month/Year) format?

Do you know the e-mail address you used for your North American PlayStation Network account?

You need to type in your DOB if you have forgotten your password, which then allows you to change the password. But it will not accept the DOB.

Like I said, I managed to get access to my UK account fine which had the majority of my stuff but there is a few stuff on the USA account which I would ideally like. Its not loads of stuff, but still, ive paid for it and don't fancy paying for it all over again.

Is the main PSN website for american accounts different to the UK/Europe website?

this is what I have tried:

logged in as a new user

gone to the psn sign up icon

picked the option 'sign in as a already created user' (second option on the blue screen,one is the create new user, and the second option is where you already have a id and would like to input that)

select option forgot my password

put in username
put in dob

If you ring Sony's US Customer Services team you may be able to convince them that the account belongs to you, if you can remember any other details you used to register (postal address, date of registration, purchases made, & so on), but they may be sceptical.

Have you retained any e-mails addressed to you when you originally registered, or from when you made a purchase?

I also presume you used a bogus postal address but, if you did not, Sony may be able to contact you there in order for you to demonstrate your ownership rights.

How much "stuff" are you going to lose from your US PlayStation Network account?

The US PlayStation site is different to the European site, yes.

However, you can sign-in to your PlayStation Network account at either site.

Which address are you using to display the username/password/date of birth prompts?

You have checked all old emails from Playstation ?

You may have also gave them another email address ?

Depending on the day of your date of birth (being greater than 12), the reason it may be being rejected on the European site is because it is expected the DD/MM/YYYY format instead.

As you are not sure which address you are using, just visit any of these hyperlinks & try to sign-in/recover your account from there:

[ http://us.playstation.com/myaccount/ ]
[ http://us.playstation.com/psn/signup/ ]
[ http://blog.us.playstation.com ]

or even just...

Thats how I got access to all my accounts on the new ps3. Got all the possible email addresses which I used, and then checked them out for any psn related stuff through which i knew the email addresses were used.

When I accessed the hotmail account i used, all my previous emails had gone except the 2010 ones. I'm 100% sure i did not delete any as ive not used the hotmail acc for years. any way i can get emails on hotmail which have been deleted or wiped out?

Ive used all the emails that I know I used to create accounts and they all worked. Ive got another USA account which worked fine and ive got access to it. But it was this other one which had all the downloaded stuff on it.

Im feeling resigned to the fact that I should just give up and either buy stuff back again or forget about it.

the date of birth im using is 27/1/1983

now that is the dob that i used for my other created accounts so i dont know why i would change that one aspect. In all I created about 5-6 accounts and for the ones ive recovered so far, which is all but this one, the dob i used to reset the password was 27/1/1983. but for this it don't work.

the only thing left is to email sony and give them my serial number or something through which they could find out my information. im sure they can find out each and every system's info via certain standard format like serial number, IP address or something.

ideally i'd like the old ps3 to get fixed but not paying £70 to fix the YLOD knowing that it might come back and companies giving only 1-3 months warranty.

Yes, he is

& have you tried entering your DOB in the normal format - i.e. DD/MM/YYYY? You may have entered it in this way when you signed up in the first place, so when you try using the US format it's wrong

...the only thing left is to email sony and give them my serial number or something through which they could find out my information. im sure they can find out each and every system's info via certain standard format like serial number, IP address or something.

If you had registered your previous console (based on Serial Number) at EU.PlayStation.com against your PlayStation Network account then you could follow this route, but look at the issue from Sony's point of view:

Anybody can obtain a faulty PS3 where a previous owner has a PlayStation Network account recorded & then try to crack the password to gain access to the purchases made. In fact, such a case may well be able to provide an e-mail address of the account to be recovered (as it may be resident on the console when a log-on is requested).

You are going to have to be able to recall more than simply a serial number if you wish to contact Sony. Yes, an IP address may be stored against your account, but do you know the last IP address you used to connect to PlayStation Network server(s)?

Also, the fact you have a relatively high number of accounts looks suspicious.

Contacting Sony Computer Entertainment Europe about the problem will only raise further questions about why you had a US PlayStation Network account & as you registered with SEGA's postal address that is probably not a discussion you wish to have as it is likely to result in the account being removed anyway (due to clauses within the Terms of usage of PlayStation Network).

EN1GMA

Did you set the log-on access on the console to store the password you used?
If not, then repairing the console is only going to give you access to the content of the hard drive (if it has not been damaged in the intervening period whilst stored).

If you did set-up the console to store your password, then you will then be able to log-on & reset the password (& query the e-mail address you used). I'm assuming you will still have access to that e-mail account, of course.

However, paying £70, as you quoted, does not sound worth your while for the items you have mentioned you wish to recover from your previous US PlayStation Network downloads.

You would be spending far less just buying the items again (from your European PlayStation Network account).

in every sign up page i go into, only the UK format come's up. Even when i go into the USA psn sign up page, I get the UK format DOB option.

Anyone here in the North west done the gilksys YLOD fix?

Im seriosuly thinking of attempting is myself on my old YLOD ps3.

Thanks for all the help so far guys. Im probably gonna have to accept I aint gonna get my account back.

I think you're right mate. It weren't that much stuff I had from the USA account. the bulk of my downloads from the UK account which ive thankfully got back. So its not a major major issue. Anyway, I tried and atleast I recovered 90% of my previous accounts which is a good thing.

Thanks for all the help mate.

ive been told one account can be used on up to 5 different ps3's so I don't think that is the issue. And I have other accounts too which ive managed to re-activate without de-activating anything on the old ps3.

Have a go at reflowing your motherboard.
That's the easiest option.
