This is appalling, I'm having exactly the same problem "You must sign in with the account that is linked with this PS Vita system" NP-2077-6.
I've created a sub-account for my son. The PS is linked to my account and therefore his. I'm not going to create an adult account for him as this removes the protection I want him to have (he's 8). How the hell do I get that damn machine to link to him and his account so that he can play it in safety!
I'm getting really fed with Sony. Great products, crap customer support / documention.

Hi, I'm having the same problem. I managed to unlink my master account from my sons PS Vita and it then restarted but it won't accept my son's account details even though I have a sub account set up for him. What was your solution in the end? Thanks.

I created an account on the vita using my sons age, it said he was to young and i needed a master account, no instructions about how this should be done, so created an account using my age thinking that the ability to create a sub account would then acticvate... nope.
Spent an hour looking through all menu items and the very very poor help on the subject. still dont know how to do it.. guess it must be a webdite only function.
Finally after downloading the content manager as it seemed to imply in help this is what was needed I searched the web and ended up here.
Thank providence I did, reading the problems of changing accounts and of restricted downloads (my son is a mature 15, but would have problems with Assassins Creed i bought him).
This is obviously a total fail on Sony's part, both in regard to complete lack of clear instructions on and from the device you have just bought, hiiden censorship and restricting the device to only one user.
My son will now have to be me as i am not going to spend another two hours agonising about how to change the device so its his and hitting all the problems here.
In about 2 days when it downloads the games I have bought he might actually get to play it.
Sort yourself out Sony you are better than this!

Same here. Ended up here as the vitas i got my 2 are flawed by the whole sub account. Why have a parental control when as a parent there is no control as Sony are pulling all the strings. How can i get apps such as skype for a sub account? Complete waste of money so far as there unable to interact with friends
