Hi! Please help me. I cant connecto to psn for about 4 days. When i trie error apears "Could not connect to the server or device within the time limit (NW-5603-4)" I tried restarting PS Vita, restoring to factory settings, formated memory card, restarted and reseted router.  nothing changes. All that started when i updated PS Vita to version 2.0

Re: Cant connect to playstation network!!!

There was a thread about this problem. A lot of us experienced it.

The new v2.0 firmware messed something up.

 

Luckily another user provided us with the solution.

 

Go to your WiFi settings.

Near the bottom of the list is an option to "disconnect Wi-Fi connection automatically".

Tick that box and everything will work!

 

Strange, I know. We have no idea why it works, but it does!

Just when i thought i'd found the solution to my problems, this trick hasn't worked for me. Still getting time out errors. Any other settings people have noticed might help?

Here is how i fixed my Problem :

- Hard Reset my PS vita (Power off , Than hold down the Power button+Playstation button+R for 30 seconds to enter safe mode After this has been done , Reset your System (not the memory card) . You will be promted to Enter your Time , timezone , day , Ect. When you get to the Part where you have to SIgninto your account , say Set later than just do the "Trial account" thing , Than go to your Settings and do what the guy said ,

Go to your WiFi settings. Near the bottom of the list is an option to "disconnect Wi-Fi connection automatically". Tick that box and than restart your system. it will work
