PS3 Serial Number

9 Replies 2657 Views Created 20-04-2012

Hello, my PS3 (model CECHL02 in Australia) was stolen last night. I still have the box for it and I would like to know where the serial number is on the box as it is required to help the police investigation.

 

There is a white sticker which has two codes on it on two seperate barcodes like such

 

BARCODE

P-XXXXXXXX-H

BARCODE

S01-XXXXXXX-G

Re: PS3 Serial Number

Phone sony and give them your online account details and they can lookup the serial number for your console. State is has been stolen and they can probably brick the console to prevent it being used online again. Also make sure to change you SEN password if it was stored on the console.

You will also need to give Sony the crime reference number, otherwise they won't deal with it.

On that page you can't de-activate seperate consoles, you will have to de-activate all of them, but be warned you can only do this once every 6 months.

Absolutely positive. Been many threads about it on here.

 

If you have another console which you are using at home then you will have to de-activate it then turn the console on and activate through that.

Go to Sony Online Entertainment: Sony Online Entertainment: https://account.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com/login.action then log into your account. 

 

Then go to ACCOUNT - MEDIA AND DEVICES - and you will see Video, Music and Game boxes. Just deactivate all then you should be ok. Obviously change your password and/or email afterwards.
