Error code 8002A203

26 Replies 227,196 Views Created 09-03-2011

Help, I can't get onto the store or sign in. My 2 sons can sign in on theirs and I can access the internet browser on my PS3 but just won't sign in. The last time I was online was last night and haven't changed any settings since last log in. I just keep getting the 8002A203 Error Code.

Is anyone else having trouble?

It should say in the e-mail the reason why you have been banned. If you think the ban was wrong, just PM a moderator on here (english moderator) for them to maybe shed some light on exactly why you got banned.

Hmm.. saying that got me thinking. How about instead of an Error message popping up on screen, have it say "Unable to connection to the Playstation Network due to Scheduled Maintenace. Sorry for the inconvenience. The network will be back up soon" Or instead of soon, being able to time like on here. "3am Thursday 10th"

If it's possible.

Sending a message would have implied inteligence within the people that decide these things. DNAtlantics idea requires Sony to have the technology to do this, maybe they don't?

Yep. But the guy was talking about for people who don't really check the sites. I'm glad Sony added that offline/online feature on the blog and official PS site. Handy for quickly checking if you get errors when signing in. But for the people who usually go on the web to find it out.
