Error code 8002A203

25 Replies 210,603 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?

PlayStation Network is offline for scheduled maintenance from 16:05 on Wednesday 9 March 2011 until 03:00 on Thursday 10 March 2011, GMT.

During the maintenance, you will be unable to access the following services:

PlayStation Store on PS3 and PSP.
PlayStation Network Account Management.
PlayStation Network Account Registration.
In addition, you will not be able to sign in to PlayStation Network from eu.playstation.com. If you wish to play online during the maintenance, please ensure you sign in to PSN before 16:05 on Wednesday 9 March 2011.

During this maintenance, you can continue to collect in-game trophies and these will be updated on your profile once PlayStation Network is back up and running.

If you have any questions about this down time, just post them here and we'll do our best to answer them.

Re: Error code 8002A203

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.
