Video Activation

5 Replies 657 Views Created 22-07-2010

Ok...so I went to buy a movie on my ps3, and it said my account was activated to another ps3 for video...and I could not activate it and watch the movie..How would it be activated on another ps3 if I had this ps3 for 2 years and had my account on it since, and the video store just came out on July 1st.....*My first PS3 got the YLOD and they gave me a new one (2 years ago), and I have no access to that PS3 what so ever*. So if there is anyway I can figure this out..can you let me know please?

Re: Video Activation

You'll have to phone customer support.

Only one PS3 activation is allowed for video. I don't know how it thinks you have another PS3 activated.

Re: Video Activation

Same happened with me when my old ps3 got ylod. It did take about a week for sony to deactivate the old account, but I'm sure they send an email to say when its done.

Re: Video Activation

if the ps3 that had ylod was not deactivated then there is your problem u would need to contact support and see if they can somehow get your video activation back for u

Re: Video Activation

hey hey

 

Took a phone call for me and it was reset without issue.

 

 

I can confirm that we have reset your Video Download Services on your PlayStation Network account. In order to re-download your previously purchased video(s), please navigate to ‘View Downloads’ from the PlayStation Video Store.

I trust that this information is useful. Should you still require assistance I would be grateful if you would contact PlayStation Support on: 0844 736 0595 where a member of our team will be happy to help you further.
