So I did a internet search and came up with the accept terms and conditions in the playstation network menu and hey presto I can now go online . Just think it was  rather poor thinking from sony as I already had to accept terms and condiditions with the 3:55 firmware update? Cany help thingking All these extras sony have been adding (tv channels vizone music e.t.c) is messing up the gamestation, I bought a ps3 to play games! Anyways hope this will help others with the same issue.

 

cheers

I found it was a system update I had to do, and agree to. 

I HOPE, as it's loading, that this will fix my issues.. can't watch Netflix that we watched just yesterday.  Gives that 8002A240 code but neither Playstation nor Netflix has anything to share about that error.  Once the update loads and I restart, I'll let you know if this helped.  Thanks for posting this = Google rocks!! :D

 

Ok - that worked, but then I had to go to Network and agree to the terms there, too.. SUCCESS!!

THANKS AGAIN! ;D

Please forgive my ignorance, but I cannot log into the Playstation Network because of the 8002A240 error. How do I accept terms and conditions if I cannot get on the network?

Go to the start menu, then hit the  [PSN] Icon, then go down and press [PlaystationHome] then sign in and it should ask you for the agreement, then select [Accept]

 

Hope this helped! :smileyhappy:

go to the main screen by hitting the button on the center of the controller, then go to playstation network next to your friends list. then click on playstation network. It will pull up a screen and ask you to accept the terms. hope this helps

thanks for those steps. That fixed it. Unbelieveable. I like how it says "you'll need to accept the terms "again".

 

Thanks again.

I am also getting this error when I go online on my PS3. I would sign in, play for about 15 minutes and then the error will hit and sign me out. I can sign in back instantly but it'll do the same thing over again.

 

I have also accepted the terms and conditions that popped up a couple of days ago when I was signing in on my PS3 and played normally afterwards so I don't know why it hits me with this error now. I heard signing in here or www.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com will give me an option to re-accept the terms and conditions but it never appeared.

 

Thanks

Sorry for double posting (I don't know how to delete my post above) but the error is now gone. It might have just been some sort of glitch. Got me worried for a second there haha :)

Thanks for this, really helped me out. I was starting to think someone had hacked my account for some reason - this reminded me of that email I got a few weeks ago and didn't really pay attention to. :P Thanks for the help!

YOU NEED TO READ THE "TERMS AND CONDITIONS"

Sony is owning you.  However, you need to make the decision to agree to their terms on your own.
