Having owned my PS3 now for about 2 years, just recently. when trying to sign in on PSN I've received the above message. Can anyone enlighten me as to why I can't sign in using my own e-mail address on my own PS3? And how else can I sign in?
Thanks in advance.

It's only my kids that use it and they don't have accounts. Unless the wife has signed me in on her settings. I'll check.

Nope, that's not done it. I've even checked our other PS3 upstairs and I'm not signed in anywhere.
Make sure your local account (the one under 'Users' on the XMB) is the one you used to create your PSN account.
What you have probably done is logged on to your local account, then used a different email address to attempt to sign in than the one which was registered to that local account.

All I can think of then, is to sign into another local username (your wife) and delete your usename. Then, create a local user using the same name you had. Then go to the PSN Network and choose "Sign in using existing existing account".
This should work mate.
EDIT: Or what MB said while I was posting this!
