error code E-80551071 - cannot buy PSN content

Hi,

 

I am trying to buy Oddworld for PS Vita, but cannot do so, as everytime I confirm purchase, I get the error code 80551071. Is this something to do with the recent PSN maintenance? Or is it something to do with the new router I've just installed (BT homehub 3.0), though can't see why this would be a problem, as I can still play online through psn etc.

 

This is driving me mad!

Hi guys,

 

I believe this error code is simply an indication the funding attempt has failed (which could be for a number of different reasons).

 

In this instance, you can attempt to fund your wallet via the alternative method on the PC. On the website http://www.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com you can sign in and choose to fund the wallet (also via PayPal).

 

If this still does not work I would advise to contact PlayStation Support for the Network Team to check why this is not working.

Hi jinkers,

 

Are you able to download demos of other games of the store without issues?

Yes. Just tested it by downloading samurai beatdown. When I try and add funds I also get an error: NP-8132-4. I've never had these problems before and have downloaded loads of games from psn in the past.

Hi jinkers,

 

I will raise this from our side and find out why you are still receiving the maintenance message.

I was having the same issue after creditcard expiration. I checked the Automatic billing option and found it had been turned off.. Turned it back on - problem solved.

I have the same problem.  Tried 3 completely valid credit cards / information.  Called credit card companies - everything okay / not blocked on their side.  Something broken on Sony side.  Disppointed and disgusted and horrified.

Horrified?

 

Give Customer Support an email or phone call and see if they are able to check your account for any transaction barring on it.

The German Support Hotline just told me, that it seems to be a Problem with the Credit-Card verification trough an external company, that is beeing used to authenticate all creditcards worldwide. My Card is valid and according to Visa the amount of 50€ should be no problem to be chared. So it is still not possible for me to pay with my visa, but PayPal worked perfektly.
