    Problem (AKA Y2KPOSPS3)

    Im having a problem with my PS3. Everytime I try to log onto PSN it just signs me out and says an error has occoured (#8001050F). I did some research on forums and all I found was that it is a defect with the PS3 and you have to call Sony, then send in your console and they will send you a new/refurbished one. Really sucks any help would be apprieciated.

    They are saying that the dates are resetting to 12/31/1999, causing some kind of conflict with trophies,etc,etc

    I wonder if a total restore to default wouldnt solve this?

    Update 1: Sony is looking into the problem and will post updates.

    Update 2: 120GB / 250GB Slim owners are reporting to be able to connet.

    Update 3: Some are speculating that this problem is because of time signature problems on the PS3 due to the PS3 processing for a leap year. It seems to be a calender bug. (Rumored)

    Update 4: Restarting the PS3 and changing the date to 2008 and below seem to be working for some.

    Update 5: This is an global problem and all SCE stations are working on a solution.

    Update 6: Trophies are now apearing but only for when you last synced them to the network.

    Update 7: Playstation Official Site is being updated while this problem is being solved. New designed site will be visble when this problem is solved (or later on today).

    Update 8: Debugged PS3's are also having this issue (Worldwide problem and not just few).

    Update 9: Systems are coming back onine and games are now playabe. Not all games but older titles are no starting to work for some users.

    Update 10: Its seems to be a hardware problem and nothing to do with firmware update. Still speculations are saying that a firmware update will be up by the end of the week (long wait!!) to solve the problem. Servers are still up and Slims are connecting so it might just be a problem with original PS3's.

    Update 11: Citing unnamed "developers and studios", British site Develop say that the issue is affecting titles currently in production for the PlayStation 3, with debug consoles - used by developers to actually make games - thrown "into a rebooting cycle, due to an endlessly-looping error message".

    Update 12: It appears that this problem is only affecting PS3 fat units. All Slim consoles seem to be working perfectly fine and can connect online. Same goes for all PSP units as well. Sony has said that the problem should be fixed by today.

    Guess I'll spend today playing the CPU in Madden while wondering if my PSN info will be alright. I'll check on my PS3 when I get home I guess.

    Well. according to the PS3 blogs I've read it says if you haven't tried your system yet and you have an "old school" one (mine's as old school as it gets, launch PS3) to NOT try it until they post updates. So I guess I am on the wait right now as well.

    Well it's definitely no fun staring at a 600 dollar paperweight at this point.

    Yes, I spent THAT much money on my PS3. Video games are an addiction. lol
