Great PSN Outage 2011

This section was created during the downtime that started on 20/04/11 due to an "external intrusion" and thus some of us have been quite bored without it.

PSN finally returned to service on 15/05/11 in the UK, other services to be restored in phases.


  • PS3 Support FAQs
  • How do I contact Sony?
  • If you are having trouble starting up your PS3, try going into safe mode to fix the problem.

  • Backing up data:
    If you've got an external HDD and are trying to use it to backup your PS3 HDD, then it has to be formatted in FAT32. If the external HDD is formatted in NTFS, you will need to reformat it. Use this program to format the HDD to FAT32. It's very quick and reliable - all the other methods of reformatting to FAT32 that I tried failed miserably, but not this method! Credit to chernij for letting me know about this incredibly useful program.
