View Full Version : PS3 Messaging Problems

21-09-2008, 01:06 PM
hey guys, i have an original 60gig console. *my inbox & outbox keep getting confused. *sometimes when i send a message over psn it goes into my inbox & i don't think the person i've sent it to gets it & sometimes i receive a message (comes up in top left corner) but it's nowhere to be found ?? *if i got to the persons online user name it says there are x number of unread messages but they don't exist.

the normal remedy has been to delete the entire inbox & outbox contents but this doesn't work while playing the game. *it comes up with deleting, takes ages & when finished no messages have been deleted.

has anyone else come across anything like this >>??<<

if it was a pc i'd say it was a directory problem, check the disk for dead/corrupt sectors & go from there, perhaps a reformat at worst & if the problem came up again toss the hdd.

i've got no idea how to tackle the ps3 though, considered removing the drive to perform a scan but can't be stuffed.

i'd be backing up game save files etc and possibly do a factory reset?

what do support suggesT?

Yeah i agree. I've never had this but i do have a 40gb model. Ring support or send an email.
