Resolving Error 80010519 On The PS3 When Signing Into The PSN
I went to use my PlayStation 3 last night and 2 weird things happened. Firstly, it wouldn’t turn on by pressing the PS button on the controllers. I had to turn it on by pressing the power button on the actual console. Secondly, I couldn’t log into the PSN (PlayStation Network), no matter how many times I tried or, how many times I reset the router. I even tried resetting my password to no avail.
The error I was getting when trying to login was as follows:
An error has occured.
Pretty useful huh? Not! A quick Google on the error code provided about 3 results where this error code was being discussed but the outcome was either a dead end, or someone saying you have to send your PS3 off for repairs.
Luckily for me it didn’t come to this and I managed to solve it by following the steps below:
1. Power down you PS3.
2. Remove the power cable or turn it off at the plug for at least 10 seconds, the longer the better. Make sure it is a long period of time as I tried quickly turning the power off and on to no avail.
3. Turn the power back on and boot up the console.
4. You will be prompted for the date and time. Enter this and continue.
5. You should now be able to sign into the PSN straight away.
