Error 8001050F Resolved! |

After nearly 24 hours of the PSN being down for us fatty owners, the error has been resolved and you should be able to have access to your trophies, games, themes, downloads, etc. I know this because I just tried it out, thanks to Fleakitten mentioning some folks are able to log in. My Afrika theme must have been corrupted yesterday, but it’s working good now, so chances are, corrupted Trophy data has been fixed as well, and you would not have lost any of that data.


Now all we need to hope for is that this is a permanent fix and not something temporary.

I hit the nail on the head. Sony has made the new official on the official blog:

We are aware that the internal clock functionality in the PS3 units other than the slim model, recognized the year 2010 as a leap year. Having the internal clock date change from February 29 to March 1 (both GMT), we have verified that the symptoms are now resolved and that users are able to use their PS3 normally.

Will the same happen in 2014? Guess we’ll have to wait and see, but it is definitely official now.


From the sound of it, if you tried to play any games and you got the corrupted trophy data error, you did, in fact, lose those trophies, so you will most likely have to re-attain them if you hadn’t synced in a while. Synced trophies should still be OK, but there have been some conflicting reports that it may have deleted some synced trophies, but I’m not sure if that’s entirely accurate. If you ever get that error again, don’t touch anything and contact Sony’s customer service (unless it’s universal).

    Confirmed, we’re happily back online

  • You may have to resynch some trophies if some are missing.

    You sure it’s been fixed? The official PS3 blog hasn’t mentioned anything yet. I am not saying everything has to come from them but I would think they would be the first ones to post something as important as this…

    Makes me really see how much that paid content that we bought really doesn’t belong to us. Their servers drop and good-bye paid content.

    yes its fixed, Sony is probably waiting to post about a firmware update that will fix it for future cases, but as it stands right now, it works perfectly

    EDIT: they just made it official on their blog, so you’re good

  • steffo

    It wont happen in 2012, since that actually is a leap year. Might in 2014, though, unless they slap a work around into the firmware. But it’s not an urgent thing, since it is, to all intents and purposes a non-issue for 4 years.

  • JimmyMagnum

    yeah I had already fixed that lol they should get on it soon, though, so they won’t have to deal with it later on anyway

    finally got online again and now the game (codmw2) froze up and the red light just flashes…. then i try to turn it back on and the light goes green then orange then shuts back off and the red light blinks again. can’t even get the disc out… plz tell me it’s not dead… help!

  • JimmyMagnum

    sounds like a YLOD :-/ you might have to contact Sony, but as far as your disc goes, see if pressing the eject button will get it out. You could also try letting it sit for a little bit or even hold the power button in longer to default all the settings and see if that helps

  • Trophies have not been lost, just reset the clock via internet, then restart the PS3 and play the game the trophies are missing from. They shall then reappear.

  • mark ballard

    crap, yeah the eject button produces the same result… it won’t stay on more than 1 or 2 seconds then yellow light…. i guess sony’s evil plan to upgrade everyone to the new slim is starting to work…hehehehe
