Can you deactivate then reactivate a system with no damage?
6:18 pm

Hi my old time 60gb ps3 died on me and there is no way to deactivate it on the xmb…its busted…anyway I bought a new 250gb system and activated it and can not get online and get all my games and can't make purchases. My account is activated on 5 systems because I did gameshare in the past but not anymore. If I go online and deactivate all systems there. Can I reactivate my 250gb system right away with no damage at all? And how?

go to from there you can log in to your original account and deactivate all 5 of your  ps3 shares. 

Go to Account then click on Media and Devices, and it will allow you deactivate all of your links.  Just remember its 2 systems now and not 5.

The link does not work.  The only way I know of deactivating your PS3's (I have had to do this 3 times in the past few weeks) is either through your PS3, or by calling Sony.  I had the yellow light of death and had to call Sony to deactivate all of my systems and it was incredibly easy-took about 5 minutes.  


There is no damage caused by activating or deactivating systems, so you don't have to worry about anything.  Good luck!

I know that you can easily activate/deactivate/activate again with no harm done yo your PS3, just got to the XMB>online (not sure about the name, but where you log in)>account management>activate/deactivate system.

It's super easy!
