thanks for all the responses. i love a helpful community when asking for help! i am giving it another try in a few. what messed me up is my 12 year old son got on some homebrew while logged into the psn. he got schooled and not my awesome ps3 just turned into adult only machine lol. they have 2 others in the house to play on.
could not find the edit button for the post above to add this post. I got it working, i think it was all the other desperate PSid and ConsoleID hacks i had on the system that was conflicting with the app. i got it to work! thanks for all you guys help.
What I had to do was Quick format my system, unfortunately i did lose all the DLC but i did back up my game saves. Cranked up the PS_Unban then logged in with no prob!
