What happend to my friends list. When I loged in on my PS3 today all my friends were gone. I checked my account on my PC and they are gone as well. Even more, I send a request to 3 friends but did not get the "waiting for friend to respond" icon. Can anybody help?
That's an issue that can occur from updating your console, to having slow internet, but because it isn't showing online either I'm assuming it's your PS3 having the issue and not your connection speeds.
You could try rebuilding the database through the PS3's recovery menu. It might not change anything but I've seen a few posts on the net from people saying that it worked for them. It's recommended that you back up your save game files before attempting this; although you shouldn't lose any data anyway. Just a precautionary measure.. You'll need to access the PS3's recovery menu and choose to 'Rebuild Database'. To do so: 1) Turn off your PS3. 2) Press and Hold the power button down; the system will turn on. Keep holding the button until the system turns off. Once the system is off then take your finger off the button. 3) Press and Hold the power button down again until you hear 2 consecutive beeps. 4) When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button. 5) You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button. 6) The Recovery menu will pop up. 7) Select the Rebuild Database option. These are the kind of videos you may want to take a look at if you want to try it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5pVJ3q_MGIM http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZLiX4j2M3o
May sound off the wall but what is your date and time set at? For some reason I think I remember someone having this issue and their date/time was way off and when they corrected it the problem went away. Can't hurt to try even if it doesn't work.
