Re: Banned from PSN???!!!
First of all You did think of connecting to your account on any of the other consoles didn’t you? Or disabling the system activation on any of them? Try setting up a new account with a different email address etc. to see if it is possible to sign in with another account on that hardware? These would be the first things i would do!
What did Sony say when you contacted them? The contact number should be in the back of the operators manual that came with the console.
The error code 8002a227 is irrelevant no matter what you are told, it doesn’t necessarily mean you are banned, it just means you were unable to connect to the PSN network. I have had this code a number of times, mainly when COD:MW2 was released!
The downloading of movies would not interfere with your PSN account, it may cause lag but they are not to know that its not a bad connection!
Account sharing is also not a cause, you are only allowed 5 accounts it is not possible to register any more accounts than that. Therefore Sony are allowing gamesharing with 5 consoles (pending change to 3 consoles although this will not affect those that have already set up there accounts on 5 consoles)
Abusive/Insulting/Threatening behaviour will however get you banned and depending how serious it is, this could be indefinite. Voice Chats can not be logged until a complaint is received from another account holder, Text chats are retrievable. A complaint would have had to have been made against you in order for this to happen.
Modding/ Chipping a console to cheat online is also a banning offense#
In any case that you are banned you are normally given a warning beforehand through your registered email account, you will not just get banned and not be told otherwise!
Buying a new PS3 will not allow you to add a banned account in any case so contacting Sony would be your only means of getting this ban overturned if you were in fact banned.
Best of luck
