PS3-, error connecting to Playstation network

Hi, I haven't ever been able to use Spotify on my fat PS3 as I get the Spotify logo and Error Connecting to PlayStation Network, please try again later. Reinstalling hasn't helped. I'm definitely signed into PSN. Any ideas?

Try opening your mobile app of Spotify, start player track and click on the song title at the bottom and click the speaker in bottom right and select ps3

Worked for me.

(all to be done when it says error connecting)

I had the same issue. This occurs when you are already logged into the Playstation Network. It seems like Spotify tries to log you into PSN when you are already logged in.

Try signing out of PSN, then open the Spotify app on your PS3. Spotify will then request you to sign in to PSN.

This is by no means a resolution, merely a work-around until this is resolved.

Then all of a sudden it started working all right. No cell phone spotify usage or anything, it just started working.

Have tried two days and it just doesn't act up anymore. Worth testing again for all you others with issues.

FINALLY A SOLUTION WAS FOUND!

 

In this Spotify support documentation you can read:

  

Note: If you created your Spotify account with Facebook, you can use Spotify on PlayStation® via Spotify Connect

That's why the solutions here say to use the smartphone app to launch the PS3 app.

You probably created your Spotify account with Facebook and this is the source of the error.

But I had problems with Spotify Connect too, so that's what I did:

- go to my spotify account and set a password to login with username and password

- go to my facebook.com, go to app settings, remove spotify app.

- go here and unlink PSN and Spotify

- launch the Spotify app on the PS3, and then do login with username and password.

 

 

Got it! Thanks Sony, Facebook and Spotify for this amazing experience...

I am having the same issue, spoke with Sony's support and tried to restore the file system to no avail. they have confirmed that the issue is not with them since their server works fine I can log into PSN, store, netflix, youture, etc) so it seems this is an issue with spotify's server. Really hope for an answer as this is very annoying

have you ever managed to login on your ps3 though? I haven't so my phone doesn't show the ps3 as an option for where play (only shows my phone and 2 computers)

So i reset my modem and router and it allowed me to connect (I had already connected my account online through PSN so it logged in automatically). However, after working once, I still get the same error. I can do as benharvey1985 said and start music through my phone and then connect to the PS3, but it's an issue when I am not home and others want to listen to music.

I have found once you've connected manually using your phone the Spotify on the ps3 will automatically log in any time it is started after that.

don't know if may be useful to know, but for me it's a random issue... sometimes simply it doesn't want to connect to the PSN (but obviously I am connected to it!)...

I found that inexplicably spotify on my ps3 works well only in the morning, while every problems I got appear only after 12 p.m.

do you have the same problems connecting spotify and PSN in the morning?
