PS3 Trophy Errors Getting Fixed

Back in October, complaints were being made about PSN users getting trophy errors. Users would get the error when they changed their PSN ID or password and tried to sync their trophy data. The error first started to show after firmware 2.50.

After doing so, their Trophy data becomes corrupt and running a select number of games brings up an error that notifies the user of a failure to sync Trophy data. In the worst of cases, the game forces the player to quit and “try again”, only to repeat the same message.

Affected games are WipEout HD, Burnout Paradise, LittleBigPlanet and Pain. Firmware 2.53 was released earlier this month and still didn’t fix the problem. There has been one suggested fix that is said to only work for some of the affected titles.

  • Delete your Game Data (that’s the install files for a game, NOT the Save Data).
  • Use the Backup option in the PS3’s XMB to create a full backup of your hard drive.
  • Restore your PS3 from the backup.
  • You trophies will all be gone but don’t panic – that data will be stored on Sony’s servers. Just reinstall the game, install the Trophy data and the sync should work fine. Maybe.
