    I am getting this

    You can only deactivate your PlayStation®3 system from PlayStation®Network using your PS3™ system. You cannot deactivate it using a PSP™ (PlayStation®Portable) system or PC.

    1. On the XMB™ menu, go to PlayStation®Network and sign in to your PlayStation®Network account.
    2. Go to Account Management > System Activation > PS3™ System.
    3. Select the type of content you no longer want your PS3™ system to use.
    4. Highlight [Deactivate System] and press the X button. Your system will then be deactivated.
    5. Highlight [OK] and press the X button.

    For more information or assistance, please visit PlayStation® Support
