8001050F & Date Reset –
I've posted this on official ps3 community but with no luck, I hope someone here can help.
I left my PS3 (slim 250gb untouched model) with no power supply for about 2 weeks. when I tried to use it again I was getting 8001050F error when signing to PSN and each time I switched my PS3 on it asks me to re-set the date. Anyway, Games were working ok at that time on OFW 3.55. After reading on the internet it seems similar to 28 Feb calender problem of 2010. One solution which worked at that time was to open the PS3 and remove CMOS battery for some time. I did so but when turning my PS3 on I still have the same problem but now I am unable to play any game any more, getting "Registration of Trophy Information could not be completed" error 8001050. I've then updated to OFW 3.56 but still have the same problems.
hmmm...well u can try one thing...format the entire god damn thing...total system restore wid hdd format also.
Thanks. Already tried but no success.

Also tried....I am now running on a new battery but still the same shit. BTW I've tested the old one and it was perfect.
Huh, that's werid. So you've formatted the drive, replaced the cmos battery, and re-installed the firmware, right? Have you tried re-installing the firmware from recovery mode? It's a long shot, but you've done everything else. Anything beyond that would signal a hardware malfunction.
Has your ps3 ever been fully disassembled? I had a PC once where the mobo was grounding out on the case and causing an almost identical issue. It kept crashing and the time kept reseting. The cause was a screw if my memory serves me right. You could try making sure that the board isn't being grounded out anywhere. Use rubber washers on both sides of every screw, make sure no loose screw is under the mobo, etc.
EDIT: oh, and check the board, especially around the capacitors, for any discoloration or burn marks.
I've only partially dis-assembled my PS3 only to reach the battery. The board was 3 or 4 steps more of disassembly. Anyway, I will try your suggestion once I am back home and let you know.
Didn't work. Nothing seems unusual in the disassembled board.

If you haven't tried re-flashing the firmware from recovery you could try that. Otherwise you probably have a broken trace on the board. It happens when the copper cracks from temperature variations over long periods of time, mainly because $ony is cheap and doesn't use enough copper to begin with. If it's under warranty send it in, otherwise you could try a re-flow machine. Should be able to find one in your area.
why do u type sony like that always? O_O...im curious...
