I did a bit of searching and all of the sites I go to say the same thing for that error code:-

8071053D - Hard boot the PS3, turn off the PS3 to stand-by, flip off the back swtich and remove the power cord. Then shut off your modem/router, for about 5 mintues, then turn the modem back up first and let it sync, then turn the router back on(if using one) and let it sync. Reconnect your power cable and flip the back swtich up again. Then make a new network connnection.

None of the sites say why you need to do this though.  So I suggest giving it a go, if it doesn't help give Sony a call and ask them what you need to do.

Ok so I had the same problem with my ps3....error code 8071053D ....everytime I tried to connect to the internet. Turns out my internet provider will only provide one MAC code unless you pay for I paid...all I had to do is give my internet provider the MAC code of my PS3 and they added it to my internet availability. within 5 minutes I could do everything with my PS3 without any error codes! I suggest that you ring your internet providers and ask them whether your internet package allows you more than one MAC code! Simples! Hope this works for everyone I know how frustrated I got when I couldn't get online!

What worked? I'm trying to buy the Black Ops first strike and i keep getting this error. Right now my ps3 is unplugged, but since i have a slim, i can't flip the power off of standby by a switch, i have to unplug it all.

The error is due to PSN being down for service from 8am PSt until 7pm PST

For those who are getting the 8002A203 error, this happened today to me too, and after searching for a while, its because the PSN network is under maintenance. Still, some people can get online, but not all. You have to wait it up until later.

This maintenance is probably because they are going to release a new firmware update tomorrow.

You know, since PSN has all of our email addresses because you have to give one to be a member, wouldn't you think that they would send a blanket email out to all of the members (automated of course) that the system is going to be down due to __________from _______am to _______ pm on _________, 2011. How GD hard is that to have some courtesy for your customers??? I know that I have been a loyal PSN user for over 3 years. I have spent money and bought software on PSN. And this is how they treat me and EVERYONE else that is affected by this service interruption.

my comment was more geared towards another old thread bumped up.. i think that mic one is still on the first page. which makes like 3 or 4 (old threads) bumped in the past 2 days. kind of ridiculous.
