Error Code 70020 - Can't pay using paypal??

I have had a paypal account for many many years.  Always use payment direct from my checking.  Tonight, suddenly, it shows that I have a debit balance of about $12, which is not possible since I have plenty of money in my account.  Now when I try to pay, I get an error code 70020 from PayPal and I cannot pay for my purchases.  Anyone have a fix for this??? Thanks

Unfortunately the error codes are so secret, PayPal won't tell us the exact cause.  It can be a problem with the system, an issue with your account, etc.  You may want to contact customer support for assistance as they can look at your account.

Before you do that, try deleting your web browser's cookies, temp files and history, then close your browser, reopen it and retry.

I had a negative balance and recieved the same error when buying something from ebay.  All I did was pay the negative balance first then I was able to make a purchase from ebay.
