1. Check Xbox Live services status

Open your browser to check the live status of your services.

For them to be all good, they must be ‘Up and running’, if not, you get the error that you’re encountering.

Check whether any of them are ‘Limited’ or at ‘Major Outage’ and if they are, then you will have to wait for Microsoft to fix the error from their end.

That should fix the error.

2. Restart your console

Restarting your console might fix the problem too.

What you have to do is press the power button, which is the Xbox logo on your console for 10 seconds.

Once it turns off, disconnect it from the power outlet and then turn it back on after a minute or two.

3. Restart your router

Find your power button on your router and turn it off for 30 seconds.

After that amount of time, turn it on again, give it time to reboot and once it’s sorted, check whether you still have this error coming up on your Xbox.

4. Log out and back in to your profile

Open the ‘Guide’ and select ‘Sign in’ and then ‘Switch profile’.

Log out of your profile and then press the Xbox button on your controller to ‘Sign in’ again.

Log in again and your problem might be sorted.

5. Set your console as home console

If none of the above helped, then we have one more tip that you can try.

Sign in to the account that has the gaming licence for the game you want to play, unless you’re already signed into it.

Press the Xbox button and open ‘Guide’ and then choose ‘System.
