When i try to sign in to xbox live it says my profile is suspended due to payment option problem. i can then update my billing and card info but still won't let me connect? help


You must make your valid Credit Card as primary, if you still have an old card then it will not let you log in. go to xbox.com and sign in and select billing.

It is a compulsary update for your Xbox 360 system so it can support the feature you are trying to do. So you really might want to join to Xbox Live by creating an Xbox Live account and by signing in to Xbox Live, it will automatically install the latest firmware to update your system.

Xbox live sign out after 5 seconds


Call Xbox Live and make sure your account is still active. The card on the account to renew your membership could have expired!

Account Suspended for payment error


Go here:http://www.xbox.com/en-US/live/
And try logging in there, if you can't login go Here : http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/?WT.svl=nav
That will troubleshoot your xbox live connection from the pc.
you can also pay your subscription fee online too.
