Hello i bought an Xbox 360 from someone and i brought it home to play it and when i went to sign up for xbox live it said it was banned and i dont know why can you help me out please i would appreciate it...


You just got scammed. Many crooked sellers sell banned machines for full price, mainly because no one can really prove that it was banned before they sold it to you, unless you call microsoft. I suggest you call the seller and ask for a full refund, and also, if he/she gives you **** about it, i suggest you threaten to litigate or something if the situation is not rectified. Follow through on the threat if the person tries to call your bluff.

My xbox 360 works fine with everything else but when i go to play a game it just says open tray.....how do i fix this?


this is actually kind of hard to fix.If its under warranty they can fix it. Basically if you cant open and close it a few times and get it to work you have to replace the xbox dvd drive. But first youd have to figure out exactly what drive it has there is 4 types of dvd drive. you would have to replace it with exactly what was in there. Sometimes even if you get the same dvd drive the drive wont have the same firmware. There are things you have to do like flash the dvd drive. But if its done wrong it can result in you being banned from xbox live. As people mod there dvd drives to cheat or use pirated games on xbox live. It can even result in the console being banned and no longer being able to use xbox live. If this isnt a problem you can fix it by following the guide outlined on xbox 360 hq by clicking this link

This console has been banned for violations of the Terms of Use. To protect the Xbox LIVE service and its members, Microsoft does not provide details about console bans. There is no recourse for Terms of...


You must do the following to get access for free:

requires a virgin xbox that has not been banned (a friend's) and somewhat knowledge about computers.

Banned Xbox Live Fix - New EEPROM ' (Old Tutorial)
To get unbanned you need to purchase a new xbox EEPROM(pal or ntsc). Steps for installing it are listed below. IT WORKS. Just make sure your orginal MS info is correct and your modchip is turned off.

GETTING THE EEPROM FILE FROM THE UNBANNED XBOX

(TO INSTALL YOUR EEPROM, MAKE SURE YOU ARE USING CONFIGMAGIC FINAL* ALL OTHER VERSIONS ARE BUGGY AND WILL CAUSE PROBLEMS. ALSO, DO NOT USE THE SOFTWARE: EEPROMER)

[This is only if you want to backup your original eeprom file]

1. In EvolutionX, do the "Backup" command in the Utilities menu. It will generate files about your Xbox specs.
2. FTP in your Xbox, or use a file manager tool, and in C:Backup, you will find a file called EEPROM.BIN
3. FTP that to your PC HD or remember its location for future reference.

SETTING UP THE FILE FOR CONFIGMAGIC FOR THE BANNED XBOX:
1. Once you have Configmagic loaded onto your HD or on your PC, there will be a directory in it called DATA.
2. Move the EEPROM.BIN file, the new unbanned EEPROM you purchased, into that DATA directory, overwriting the EEPROM.BIN file that is already there.
3. If you are making a Configmagic CD, you can now make the ISO of it and burn it. Xbox HD users, don't worry.

RUNNING CONFIGMAGIC:
1. Load up Configmagic.
2. A warning screen will be shown, press "A" to bypass it.
3. When Configmagic finally loads, it will show your current EEPROM on your Xbox. Make a note of the DVD KIT ZONE and VIDEO AND XBE REGION information. "NTSC, Region 1" for US Xbox gamers "PAL, Region 4" for UK Xbox gamers
4. Select "LOAD XBOX EEPROM" in the menu.
5. Select "UNLOCK HD" in the menu.
6. Load the EEPROM.BIN file in the DATA directory by choosing "LOAD EEPROM FROM .BIN FILE"
7. If you see that the VIDEO AND XBE REGION information is different, you MUST change it. Go into the menu and choose "ON-THE-FLY EDIT EEPROM". Change the VIDEO AND XBE REGION number to the proper information of your former EEPROM.
8. Now, select "UPDATE XBOX EEPROM" in the menu.
9. Your Xbox's EEPROM will now be updated with the file in the DATA directory.10. In the menu, select "LOAD XBOX EEPROM". You will notice your EEPROM is now different! Success.
11. Select "LOCK HD" from the menu.
12. Select "EXIT CONFIGMAGIC" in the menu.

IMPORTANT TIPS:
- If you were using the XBOX DVD KIT to play DVDs, and the Xbox gives an error about region, load up Configmagic and change the DVD KIT ZONE number to the number of your previous EEPROM. UNLOCK the HD, choose "ON-THE-FLY EDIT EEPROM" in the menu and simply change the DVD KIT ZONE number. Then, UPDATE XBOX EEPROM and LOCK HD. Exit Configmagic.
- You can view any Xbox EEPROM using your PC by getting Liveinfo PC program. It will show all the details of an EEPROM.BIN file. You might find it easier to edit any possible changes to your DVD KIT ZONE or VIDEO AND XBE REGION using the program, rather ON-THE-FLY EDIT EEPROM in Configmagic.
- Sometimes, with a PAL EEPROM, your Xbox's time might be wrong or video settings will be different. Go into the MS dash and change the settings to the way you seem fit.

Special Notes:
- If you were banned with your original eeprom, once you replace your eeprom, you will need recover your account. To do this, simply select the account recovery option. Once this is done, you will need to verify some personal information in order to retrieve your account.

Problem for Microsoft Xbox 360 Console IT hAS COME CONSOLE BAND FOR VIOLATION OF THE TERMS


Hi,

this can be due to many reasons, i is if the console has been modded/flashed et,c. ( Plays Backups ) Or Violation Of Terms ( microsofts Terms ) can be viewed On Thier website. Could be abusive comments, using cheat devices ( rapid-Fire Controllers et,c et,c.
You,ll have to have a look if any of thier terms have been violated or broken. If the Console Is second Hand, then whoever you bought it Off, may have been banned previously.

Fixing my 360 that has been banned from live


XBox Live is down today June 16th, 2009. It'll be down until either late tonight or early tomorrow. There is maintenance being done on the servers.

If you tried it any other day then yesterday or today and it still won't connect then there is a good chance it's banned. Once a console is banned the only way to un-ban it would be by replacing a chip on the motherboard from a different XBox 360.

How do u copy xbox 360 games and what disc fomat to use


First off, no one here can really answer this question for you...here. I may be in the wrong but here is a site that can.

www.xbox-scene.com

Just remember that while its great to be able to backup your games, it is against the xbox tos. Not to mention game backups are not playable on xbox live. You will get banned in a heartbeat.

Xbox live


hi ppl,

Check the codes on xbox live more info panel pay particular attention to the z code. At the moment I am getting Z - 0000-0000 which is fine it just means that xbox live servers are down however if you have the codes 8015-190D I'm afraid you have been banned however don't shoot the messenger please.

We're all not connecting at the moment.
