Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Have to re-sign in and update my xbox everytime i turn it on

I just sent my xbox to get fixed and every time i turn it on. I have to sign in to my profile, even though before i sent it away to get fixed my profile would stay signed in. Also I play avi movies on my xbox, and again before I sent it in i could just plug a USB flash drive in and play the movie, but now I have to put it in, sign into xbox live, and update my xbox just to play the movie. How can I for one make it to where I don't have to sign in to my profile every time i turn it on? Also how can i keep the setttings where i can watch avi files and don't have to sign into xbox live and update my xbox every time?

    i've downloaded an update to play avi videos, but everytime i go to play the video it tells me i need the media update again, and it doesn't even download it it just plays the video. so basically i have to sign into xbox live everytime i wanna watch a video file.

You should be able to fix movie problem by making a new profile on the xbox and downloading everthing again,you'll need the media update to play the movies so just start a movie on the new profile and it will auto update.this is a licence problem and thats how i fix it. but this is the proper way click link http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/systemuse/xbox360/licensemigration/faq.htm

The xbox 360 slim i got it wants me to update something but now i got signed out of xbox live and the update doesnt wanna update and now i cant sign into xbox live.


Here's how I fixed mine. When I got the message stating that the download was unsuccessful I went into settings, then network, and I tested my network connection. During a network test it automatically logs your profile out, but when the test came back good, before it logged my profile back in, it asked me to update again. I hit "a" to accept the update and it worked this time. I think the key is that it has to attempt the update before logging your profile back in. I think the key is updating with the profile logged out, which under normal circumstances you can't do, only during a network test.

If that fix doesn't work you might try going into your network settings in the dashboard and lowering your firewall restrictions, then updating, then putting your firewall restrictions back to what they were.

When i turn the xbox 360 on it says that i have to do an update for xbox live but the update wont work


My xbox did the same thing, this is how I fixed mine. After I got the message saying the update was unsuccessful, I went to settings, and network settings. I tested the network connection and the test came back with no problems, but before my xbox signed my profile back in (your profile is automatically signed out when you do a network test) it asked me again if I wanted to update and I said yes, this time it worked without a hitch.

Graphic gone!


if it has been sent back 3 times already then phone xbox support and tell then this, they will probably offer to replace it with a new unit or give you some freebies etc and get it repaired again ;)

Unavailable Xbox live signup. >=[


I have been able to sign up today. This site was a big help: http://www.acddv.com/
Keep checking back so see when Xbox live is online and working. Then at that time quickly sign up. It worked for me and i'm on it right now! Good luck everyone!
