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 to fix a banned console xbox 360 please help my xbox 360 console is banned from xbox live help

You can't. Device bans are not issued lightly, and occur when a particular Xbox console or Xbox on Windows device is used to violate the Code of Conduct in an egregious or repeated manner. Once a device ban occurs, NO account can connect to the Xbox Live service from the affected device. Given the severity of this action the enforcement team takes each device ban extremely seriously, and only takes action after a lengthy investigation.

I got banned from playing online using moded xbox 360, then I fixed it using updated 'thing'.. then my xbox is now in 'not banned' state..if i play online again, will it be banned again?...

From what I have come to understand with modding xbox's and getting band, is that the profile gets banned from xbox live and can no longer be used to play online. On that note, your xbox also has serial numbers that are burned into the hardware components, which once have been branded as "banned" can not be undone. If you choose to get back onto xbox live with that xbox, you can, but you are most likely not going to get very far!

Can't play my xbox online. Already have 3 month membership. It keeps reading but I can't play games with other people online.

So you have a 3month live membership and are positive you still have Xbox live but cant seem to play with anyone online.
This can only be because you have either been banned from Xbox live for what ever reason or you simply ran out of your 3 months

Older games wont work in xbox 360

Your xbox games? Going online with the console may fix the problem there also is a way to patch the iso to make the games work on the xbox360. This requires backing them up to your computer and saving them to a iso file then patching it with the patcher. The patcher can be found online its called from_xbox_to_xbox360.rar It teaches everything there is about getting your backup to play on xbox 360. I'm unsure if this patcher requires your xbox 360 to be modded. If you mod your xbox 360 you could get banned from xbox.

Best possible solution is to see if you can get an update for the game you are trying to play through xbox live. Some games will play if they are compatible.

My xbox 360 works fine with everything else but when i go to play a game it just says open 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

What know?

Gamers with modified Xbox 360 consoles are getting a nasty surprise: their consoles are being blocked from accessing Microsoft's Xbox Live service.

Get a new xbox 360 and then maybe.
