This is because the Xbox has been modified and Microsoft detected it, thus the ban. Modifying an Xbox 360 console “violates” the service’s “terms of use” and would result in a player being disconnected from playing Live forever. It has equipped the Xbox 360 with Digital Rights Management (DRM) technologies to detect pirated software.

However, the ban does not stop the Xbox from working, but only affects a gamer’s Xbox Live account. XBOX has banned the serial number to your xbox and that particular box will never be compatible with live again. The only solution if you want to play live is to have a new xbox and never mode it.

Unfortunately this means that your xbox 360 is "bricked" or unable to work due to corrupt software. You need to contact Microsoft (xbox section) and they should be able to replace it for you.

When using my x-box the msg cant sign into messanger keeps appearing what can i do to resolve this

Hi Stephen!

When your Xbox 360 signs you into Xbox Live, it automatically attempts to sign you into Live Messenger, as they use the same communications systems since Microsoft bought MSN.

To resolve this error message popping up every time you sign in:
  1. Sign into Xbox Live,
  2. In the Xbox Dashboard, scroll over to your Gamer profile,
  3. Find the "Auto Sign-In" tab,
  4. Under "Windows Live Messenger", check "Disable".
Hope this helps!
