    My xbox elite has been banned!

    Banned
    And i.ve never even played a backup or flashed it or anything! I got it last year from argos. Is there a chance it was a refurb and the person before had flashed it or something? I'm gutted how do i sort this out or prove anything to microsoft or argos!? The warranty is out.

    Ring Microsoft?

    Unlucky dude, ring MS.

    Only thing you can do really, doubt Argos where selling refurb consoles

    Your fiancee been flashing again behind your back? :whistling:

    Ring MS, when a product is returned to Argos it get returned to the manufacture if faulty or to the Argos Clearance stores, (google it)

    Have you got any 3rd party software installed on there ?

    Banned

    my elite isnt flashed or anything either, iv got a feeling that ms may ban mine on the off chance, like what has happened to you lumoruk


    id ring ms

    probably MS been stupid. I feel sorry for you though dude, cos the Xbox customer service is appalling. I once had a problem with my xbox receiver for windows, and they hung up on me twice, third time, I rang them up and immediadly asked for their supervisor who rang me a week later. Ringing them cost me £15 (0800 off my mobile), and I demanded a free wireless receiver, which they eventually agreed to.

    Morale of the story: Xbox CS is down down down

    Report it to the BBC!!!
    Innocent gets banned from xbox live when he has never modded it or flashed it!

    Morale of the story is don't use your mobile for 0800 numbers

    Use a phone box if you have to.

    Brilliant, remove it before it gets used

    They best not ban mine, They don't normally unban them either so you'd probably have to send yours off for a replacement.

    I'd hope for some compo as well, They normally give you a months free Live, I'd insist on at least 12months in your case.

    It could be a 1 day ban as people have left bad feedback for you, I had this done to me last year

    Well on my campus at uni, there are no phones/phoneboxes. I should have used 0800buster, but I didnt know about it back then.

    So just to reiterate, morale of the story is: Xbox CS, which are somewhere in India (like many other companies) are complete garbage

    What´s the ban message you get?
    Or just run a connection test and post the error code so we can see if its aconsole ban or something else

    Yeah this one: Status Code: Z: 8015 - 190D :thumbsup:
    But he needs to check.
    Don´t see why they would console ban a console that never was flashed.
    Unless he hacked his gamerscore, right?
    (or posed naked infront of the 360 camera while playing UNO etc etc LOL)

    OP is the one that goes around with the people who call the modders thieves so I doubt its been banned because of that :thumbsup:

    They don´t ban for no reason.
    If he really hasn´t done anything wrong himself it may well be that his console wasn´t really
    new when he bought it?
    Some people pull a quick one and buy a console, swap the innards and return it to the retailer.
    People also trade in modded consoles at shops....
    Just saying....
    And..NO recourse. That´s what it says in the ban message.

    From the xbox.com forums (you get this as a reply when you try to appeal to a ban):

    Our investigations are very thorough.

    However if you PM Tatsu24 with your consoleID and serial number we will re-verify our investigation.
    Your console ID is located in System Settings>Console Settings>System Info

    Before replying, please be sure that you:

    1. Purchased your console brand new and unopened from a reputable retailer

    2. No individual has ever handled the Xbox outside your direct physical supervision.

    3. You have thoroughly reviewed the information and FAQ located at xbox.com/en-…an/

    Please be aware that if our re-verification is correct, this could result in a permanent suspension of the Xbox LIVE accounts on this console, along with all associated licenses and gamerscore.

    There is a recourse they only say that so people dont bother and buy a new one, theres a direct email for it. I've heard stories of people getting it banned for no reason and getting it unbanned

    Yep...and do you know why people don´t bother usually?
    Because they either haven´t bought the console NEW ( and from a reputable retailer)
    or they know exactly why they got banned but try to act like they don´t even know what a modded console is.
    But once they see what MS will do if they re-verify the ban and discover that they lied, they are never heard from again.
    No email is sent when you get a console ban.They only send them for account suspensions.

    Theres a direct email address you email to get it sorted if you want me to I can post the whole details on here?

    And yeah if you actually did get banned for a reason they wont unban you i'm pretty sure they have a way of knowing mistakes do happen.

    I know who can be contacted but let´s face it.
    Do you actually KNOW anyone who falsely got banned? (like someone you know who 100% bought a BRANDNEW 360 and hasn´t modded it)
    I don´t.
    I know it happens but the number is VERY VERY SMALL and those people DO get unbanned.

    Usually it´s just teenagers crying "I didn´t do anything wrong and big bad microsoft banned me"
    but they´re FOS and know exactly what they did to deserve a ban.
