However, you first need to check that the issue isn’t on Microsoft’s end. Don’t worry we’ll show you how to check that as well.
Console gaming is usually an error-free easy way to play games and use the occasional app. However, now that modern consoles are becoming more and more like PC they are also starting to have similar issues with error messages and error codes. Thankfully there aren’t all that many yet, though they do exist. One of the most common error codes at the moment is error 0x803F7000 on Xbox consoles.
This error message can be found on the original Xbox One consoles, right through to the current model Xbox Series X and S consoles. Most of the time this error message can be fixed with a simple device restart or a router/modem restart but it can also be caused by an issue on Microsoft’s end so there are a few different things you need to check in order to figure out where the problem is coming from and how to solve it. Usually, whenever you see this error, it states that your console was unable to verify the license for the game or app.
First Check Xbox server status.
Before you go ahead and start doing all the more complicated and time-consuming checks and fixes you should check to see that there isn’t an issue with Xbox servers. Although this doesn’t happen very often it is still a possibility. You can check the Xbox Live status at support.xbox.com. If everything is fine, I would just sign out of my Xbox account and sign back in again. That should solve your problem.
Restart or power-cycle your Xbox console to fix error 0x803F7000.
