To resolve this problem, try the following solutions.
Solution 1: Check the Xbox Live service status
If you see any alerts here, wait until the service is up and running and try again:
Solution 2: Make your purchase through a browser
If you’re experiencing this problem while making a purchase, you can work around it by making the purchase online through a browser at Xbox.com instead of through your console. Here’s how:
- Sign in to account.microsoft.com using your Microsoft account.

- Select Storage.
- Highlight but don't select a storage device, and then press the Y button on your controller for Device Options.
Note It doesn't matter which storage device you highlight. This clears the cache for all storage devices.
- On the Device Options screen, select Clear System Cache.
- When prompted to confirm storage device maintenance, select Yes.
Note You'll return to the Storage Devices screen when you've cleared the system cache. You can then press the Guide button on the controller and return to Xbox Home.
Solution 4: Power cycle your Xbox 360 console
Turn the console off and then on again to see if this resolves the issue. Here's how:
- To turn the console off, touch the power button on the front of the console. (See the green lighted buttons below.)
- To turn the console back on, touch the power button again.
