    Don’t worry, as stated at the start of this article, there are a number of things you can try at home way before you contemplate bringing your console to us here at consoletherapy.com

    So, how do we fix an Xbox Error Code 200?

    Sign out and in again

    Ask any computer expert, and they will tell you that turning a machine off and on again can solve nearly any problem. You can put your Xbox through a hard reset by holding down the power button at the front of your console for 10 seconds, and then simply turning it back on.

    Updating Offline

    Consoles have moved on since the days of the SNES and PS1, and these days consoles rely on the internet for updates and sometimes seem unplayable without a WiFi connection. However you can still update an Xbox one without the need to connect to the internet and Xbox live.

    To see the full guidelines to this click here to see our other article.

    Use a PC to format a USB drive (must be at least 4gb) to NTFS file system.

    Download the offline system update file. Unzip and put the $systemupdate file on your drive.

    Turn on your console while holding the BIND and EJECT buttons for 15 seconds. You will hear two startup chimes. Then, the troubleshoot screen will appear.  Now release the bind and eject buttons.  Insert the USB drive into your Xbox One and select ‘offline system update’ using your controller. Your console will then manually update and restart.


    Reset Reset Reset

    From time to time, the manual update won’t fix every Xbox One facing the error code 200. If this is the case, you might need to take a bit of a different approach.

    By following the steps above, access the Troubleshoot menu and hit the ‘Reset the Xbox’ option.

    At this stage please do be careful as you will be faced with two options: one to reset everything, and the other will reset and keep your games and apps. Of course, you ideally will want to choose the later option otherwise you will lose EVERYTHING on your Xbox! If you choose any of these options you will need to sign back in to your Microsoft account so be sure to have all of your details to hand.
