How to fix Xbox Sign In error 0x800c000b

  1. Check Xbox Live services status report
  2. Power cycle the console
  3. Check the connection

1: Check Xbox Live services status report

First, make sure that Xbox Live Services are up and running. Due to maintenance or a temporary server error, the services might be down and thus you’ll be unable to access your Xbox Live account or use the online-based features. Also, this is the most common reason why the sign-in errors occur in the first place.

Most of the problems with any Xbox console, starting with Xbox to Xbox One, are resolved with the simple reboot. Hard reset or power cycle of the console usually fixes all kinds of system halts. There are rarely some complex reasons behind the sign-in error like this one, so resetting the console should help in most occasions.

Follow these steps to Power Cycle the console:
