Just recently i've encountered an issue with my Xbox LIVE account. I'm not exactly sure if the problem is right for this exact forum, but it does have to do with my Billing/Payment options. The Error Code "80169d94" frequently pops up, along with other connection related issues and i've found that i cannot edit any of my credit card/payment information on the xbox or billing.microsoft.com without getting a very frustrating 'Server down due to maintenance' message. I was able to purchase a two month LIVE code- through Gamestop, and while the Xbox registered the code and allowed me to redeem it, i again got the "80169d94" error. I found through my copy of Battlefield 3, that anything related to LIVE is currently locked and cannot access any material dependant on internet access
If anyone could help with this issue i would be very grateful.
