Can’t Sign-In to Xbox Live? How to Fix Error Code 0x87dd0004

Regardless of how insanely popular games are and how much gaming companies are doing their best to assure hours of uninterrupted playing, unpleasant moments will still occur. Xbox Live is sometimes down for the count, with significant hindrances for users while they try to sign in or download something.

The error code 0x87dd0004 is a very pesky one, as it can be difficult to get rid of if you’re not used to similar problems. But the fix is actually simple if you pay attention.

Perform a hard reset of your system

A full reboot can be the solution for many technical issues, regardless of how simple it sounds. The method is simple: hold the power button for at least 10 seconds while the system is running. The system will obviously turn off. Once you hit the button again, the system starts and displays the green start-up screen. If your problem still didn’t go away, it’s time to move on to a more difficult method.

How to deal with error code 0x87dd0004

There are several reasons why this error occurs – issues with the functionality of Xbox Live or the inability to download content from the Microsoft Store. First of all, you must check the service status for Xbox Live. If you see alerts, you’ll have to wait until the service comes back up and running, and then try again. If it didn’t work, try this:

  1. Select the My games & apps option > See all > Queue.
  2. Highlight the game or app you wish to download.
  3. If you’ll see Queued or Paused, select your desired game or app and press the Menu button, and then hit the Resume installation option.

With Xbox Series X arriving in only several months on the market, the good old Xbox One is indeed still worth using.
