You aren't alone.

Xbox confirmed Xbox Live is experiencing a number of issues and has essentially crashed as of May 6 at 2 p.m. EST.

The issue seems to be having an additional ripple effect, as people are being told they can't sign into their Xbox because they aren't the person who bought it.

Some common error messages include:

  • Xbox error 0x803F9006
  • Xbox error 0x87DE2729

And it seems they relate to the same issue.

Normally, the Xbox the person who bought this needs to sign in error fix involves changing which Xbox system is registered as your home system.

To do that, follow these steps:

  • Press the Xbox button to open the system guide
  • Choose Profile and System
  • Pick Settings
  • Select General, then Personalization
  • Then choose My Home Xbox
  • Choose "Make This My Home Xbox"
