XBOX players are faced with an error stating “Person who bought this needs to sign in” and cannot have an expected game session.
If this is the case, here are our tips on how to fix this error and get your Xbox up and running in no time.
What is the Xbox error?
It can also be known as error 0x82D40007 and occurs when your console is unable to verify content access permissions.
It mostly happens when many people are trying to access games across multiple devices in an Xbox family.
This prevents games from being downloaded or installed on different profiles.
How to Fix the Xbox Error “The person who bought this needs to sign in”
These are some of the helpful tips that might solve your problem.
1. Check the status of Xbox Live services
Open your browser to check the live status of your services.
For them all to be good they must be ‘Up and running’, if not you will get the error you are encountering.
Check if any of them are “Limited” or “Major Outage” and if they are, you’ll have to wait for Microsoft to fix the error from their side.
That should fix the error.
2. Restart your console
Restarting your console might also fix the issue.
What you need to do is hold down the power button, which is the Xbox logo on your console, for 10 seconds.
Once it turns off, unplug it and after a minute or two turn it back on.
3. Reboot your router
Locate your power switch on your router and turn it off for 30 seconds.
After that time, turn it back on, give it time to restart, and after sorting, check if you still get this error on your Xbox.
4. Log out of your profile and log back in
Open the “Guide” and select “Sign in” and then “Switch profile”.
Sign out of your profile, and then press the Xbox button on your controller to sign in again.
Sign in again and your problem might be solved.
5. Set your console as a home console
If none of the above helped, we have another tip you can try.
Sign in to the account that has the gaming license for the game you want to play, unless you are already signed in.
Press the Xbox button and open Guide, then select System.
Go to Settings, then select My Home Xbox.
Select “Make this my home Xbox” and then sign in with the account that caused the error.
We hope these tips have helped resolve your issue and get you moving on with your Xbox session.
