    I found this video on youtube
    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UVmuJw_IPNg&feature=sub"]YouTube - How To Check if Your XBox 360 is Console Banned | Microsoft November Ban Wave | Mattie4321[/ame]

    Here is the steps you dont need a video really its that easy.

    Follow this guide: * Unplug hard drive and/or memory unit, * Turn on 360 with ethernet cable/wireless plugged in, * Go to "system settings" in the dashboard, * Click on "Network", * Click on "Test Xbox Live Connection" * Wait for the results, if it asks you to update click CANCEL. * Click on "Y (Yellow)" to get the status report up on screen:


    If the status reports the following you ARE banned:

    W: 0000-0008
    X: 0000-F001
    Y: 00A8-6820
    Z: 8015-190D (see this = banned) If your Z: is different you are NOT banned.
    ID: 0008-0000

    Any other code in the Z: line such as "Z: 8015 - 1002" means you are NOT banned, the only code that means you are banned is "Z: 8015-190D", that is the banned code.

    If you are console banned, it will tell you that you are console banned. If your gamer tag has been banned, then it will tell you that your gamer tag has been banned.

    When I got console banned the suspended my account. After my suspension was up I tried signing in and got the invalid payment error. I called support and they told me that message means my account was banned for system tampering... I asked her why the hell doesn't it just say my account was banned? Then she got all crappy with me :rolleyes:. So if you have gotten a console ban theres a good chance they got your account as well because they are major douches.

    Actually no.

    If you are modding a game then most likely your GT will be banned with your console.
    If you only have modded firmware. Then ONLY your console gets banned.
    If you GS mod after being reset. Good chance they will ban both your GT and Console

    It depends on why you have been banned. Some are only Console bans. Some are both.

    your fine, if you were account banned, you would get a message on xbox.com

    also if you have the latest kernel on your xbox, it will tell you its banned when you try to connect to xbl

    Or you can just try connecting to xbox live and it tells you your banned. That works too.

    Yeah! This did not work for me. Never asked for an update. Displayed BANNED message right on test screen. I was in Preview Program however. Not sure if that makes a difference.

    What is this UPDATE that it says is available?
