    That code means you have a billing violation associated with your account. You need to call support for your region to clear it up.  Go to it should say what's wrong.

    That code usually means an authorization failure, billing information might not match the account or that the transaction timed out.

    If everything is up to date and matches, trying waiting 48 hours. If it was an authorization failure it'll put a time lock on the account that prevents the purchase from going in. If you try again before the lock expires, it restarts it.

    My account is in good standing, everything up to date. I don't think that error message means what you think it means.

    that status code does mean that there is a authorization failure

    Did you check with banks? I know that sometimes the when MS is trying to authorize the charges, they don't send a predetermined amount and the bank rejects it.

    Its part of an automated system, so they can't manually adjust what its trying to authorize.

    I am getting the same status code but for a different reason. I am trying to download the Youtube app and when I hit the Download Now button it switches right to the error message. Feel free to talk technical, I am very knowledgeable with tech but this problem has stumped me

    Hey Spyder - that error code means your account has a charge that hasn't fully cleared. Have you recently tried to purchase anything?
