It might be frustrating at times when you can't join any Roblox games using your console probably due to error codes 6, 106, 110, 116, 279, 529, 610 among others. However, we are going to focus on error code 103 today. To be specific it is always a message that reads, "The Roblox game you are trying to join is currently not available (Error Code: 103)".

Part 1. Roblox Error Code 103: What Causes It

Roblox XBOX Error Code 103 is unique to Xbox one users and it often appears when a person is trying to join any game on Roblox. Unfortunately, there is no single reason behind the Roblox Error Code 103.

However, it mainly occurs when the content of the game is not deemed suitable for younger players. This is why the error code is commonly referred to as an "age restriction error". Below, are 5 reasons behind the Roblox Error Code 103.

  • Issues related to the date oaf birth: Xbox One has an extra privacy policy when it comes to children's accounts. Furthermore, Microsoft is always cautious when it comes to protecting children against inappropriate material or content online. For instance, if you are using an account on your PC created with a DOB under 13, then you might be limited from accessing the user-created world.

  • Disabled "Content from other users": Well, this will not come as a surprise especially when you are using a child's account below 13 years. There is a great chance that the "Content from other people" is blocked from your account.

  • Issues related to NAT: This issue arises when the router or ports used by Roblox are not being channeled correctly.

  • Firmware glitch: This occurs when some Xbox files are being temporarily used by Operating System.

  • Poor game installation: This is a problem that occurs when the game installs incorrectly.

Fix 3. Changing Router Settings (Turning on UPnP)

Since Roblox is a multiplayer-based game, it heavily relies on NAT to work properly. If all the other fixes have failed to work, then you should consider checking if the ports used by Roblox are working properly. You need to consider the following quick steps;

  • Open the page to your Wifi router page. Now log in.

  • To find the UPnP (NAT forwarding), go to your router settings.

  • Enable it to fix this problem. Also, you can manually forward the ports to fix the Error code.

Fix 4. Restart / Performing a Hard Reset

It is important to understand that firmware glitches are a result of updates that are automatically distributed after the game is launched. I would suggest signing out and signing in. If the problem persists, then you will have to take the long shot and restart your xBox. Use the following steps;

  • Sign out from Roblox. Close the game and any other application that might be running on your device.

  • Press and hold the Xbox button in the centre of your Xbox controller to open the Power Centre.

  • On the pop-up menu, choose restart.

Fix 5. Lastly, Reinstall Roblox

The essence of the process is to overwrite the copy of the program that was initially installed on your xBox and replace any broken or deleted files.
