Roblox is very popular thanks to its multi-platform release. Such as Windows, Xbox, Mac, and Mobiles. Because of various platforms, it is prone to many crashes and glitches. This guide will explain how to fix Roblox error code 901.

The Roblox error code 901 is pretty standard on Xbox, which means that the server is either in maintenance or the device is having trouble connecting to the game server.

Ways to Fix Roblox Error Code 901

There are multiple steps in fixing the error code 901. Here we will explain them in detail, such as resetting your Xbox console and checking if the game servers are down.

Internet Connectivity

One of the first things you should always do whenever you encounter a network error is to check if you are connected to the internet.

To check your network connection. Press the Xbox button on your controller and select settings on the menu. And press on the network settings. Here you can see if you are connected to the internet and your connection type. It is best if you are connected by Ethernet.

If your device is connected to the internet, and you are still getting the error code 901, to fix that, you should check the Roblox server status.

Roblox Server Status

To check the current status of Roblox servers, head to the Roblox server website, which lists everything as operational or under maintenance. Check for your device. If it says down or in maintenance, then you should wait a little while and check back again.

If it says operational, then your device is malfunctioning, and you should restart your console to get rid of any temporary errors caused by corrupted files.

Restart Console

Restarting your Xbox one console is very easy and often removes temporary corrupted files. To do that, follow these steps.

  1. Make sure your console is fully booted (not in hibernation).
  2. Press and hold the Xbox button (on your console) for about 15 seconds.
  3. After your console is fully shut down, you have to wait for at least a minute so that everything can properly shut down.
  4. After waiting for a minute, turn your console back on by pressing the power button.
  5. Note: If you notice that the startup animation is taking longer than usual (the one that lasts over 5 seconds), then that means the cycle was complete.
  6. Now you should open Roblox, and the error 103 will be gone.
