Roblox Error Code 103

Solved: Roblox Error Code 103

If there’s one game that stands toe to toe with the giant Minecraft, it’s Roblox, a game that attracts a similar player base. However, errors and crashes are one of the norms in Roblox, which has plagued the 16-year-old game ever since its release. One of them is Error Code 103, and the funny thing about this error is that it mainly affects Xbox One players.

Well, talk about lazy developers that won’t improve the code for the consoles. Anyways, if you’ve come across Error Code 103 in Roblox on your Xbox One, and you’re now looking for a possible fix for the error that’s getting under your skin, then you’re at the right place!

What is Error Code 103 In Roblox

The error code in Roblox reads, “The Roblox game you are trying to join is not currently available. Error Code: 103”. This happens when you're attempting to open up a game in Roblox on the mentioned Xbox console. Now various causes ultimately trigger Error Code 103. We’ve listed them below:

1. Age Restriction

As a game that’s aimed at a younger player base, Roblox strictly prohibits players that do not meet the minimum age requirement for a particular game in Roblox. As such, you’ll commonly come across Error Code 103 if you’re trying to access a game in Roblox that’s a tad bit out of your age range.

2. Parent Control

Parents have added an extra layer of security, preventing players with a child account from accessing other people’s content. You’ll likely face Error Code 103 if you’re on a child account while trying to open up user-created content on Roblox that is blocked by your parent account. 

3. NAT Issue

Another reason for Error 103 in Roblox is NAT issues. As an online multiplayer, Roblox uses NAT (Network Address Translation) settings, and chances are that the port settings used by Roblox are not forwarded correctly.

4. Firmware Glitches

Temporary data is stored on your console’s RAM. Your console may sometimes store corrupted temp files, and what’s more, it may even confuse the temp files for the original games, thus leading to Error Code 103.

5. Bad Game installation

Another common cause that triggers Error Code 103 is when the game is not installed correctly. This happens when either the game hasn’t been properly installed or if you’ve downloaded it from an unofficial third-party website.

How to Fix Roblox Error Code 103

Now that the root causes for Error Code 103 have been identified let’s take a look at some fixes. We’ve provided detailed solutions to the error at hand below:

1. Create A New Account

It’s not the first time we’ve faked our age online, and it won’t hurt to also do it for Roblox. When creating your Roblox account, you’ve probably set your DOB to less than 13 years. As such, most content on Roblox won’t be accessible. You can bypass this by creating another account on Roblox where your DOB is above 13, preferably 18.

You can do that by heading on over to Roblox's sign-up page. You’ll be prompted to enter your details. You can fill in the rest however you want, but just make sure to enter your Birthday above 18 years of age. With this done, login into Roblox using your new account and try accessing the game that would display the Error. If the issue persists, head on over to the next fix.

2. Enable “Content From Other People”

If you’re facing Error Code 103 on a child account, this fix is for you. You’ll meet this error while accessing blocked content, and if you have access to the parent account, then you’re in luck, as this can be resolved with ease by going through the following steps:

  1. Log in to your Xbox console using the parent account.
  2. Press the Xbox button and open Settings.
  3. On the Account tab, select Privacy & online safety.
  4. If a password is prompted, enter it and then click on Xbox Live privacy.
  5. After that, ensure that Adult defaults are checked and below it is View details & customization, so click on it.
  6. Move down to Game content, and click on it.
  7. After that, every option you see should be set to Allow, Everybody, or Everyone on the internet wherever possible.
  8. Restart your console.

This should resolve the blocked content that was giving the Error Code 103 glitch; if not, it’s likely another issue.

3. Use UPnP

Using UPnP in your network settings is an excellent fix for NAT issues, which might be the culprit behind Error Code 103. UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) is a feature found in every router nowadays that allows you to conveniently connect other devices to the router, like the Xbox console mentioned earlier.

If you’re wondering how to enable the UPnP feature, you’ll have to bypass your router login page. This is different for every manufacturer, but on the backside of your router, you’ll see an IP address used to access the router login page. Likewise, the login details are also given behind it. After that, enable the UPnP feature, which can be found under Forwarding.

4. Power Cycling Procedure

This is a fix for the Firmware Glitches. The power-cycling procedure will refresh your console’s system cache, and any temp files that were messing with your Roblox will be deleted. In addition, this also clears your power capacitor and fixes issues related to firmware, which is a plus. Here’s how to power cycle your Xbone:

  1. Make sure your Xbox is not in sleep mode.
  2. Hold the power button for roughly 15 seconds until the LED and fans turn off.
  3. Now unplug the power cords from the console and the wall socket.
  4. Wait for at least 1 minute before you restart the console again.
  5. Try playing the game that shows the error code on Roblox after the Reboot.

5. Reinstalling The Game

If nothing works, the last best thing that’s left to do is to reinstall the game. It’s simple: uninstall the game alongside any add-ons and updates, then download it again.

  1. Press the Xbox Button on your controller.
  2. Select Games & apps.
  3. Using your D-pad, navigate to Roblox, and delete it by pressing the Xbox button.
  4. Once the game is uninstalled, reinstall it like you would normally do.
  5. Once you’ve reinstalled it, try accessing the game server that showed the blue error screen.

Does The Error Code 103 Appear On Roblox PC

Error Code 103 in Roblox seldom makes an appearance on PC. However, you can never be too sure, for If it occurs, the only fix would be creating another account, tinkering with the NAT settings, or reinstalling the game.

Final Thoughts

We hope that the given solutions will resolve the irritating Error Code 103 that’s taking the fun out of Roblox. If the error persists despite our fixes, there is only one possible explanation: the game server you're attempting to access in Roblox was created on a PC and is only available to PC and Mobile users. Alas, there’s nothing we can do about this other than to contact the person who made the server.
