Are you an eligible person to play the Roblox games? I am not raising any objection, but Roblox does. If knowingly or unknowingly you are violating any terms and conditions of Roblox, then you may be exempted from certain features, or possibly this code error may appear on your screen-Got it? No? Read below!

When it comes to Error Code 103, there can be several causes for this issue. Let’s check them out.

Child Account: There are many game modes in Roblox that don’t allow kids below thirteen years to play the game. Thus, if you set your date of birth under thirteen years in your game account, it can lead to the “Error Code 103” issue on Roblox.

NAT issue: NAT refers to Network Address Translation. If you are using multiple devices, your router needs NAT to identify multiple local private addresses and convert them into a single IP address before transferring information. You might face this issue if your port settings are faulty, which can lead to “Error Code 103” on Roblox.

Corrupted files: Another major cause of “Error Code 103” on Roblox is corrupted game files. Your device stores some temporary game files to load the game efficiently. But, these game files may get damaged due to some glitch which can lead to an error issue.

Blocked content: If your privacy settings are not open to everyone, you may face the “Error Code 103” issue on Roblox. This is because some games don’t allow you to join the game if your privacy settings are not public. Therefore, it is very necessary to change your account settings to ‘public’.

The Best Possible Solutions For Error 103

When you already have an idea about the root cause of Error code 103, then you must understand what can be the possible solution. I have faced this issue multiple times, and I believe these solutions would help you to get rid of this error. The worst part is that the Roblox help center doesn’t provide any clear solution to this issue. I can say from my experience that the below steps are the best way to fix Error Code 103 on Roblox.

Change Account

Change Roblox Date of Birth

If the Date-of-birth (DOB) in your current account is under thirteen years, you need to create a new account since many games in Roblox restrict accounts under 13 years. Creating a new account is an effortless process. Just follow these simple guidelines:

  1. Go to the Roblox page and search for the Sign-up option.
  2. Move to the Sign-up page, and enter a DOB that is above 18 years.
  3. Fill in the rest of the details.
  4. Click on the Sign-up option. 
  5. Now, move to your Xbox console and log into your new account. This should solve the Error 103 issue if it is because of the DOB restriction.

Try new account settings

Xbox Live Privacy

You might also face the “Error Code 103” issue on Roblox on your child’s account, as Xbox privacy blocks content from other people. To solve this problem, follow these basic guidelines:

  1. Press the Home button on your Xbox controller.
  2. Move to settings, and go to all settings.
  3. Select the “Account” option
  4. Go to “Privacy and Online Safety” and select “Xbox Live Privacy”.
  5. Move to “View Details and Customise” and go to “Game Content”.
  6. You will find an option that allows users to see and share content with others. Change the setting from ‘block’ to ‘everybody.’

This should fix the error 103 issue if it is happening due to the privacy settings. Move to the next step if the issue still exists.

Try port forwarding

port forwarding

Port forwarding is a very simple trick to solve the “Error Code 103” issue on Roblox. While most latest routers have the port forwarding option by default, it may be disabled due to some reason or absent if the router is an older version. 

The process of port forwarding is very swift and easy. First, you need to enable UPnP ( Universal Plug and Play). UPnP enables several devices connected to a single network source to identify each other. To enable UPnP in your router settings, follow these guidelines:

  1. Open your router login page and check the UPnP in your router settings.
  2. If it’s off, turn it on and click save.
  3. If you have an old router, forward the port manually. To forward the port, go to the port forwarding menu and enter these numbers
  4. TCP: 3074
  5. UDP: 88, 500, 3074, 3544, 4500
  6. Click on save, and turn off and on your router to fix the issue.

Power Cycle Your Xbox
