My son and I actually just experienced this error when we tried to sign him in to Xbox live. He couldn’t even log into his profile at all, but we were able to get around the issue by removing the ethernet connection. Afterwords the Xbox still tried to sign him in but since there was no internet connection it allowed him access to his log.Microsoft Aware of Xbox Live Error 80070571 and 801540B7,
