Is there a way to determine if your xbox has been banned from the ability to chat in game and if so is this ban permanent? Whether or not you believe me, I do not scream or swear (at least not very often) into the microphone when gaming. One day I signed in and attempted to talk in game and noticed the mic icon was not showing up (the speaker symbol which signifies you are talking) I am still able to hear everyone through the headset. I even attempted to use the kinect as a mic, but still nothing. I am able to record private messages so this makes me assume I was banned, but I'm seriously confused as to why I would have been banned. I'm not saying I never curse, but if I'm playing a rated M game, I should be able to get away with a few of the more accepted bad words without getting in trouble. Any thoughts on how to fix this?

Which of the more accepted bad words did you use?

I was going to say the mic but if it lets you record stuff I don't know.

Maybe enough people complained & you were hit with a voice suspension? No clue.

Try checking your settings, maybe you have parental controls on or your settings limit your ability to voice chat online.

Is it happening for only one game?

Also try doing a hard reset (holding the power button for 10 seconds) in case its just a temporary glitch.

Thanks for the advice. I'm at work right now, but I will attempt these fixes when I get home this evening. @MJFJD, to give you an idea, here are the non-curse word versions:

butt,
female dog,
poop

Microsoft will permanently ban you account from being able to use the chat feature?

I didn't know that.

I don't believe so. I do know they will suspend your chat for a bit.

Anything to do with cutting off the chat feature, and nothing else, is something I was unaware of. I thought if you did or said something naughty you were suspended from the entire LIVE service for a period of time, not piecemeal bits of it.
