I have searched everywhere and posted in the xbox live thread with no answer. I tried everything that was suggested and nothing worked. I was banned from Live so I changed my EEprom and hard drive but now when I try to connect I get the "xbox cannot connect" error.
Here are my codes
W 0000 - 000B
X:00c2 - 03C0
Y:00C2 - 03C0
Z: 0000 - 0000
l: 0 MS (0 MS)
I never edited my eeproms or did anything but flash them. I tried the video switching thing even though I never switched my video and it did not work. I loaded the eeprom using another program and same thing. I tried atleast 3 eeproms and still receive the same error.
I locked my hard drive using at least 4 different methods. Is there any solution for this problem or is my Xbox wasted?

Can someone please help? Should I purchase an eeprom? Could that solve the problem...I did use about 3 different eeproms I had from boxes that I modded and I still got the same error.

I did some quick searching and found this:
00C2 (Almost Definitely) FINAL INFO:
It is my guess (and much of the user-posted evidence supports this) that when people are using ConfigMagic to lock their HDs, they are either doing so incorrectly, or there may be an underlying problem in ConfigMagic.
If your Xbox is banned and you successfully connect to Live, you will always get a message saying that your connection is dropped because of modified hardware or software.
If you simply get the message "Xbox Live not found", then check your XYZ settings. Specifically, we're looking at row Y, the third and fourth characters. If these say "C1", "C2", "C3", or "8A" (NOT A8!), then you have a hardware mismatch problem with your EEPROM. Typically, you'll also see "AFFF" or "0000" in the first half of Z as well. This most frequently arises from people modifying their EEPROM settings so that they can play PAL software on an NTSC Xbox, or vice versa.
harrytasker points out that using the Enigmah PAL-NTSC switcher can possibly restore this:
I had same problem but i FIXED it like this:
I ran my avalaunch and looked at my Hardware settings.
It said i had PAL-1 or PAL-I whatever and behind it said: WEIRD
So i thought let's use the Enigmah PAL-NTSC switcher, so i did and select PAL, rebooted again and checked hardware again. The WEIRD word was gone so i turned off modchip, rebooted and voila i was able to connect again to the XBOX live. Dont know what went wrong but its working again
If this fails, the best way to fix this problem is to backup everything on your HD and start the HD locking/prepping procedure all over again, using your old EvoX backups (YOU DO HAVE THESE, RIGHT?), and ATAPWD/HDDUNLOCK/LiveInfo. Don't forget to copy your Live account to a memory card. Once you've completed this procedure, copy your Live account back, and try to connect to Live. You should connect successfully.
You do *not* need to replace your EEPROM because of a C1/C2/C3/8A error.
And the moral of the story? Quit mucking around with your region settings.
Well not sure how much help it may be, because you seem to point out that you tried most of these fixes. Although maybe not I highlighted a section you may want to try. I am no expert at this error though so this is the best I could do.

Saw that before and it did not work and I did not make any changes to my eeproms so the information is false. I tried other locking programs and other eeprom programs and nothing changed.
My xbox orginal eeprom was banned because of modificaiton because I did something stupid. I got another eeprom and hard drive then i got that error so i tried another eeprom and same thing.
