Troubleshooting Checklist for Roblox Error Code 277
If this is something you rarely experience, then it could be caused by your internet service provider. However, if it has just happened recently or after a major update, then here are some things you could try to fix the issue:
Test Internet Connection
We recommend checking internet latency and speed if everything is operating normally. We also encourage trying other online multiplayer games to make sure that it’s purely internet related. If you are experiencing a lost connection in other games, better contact your ISP instead. Here are some things you can do by yourself:
- Power cycle devices (mobile devices, consoles, and modem/router)
- Check Internet Settings
- Use built-in program compatibility troubleshooter
- Use Port Forwarding
- Use VPN
- Disable ad-blocker
- Check Compatibility Settings
- Outdated version of Windows
- Check Firewall
If you believe you have the best internet option and you’re still having issues, then try the next possible solutions.
Update your default browser
Keeping Google Chrome and your browser extensions up-to-date is highly recommended when playing Roblox games. Suppose you’re using a different browser (Internet Explorer). Plenty of users have reported that this has been a common error, and updating their browsers can usually fix the issue.
You might also want to try clearing your cache and deleting your cookies if you’re still having some issues. Also, check your internet option tab for further troubleshooting. While a poor internet connection is a factor for connection error, you can’t be too sure.
While letting Roblox update on its own is usually the best and most convenient approach, it could occasionally cause game-breaking bugs.
The issue could be caused by a lot of factors: incomplete installation files, incorrect compatibility mode settings, as well as new issues that were nonexistent in the previous versions.
Using Windows search bar, type Apps & Features and access advanced settings to uninstall Roblox games. Users can also go to Control Panel to access Apps & Features
Download the latest build for Roblox Player on their website. Install the app and wait for it to finish

Delete Roblox Log Files
Another useful tip we got from the Roblox community is deleting your log files for Roblox games as they might have been corrupted.

Type ‘Enter%localappdata%Robloxlogs’ (without the “) and press enter
