The left lense is mostly black, like an ink splotch with no light

My CV1 Rift no longer lights up on the left lense; has almost no light coming from it. I can see the background slightly but it's not lit up past what looks like a big black splotch.

Any ideas what it might be or how I can fix it?

    Here are some pics: a close up of what on the darkened lense and then both lenses.

    If you remove the faceplate, the plastic part with the foam which is easily removable, did you try to unplug / re-plug the cable on the top left side of the headset? I guess you tried another video output on your computer too?

    If yes the Rift seems defective, sad new...
