Oculus Sensor Suddenly stopped working on second day of owning Rift

So I've posted this a few places, and opened a support ticket, but I haven't gotten a response aside from an initial reply. 

So two days ago I setup my new Rift and the two sensors that came with it. Everything worked just fine and I had a blast. Then yesterday I used it for a couple of hours in the afternoon and everything was still working just fine. Then when I booted it up later that evening I noticed the tracking was all wonky, I was like submerged in the ground and my hands were far above my head. I tried resetting my perspective from within Home but that didn't work so I removed the headset and checked the Home app on my PC, and I had a notification that my sensor was not working properly. 

When I looked at it, it had the error of: Poor Tracking Quality, and when you hover over it "Repeated catastrophic failure." Since then I have rebooted Oculus, rebooted my PC, swapped the USB ports every which way possible and even uninstalled the faulty sensor driver and then repaired Home's installation. Nothing has worked. It seems as if this sensor is just a lemon? It hadn't been touched since my initial setup and it worked for roughly 24 hours just fine--then poof--can't seem to function.

Any ideas? And if not how do I go about getting this replaced as soon as possible?

    If it's only happening on 1 sensor, that could be a hardware issue. Please contact us for help. Thanks.
