Rift S Black spots in display

edited June 2019 in Oculus Rift S and Rift
I have had my RIft S since the day of release (pre-ordered thru Amazon) and its been fantastic. I put it on today and I had 2 black spots in the view I can only describe as "cigarette burn holes" (like shown at the cinema to change rolls) and 2 white/rainbow teardrops displaying in the same position all the time. Everything else displays as normal. If I close either eye they shift position.
I have tried 3 different PCs and laptops and the result is the same. They appear in the lower third of the display.

Is there a fix or do I need to send them back?

    Hey @jezbeall, that sounds unusual. Was the headset display ever exposed to sunlight or other bright light sources? What you're describing sounds like it may be sun damage. Please contact support at with pictures so we can look into this for you. Thanks! -Rick

    No its never seen sunlight (and no bright lights from late night alien abductions that I know of). It lives in my office with the blinds closed. 
    I will contact support :neutral:
