Oculus Quest screen shows the 3 dots, Oculus Logo, and plays audio. Afterwards, always black.

When turning on my quest it plays its normal loading sequence of dots and the logo and the audio, but then the screen is only black and I can't see controllers at all either. I have factory reset it 6 times - three from my phone and three using the volume buttons. It happened after I was wearing the quest and using the passthrough system when it is looking for a guardian setup. (was using this to test if I could go a whole day wearing the headset)  the screen turned black and I had audio still and the battery was still about 30% according to my phone. I can't find a fix anywhere and the resets do not help. Does anyone know what to do?

    Same thing happened to me, it was working fine, then suddenly this problem, then I noticed, if I pressed the unit against my head, the screen lit up,  it turns out the problem was the silicone cover I had installed over the face pad, I think it was somehow interfering with the sensor in the head unit, I removed it, and it hasn't happened since.

    Since you already did a factory reset I would suggest to try to get a replacement. 
    How would I send in my Oculus Quest to have them review it? I purchased it through Amazon and I have owned it for just over two months now so I don't think I can send it back to amazon. Where should I go?
