My oculus rift recent just stopped working. No matter what I do the HDMI doesn't get detected. The little light at the top of the headset turns on & sound plays through. I contacted oculus support and unfortunately all they could suggest was for me to buy a referb one for 350$. They said I could also turn to the forums for help. I've had it for 2 years and I've put it into the original packaging every time I was done with it. It looks brand new and is perfect condition.
Some things i've tried:
Using a different PC
Reinstalling oculus software
Disconnecting and reconnecting the cable
inspecting cable for any damage.
I am hoping someone can help me trouble shoot this. It was working when put away then next time I went to use it it was not functional. I am an electrical engineering, so I have no issues soldering or working with circuit boards. Right now I cant afford a new unit so I really hope I can fix this.
