After taking a break from my headset for a while, I decided to set it up again to play with it more often.
However, I'm unable to get it to work:
- The headset's LED indicator is flashing orange rapidly, meaning that it is receiving power
- The screen is black (no sound either)
- The headset isn't being detected by the Oculus Home software, despite me repeatedly unplugging & replugging the cables in repeatedly, including reinserting the cable into the headset itself.
- It doesn't seem to be detected at all, despite still receiving power. I assume that when I connect the headset, Windows should play the "device connected" sound, right?
So far, I've tried reinserting the cables, restarting my computer, reinstalling the Oculus software, updating my GPU's drivers (GTX 980Ti), updating Windows 10 (was on v. 1709, now I'm on 1809). I've had the headset for less than two years (First got brand new in September 2017), and with what I would call somewhat light-use. I've considered getting a replacement cable, but I have no idea if the problem is related to the cable itself. My three sensors all work just fine, detected by the software, while it seems to think that both the USB and HDMI cables to my headset are not connected. When I first discovered the problem, I noticed that my controllers weren't being detected by the software (I tried turning them on, but they still showed as off in the software), but I can't verify whether this problem is connected to the headset not working. I haven't been able to try re-pairing them to see if they work because the software requires a headset to be connected in order to go through that process.
I'm not sure what other potential solutions I could try. Any ideas on how I could possibly troubleshoot the issue?
If I end up needing to replace the headset, what are my options?
