So my Oculus Rift S was working great for months since I purchased it back in April this year and I was playing with it a lot. Then I got really involved in some Total War games for about a month, but afterwards I wanted to play some VR again. So I booted up my Rift S and Oculus said there was an update so as always I applied it, and after it was done I put the headset on and everything starts booting up normally. It goes to my custom Oculus home area, and after about 30 seconds the lenses go black, but only for about 3 seconds and then I can see my home area again. But after another 30 seconds it goes black again, except this time it doesn't come back on.
I can still hear all the sounds and music playing from the Oculus home area, but the lenses are just black. Now here are the things I've tried to remedy this problem.
-Unplugged and replugged in the USB and Display - It comes back on but does the blinking black screen again and then nothing.
-Unplugged and replugged in the cable in the headset again to see if it was loose - It didn't fix it.
-Uninstalled and reinstalled the Oculus Software - Nope, nothing changed.
-Checked to make sure it was getting enough power when it was connected - Yep, plenty of power, but still doesn't work.
-Double checked to make sure that Power Saving was not shutting off any of my ports to USB or display - Nope it's all good, but still doesn't work.
This seems to have happened ever since the last firmware update, but I can't be sure. I have searched for this problem in numerous places online and have not seemed to find anyone else who's had this exact problem. The only thing I'm sure of is that every time I reset my Oculus to try and fix it, it will always do the two blinks to black screen as I described above. 30 seconds blink to black for 3 seconds, and then screen back on for another 30 seconds, and then permanent black screen with audio.
I've done my best to describe this problem, and I seriously hate to think that my Oculus is dead after only a few months of fun ownership. I had a hard time even finding a Rift S during this pandemic, and I hate the idea of trying to spend the money on a replacement.
