White Static Flashes in Rift S

Level 2
Hello all,

Wanted to post this in the forums to see of anyone else is having a similar issue, in hopes that I'm not the only one or perhaps someone has already contacted Oculus to see if it's a software issue or not.

I'm having intermittent white (kind of like static) flashes every now and then. They're completely at random and happen in Oculus home and all the VR games I've tried with it (Marvel Powers United, Onward, Blade and Sorcery, Beat Saber)

Any info (other than "I'm not having any issues at all") is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I always knew Oculus would fix the white flashes 🙂

A PC with lots of gadgets inside and a thing to see in 3D that you put on your head.

My white flashes are gone but my usb warning just came back 😞

Grateful this was fixed. I'd sure hate to be the guy who bought Rift S on a launch date and wait this long for a fix. But grateful it's now done nonetheless

That'll be me!

Genuinely happy not to be contemplating returning the S any more, it was the only issue I had and now super pleased.

Same here! I've had my Rift S since launch and I took a chance and didn't return it hoping Oculus would be able to fix the static flashes. I couldn't be happier. I'm glad I made the right decision ??

Yes I am thrilled it is fixed, my Rift S is golden now!
I got it on release day May 24, and so glad I hung in there with it.
