Oculus Rift S orange light

So, I was playing assetto corsa in VR and my HMD screen went dark with the orange light turned on. After I tried putting them back on and saw oculus home for a brief second but it turned off again. I checked notifications and devices, the display port goes on and off and asks to update firmware which I did multiple times. I've replugged the wires on the HMD itself, reinstalled both oculus and GPU drivers and tried connecting to another display port. Anyone else went trough this, or have any opinions on what it might be? Any help would be appreciated!

Sounds like the same problem I have!

Did your notifications say the display port wasn't plugged in?

Exactly that, did yours just start doing it as well? Might be some new update

When I plug it with USB 2.0 it doesn't show the orange light and the screen does turn on with the loading animation might end up buying a usb powered hub and see if it fixes. It's a bit weird because I've been using it for over a year with no problems just plugging it to my mobo

Ok it's working now maybe my steering wheel and all the accessories were drawing too much current from the usb ports. I took them all off and only ran the Rift S, mouse and keyboard. First plugged it in the 2.0 then 3.0 and now it magically works

From researching on the internet, the power thing is absolute rubbish. It's a software issue that has been around for over a year that Oculus still haven't fixed. I used my headset for less than 10 hours before it has broken. Absolute joke.

Have the same problem here...i have tried all procedures, check all my USBs, the only way to stop the firmware update requst loop/orange light is plug the USB 2.0 first than connect in USB 3.0, but, shutdown when a set in my head. In USB 2.0 the Rift keeps ON, but don't track the movement correctly...it's so BAD ........OCULUS, please fix our issue!!!!
