One of my two Rift units recently started behaving very oddly - the screen started having some sort of "burn-in/ghosting/frame-fading" effect, rendering the unit unusable (which is one of several reasons I got two - my other one continues to work fine, so I can continue developing
).I already contacted the Oculus support and they're looking into the issue, I'm posting this here in case somebody gets similar issues.
Someone told me about similar "burn-in" effect, although not nearly as strong as mine and recommended sharing my video with others for reference and more information.The issue:
1) Screen doesn't update properly. It takes it a while to display new frame, which slowly fades in, sort of merging with the previous one. The previous frames tend to show up inverted
2) My desktop seems to be "burned in" - whenever the video input is changed, it slowly fades in and then fades out. Other images (if sent to the video input) fade in into it as well resulting in the aforementioned blend of several different frames.3) This one is most peculiar:
After disconnecting all the cables and then reconnecting only the power cable
and then turning it on, the image of the desktop shows up and the "No Input" OSD message slowly fades into it. It also demonstrates that it's problem with the Oculus itself, not the video output or cables or anything like that.I've recorded a video to show the issue, which is worth much more than the words.
I jokingly dubbed this unit "haunted", since it shows up my desktop even with no video feed.
I'll keep you posted on the updates and solutions/suggestions I get from the official support (getting it swapped for one of the 1080p versions wouldn't be bad , but I kid)
