Constellation sensor short circuit


I bought oculus + touch in March 2017. All was OK till now, when PC refused to boot with plugged in sensor (one of them). Booting screen stated that "Over current is detected in USB device". After multiple reboots I figured out that it was exactly one of the Constellation sensors. If I plug it when PC is booted already, Windows 10 freezes instantly (no reaction to input and no change in output). Recently, it got worse. My motherboard refuses to boot even when the sensor is unplugged. PC gets operational only, if I plug off power cable and reinstall BIOS battery (resetting short circuit protection). 

And the major addition to the problem that I bought Oculus in Germany while I was in long business trip. Now I am in Russia, Moscow. Is there something I can do to repair the broken sensor?
