Headset not turning on

Honored Guest

This happened yesterday, once I was about to get on it just didn’t turn on, I assumed it was dead so I tried charging it and nothing worked and here I am today making a post to see if anybody could help me with this problem, because I really don’t wanna waste $399 for the Quest 3.
