META 3 Not powering on!

Honored Guest

We have a Meta 3 Oculus that suddenly went black and will not power back on. The last update on the app shows it to be charged. It was left on the charger overnight. We also tried plugging it in a different location. We have tried holding down the buttons for 30 seconds, waiting 5 minutes, and then doing it again. This item was purchased 4 months ago. HELP!!

Hey there, @myminions83! We don't want a black screen to continue to hold you back from enjoying VR, so we'd love to look further into your headset!

To help us take a deeper look into the device, we would like to invite you to send us a PM with the following details: 

  • Confirm if any LED lights are present on the outside of the headset.
  • Make sure to remove any third party accessories 
  • Attempt a factory reset on the device 

From there, we'll continue working to make sure you're all set! To send us a PM, either select our name to get to our profile page, or click here while signed in to the community. Next, click "Send a Message" to privately message us!
