Meta quest 3 boot loop/maybe overheating?

Honored Guest

So weird one here, recently got a meta quest 3 maybe 2 weeks ago I was playing with some friend and my microphone started to fade so I restarted my headset hoping for a quick fix. It didn’t fix 

so I turned off waited a minute and got hit with a infinite boot screen where I saw the meta logo then went to black just repetitively. Forced a power down by holding power button for 10-15 seconds powered back on and the fan all of a sudden turned on going very fast, I was playing for a good 2-3 hours intermittently taking off the headset letting it charge. Waited for the fans to stop tried to power back on didn’t work, tried a factory reset, that didn’t work. Still stuck at the boot loop. Out of ideas. Any help would be greatly appreciated was above 50% battery for entire ordeal, it’s a 128 gigabyte model
