Oculus Quest 2 keeps putting a black square in my face

Level 2

So I forget when it started but my Oculus Quest 2 just keeps showing a black screen at random then I have to shake it and the square will go away. I don't know why this is happening and I am getting tired of having to shake my Oculus every so often.
