Quest 3 stuck in Battery Saver Mode

Honored Guest

So I toggled the battery saver mode 3 days ago and ofc it lowered resolution. I wanted to test the feature. So I toggled it on, saw the change, and then toggled it off. When I turned it off, the resolution stayed the same, the fovetated size stayed the same. Everything was the same as if I was still on battery saver mode (with full charge on the headset).


I ignored this issue until today as I cannot deal with it anymore. I restarted the device, resolution is still low, text is pixelated, FOV is terrible, everything warped. The headset thinks I'm in battery saver mode still. Tried toggling it on and off and there is literally no change when turning it on, and of course no change when going back to off.



Please help. 


I'm on v60

Hey there @dinkd ! A major component of the VR experience is how you perceive the world through the headset. We would love to assist you with this issue and help you get back to enjoying those fun games and apps! We recommend completing a hard reboot. To do so, please complete the following steps:

  1. Hard Reboot the headset
    1. Hold down the power button and volume down button for 30 seconds until you hear the boot-up sound
    2. If the boot-up sound is not heard:
      1. Hold the power and volume (-) button down simultaneously until the boot screen loads on your headset.
      2. Use the volume buttons on your headset to highlight "Boot Device" and press the power button.
      3. Use the volume buttons on your headset to highlight Yes and press the power button.​

After completing, Let us know if your headset returns to its original display settings.

I am having the same issue and not able to restore display settings to original after enabling the battery saver mode one. I tried to hard boot the device as per the instuctions  above but that didn't work. it's really affecting my overall experience. Could you please help me with this?

Hey there, @Ozzy.2002, thanks for reaching out to the community with this! This experience is not anybody's idea of a fun time, so please be assured we're happy to work with you to get to a resolution for it! You've already tried a hard-reboot of the headset which would normally clear out anything stuck that might be causing this, but as the issue is still there, we'll have to take out a bigger hammer, so to speak. I'm going to recommend we proceed with a Factory Reset of the device as the best way to clear this up. What this will do is reset the device to a "like-new" state, wiping all information and data off the device. Follow the steps in the article linked here, and pay special attention to the portion about Cloud Backup:


Factory Resetting your Meta Quest Device


Be sure when setting the device back up that you sign back into your existing account and do not inadvertently create a new one during the setup process. The most likely scenario is that the reset resolves the issue, and you'll be all up and running without troubles. However, if the issue still persists, we may need to get our support team to dig into it further. Let us know the results when you can, and we'll be hoping to hear back from you soon! Happy holidays!

Please let us know when you can, and always remember to reach out with anything you might want to ask about in the future!
