Quest Pro Face Tracking + Eye Tracking Problems. Not working together


Hello, my quest pro is unable to use face tracking + eye tracking at the same time, and the eye tracking when it works is not tracking eyelid movement at all - not even for blinking. I suspect the IR leds are defective. I have tested the tracking in multiple apps including Horizon Worlds and VRChat and its as I described in all of them. In attempting to fix the issue I have also:
- reset the headset multiple times

- toggled "fit adjustment" setting off and on

- toggled face tracking off and on

- toggled eye tracking off and on

The face tracking never works, even when eye tracking is turned off. The eye tracking only works when face tracking is turned off, but still has no eyelid movement or blinking.

The eye and face tracking are the main reason I bought this headset for so it is very disappointing for it to be not working like this.



I have also taken a look at the headset with my phone camera and it appears the IR LEDs around the optics are still lighting up.

Hi there, @jessiewtf. Tracking is an extremely crucial part of getting the best overall VR experience you can get. We take these matters very seriously and would love to see if we can get this sorted out for you. With that being said, we would like to ask you some questions to get a better handle on what you're dealing with and which route we should take. Can you tell us when the issue started? Thank you for sharing all of the steps you have tried to resolve this issue on your own; we commend you on that. Have you tried to perform a factory reset on the headset? A factory reset can sometimes cause the tracking to revert and start working again. Those steps are as follows:


To perform a factory reset using your phone:


  1. Open the Meta Quest app on your phone.
  2. Tap Menu, then tap Devices.
  3. Tap the headset connected to your phone.
  4. Tap Headset Settings then tap Advanced Settings.
  5. Tap Factory Reset and then Reset.

To perform a factory reset using the headset:


  1. Turn off your headset.
  2. Hold the power and volume (-) button on your headset down simultaneously until the boot screen loads on your headset.
  3. Use the volume buttons on your headset to highlight Factory Reset and press the power button.
  4. Use the volume buttons on your headset to highlight Yes and press the power button.

Please keep us updated on your progress! If the issue still persists after the reset, please let us know, and we'd be more than happy to look into all of the options that are available to you. We hope to hear from you soon, and have a great day!

Thank you for your reply. The issue I described began on Friday. As mentioned in my original post I have factory reset the headset twice already and both the controllers in an attempt to fix this issue. The issue is still present today showing the same behavior as I described on Friday.
