Tracking Lost Loop on Quest 3


Hey there,


I think I found a problem with some headsets (this is my second one with this issue) where if I'm playing a game through Oculus Link (via cable) and take the headset off for a couple minutes, when I get back to it the headset will just be a grey screen with a "Tracking Lost" pop up in the middle.

Controllers won't appear and you can't click the pop up "Continue" button with nothing, not even the headset buttons. I've also tried doing a forced boot up and a factory reset which had led me to the same problem.

The only solution I have come across is leaving the headset on overnight while charging and the next day it will be working again.


Is this a known issue? Is there any real solution to this problem? I want to use the headset in different times of the day and with this problem I'm unable to.
