Headset stays on when charging

Level 2

Hi there,


I haven't used my Quest 2 for around or month or so, and have finally gotten round to using it again, however, I have a pretty major issue. Whenever I charge the headset, it turns on and stays on. I tried turning it off through the software as well as holding down the power button until it turns off. I've left it to charge for 2 hours and it only charged 2%! 


I've disabled all the wake-up features, so I don't think it's that either. I've removed the lens cover and it has made no difference. This issue seems to have come about with the software update, as when the Oculus logo was visible it was fine, but with the new Meta logo there appears to be problems. 


I also can't update the software anymore as it is below 50% and won't charge up!
