I just got my new RTX 3080 setup and was ready to test. I was running a 3D benchmark, and suddenly I get the popup that the HMD disconnected. I figured it was just a software issue, so rebooted, updated PiTool, etc, etc. But I realized that the power light doesn’t even come on.
I tested the power adapter with a multimeter, solid 12v.
I re-seated the cable on the HMD several times - no change.
I tried powering it via the USB-C port on the bottom (based on this post: Help, my Pimax 5K+ cannot power on via 12V, but via USB-C is semi-working) - no dice.
I created a ticket with Pimax, but not holding my breath. Any advice?
Any chance the 3080 killed the HMD? Seems like an awful coincidence.
Am I right in assuming that once the power adapter is plugged in, even without USB or DP connected that the light on top of the HMD should light up?
