My Pimax 5K+ suddenly died and no longer powers on even if I plug in the adapter. I read that the red light should come on even if everything else is disconnected, but there is totally no light. I’ve tried swapping with two other known working power adapters, but still no go.
However, if I connect it via the USB-C port on the bottom of the headset as well as the normal USB and Displayport, it powers on just fine and PiTool detects it ok, green light and all. But the display is still off in the headset and the main triple cable junction and the top part of the headset gets really hot so something is still wrong.
Anything else I can try? Just when Pimax is finally sending me my replacement cable for the sparkles issue, this happens. Sigh… the problems never end. Maybe the new cable will resolve this. I’m quite handy with disassembling and soldering stuff so if there is any way to fix this, I’d like to know.
EDIT: My replacement cable fixed the issue, as well as the sparkles. Thankfully I didn’t end up with an expensive paperweight. See my later post below, the defective cable was fried inside.
