Tax Alert and black screen inside HMD!

Hello Pimax

Please fix my HMD and stupid tax alert. I do not own you anything. Payed taxes 3 months ago. After installing PT 270 I have a constant black screen inside HMD @75 hz mode. Anyone know how to fix this. DO I need support assistance?

Edit: created ticket #14750

You can downgrade PiTool temporarily.

According to @PimaxUSA the functionality has been removed in an upcoming release.

They should also be able to remove Your S/N from whatever “missing tax black list” it must be on.

There’s a lengthy thread about the issue here:

I have invited 2 pimax members (Quorra & Claire)

Have you submitted a ticket? If so post number.

As Drwilken mentions simply install 268 as it is a very easy work around making the whole idea of this useless as many seem to have a favourite older version. Firmware is not affected with using an earlier version(at least within some kind of window)

Hello,

@Claire will be providing assistance on this. She is going to speak with the support and remove the tax alert message and about the constant black screen.

Before any solution, we suggest you to downgrade the Pitool version to prevent any poor experience.

Sincerely.

Hello,

We have removed the tax alert message. May I ask if you could use the headset normally? If you have any problem, please let us know. Thank you.

Best Regards

Wouldn’t You have to release a new version of PiTool to remove it?

Not if there is in fact a specific per HMD backdoor.

Hi,

Thank you for your reply. Pitool should not be needed. The specific operation process is need solved by our colleagues. And then this kindly prompt message has been removed. When we re-start headset, we can use it normally.

Best Regards

Ahh, I get it now :slight_smile:

They probably mean they’ll empty whatever S/N blacklist they have, but the actual functionality which check the blacklist isn’t removed before a new PiTool version comes out… :slight_smile:

Thanks for the clarification, @Claire.
