threeeleven Posted November 23, 2016 Share Posted November 23, 2016 Hi, I'm frustratingly looking for some help on my issue that keeps me busy for weeks... After tens of hours of googling, re-installing etc I decided to create this message as I'm totalley clueless... After using the HTC Vive for about 6-7 weeks without any issues, the display of my HMD suddenly (overnight) stayed dark and the LED switches between red and green light. There was no driver or windows update nor did I change anything else in the settings. The HMD still works if the HDMI from the 3-in-1 cable is directly connected to the GPU's HDMI (link box bypassed). I thought the link box was faulty and bought a new one. However, same issue with the new link box: If connected through the link box, the HMD stays all black. Interestingly, the HMD also works if I use the short Vive HDMI cable to connect the HMD with the link box and either a HDMI-HDMI or miniDP-DP cable to connect the link box with my GPU. However, as soon as I replace the short Vive HDMI cable with the 3-in-1 HDMI cable to connect the HMD with the link box, the HMD stops working. So from my layman perspective, there seems to be an issue with the 3-in-1 cable (even though same cable does the job if directly plugged into the GPU HMDI) I tried everything I found on the internet and valve/htc support sites, like checking cables, power cycle, re-install USB drivers, GPU drivers, SteamVR incl. beta, Steam, disable bluetooth communication, turn off camera, tried any USB port (3.0 and 2.0), ensure internal graphic card is deactivated in BIOS, etc... I also checked if BIOS or chipset updates are available and ensured that any Vive firmware is up to date, USB power settings were adjusted (disabled power management) but still, no display in the HMD when using the 3-in-1 cable with the lin box. Your help is greatly appreciated! Cheers, threeeleven My system specs: - Windows 7 Service Pack - GeForce GTX 1070 (tried various drivers) - Intel i7-4770K Processor - 16GB RAM Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
