Blinking Red light on Base Station 2.0


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I've had a Vive Pro close to a month now and upon trying to have some fun today I noticed my tracking was horrible. At this point I became aware that one base station is flashing red. I tried turning it off and on, scanning for updates (no device detected) and so on. I've sent off a request to Vive through support but has anyone managed to solve this?
