About Replacement Cable for Snowing pixel issue


#61

I got my replacement cable from pimax and also have a new error
audiostructures on both sides, rustle, crackle …
the flickering pixels are of course still there
good work pimax, gradually I think they want to fool us …

Hi, I’ve followed the link in the original post and it gives me the message “Signup is not currently available” whenever I try to make an account. I see many posts saying the same thing, why isn’t this fixed?


#63

You mean cable didn’t fix flashing pixels ?


#64

yes, unfortunately, I think they have not extensively tested the cable.
probably not

Damn @Ralf that is really bad.
I guess the cable would need to be “stress” tested @Sean.Huang?
I also guess that is hard to do… I thought mine was fine after a short “delivery” test and at night I did not see it for about 20 minutes or so until I noticed the effect starting up, so testing like 6000 Kabels for 20 minutes at minimum is a lot of time - like 2000h of man time, damn.
I guess the supplier would need to assure a better quality and a technical stress test - how ever you could/would do that.

I have experience that the support is rebuilt and that the supen-tickets are only worked by a full-time and two half-day powers … I wonder why pimax the backer not informed … that would save us a lot of frustration


#67

According to my information, pimax currently concentrates fully on the pimax controller and the upcoming pimax8kx which supposedly should have the best display … I myself do not think of such information … the kicker project was the backer already baited with false facts … eliminate the screendooreffects, etc.
empty promises … and then you get such a bad quality after such a long wait …
pimax should first research their quality standards … I’m just disappointed …

Voodoo ;-).
Well you are right to some extent - but I do Believe that it was not an bad intention - its the way projects go and doing what they did as a “small” company on a global market is not an easy task. But Sure it is frustrating and I guess some aspects should have been better handelt due to existing experiences.
I also Believe that they have not such a great rush for the 8kx as they did with the 5k/8k and also more experience with the basics of those models - basically its just getting a good 4k OLED screen (which would be the best - thought it would be LCD but lets hope ) and a way (2 Cables?) to hook it up - the Horse Power to drive that will be more interesting to acquire.

Has anyone tried ferrite chokes? I doubt the tin foil mod will do much unless it is connected to the cable ground.


#70

I have, on all leads, no effect.


#71

Yeah Eliminate sde is too subjective but is true for those whom it is. Though many confuse seeing pixels as seeing sde.

Like @Toba sde is eliminated.


#72

same for me, replacement cable was duff also.

third times the charm, hoping for new cable to be sent around 8th.

@Sean.Huang

Hi Sean -

Did the next batch go out as planned, “by next week”? Was I in it? SUPEN 2045.

Thank you.

I sent 2 mov files which shows snowing pixels in STEAM VR home.Thank you.


#75

I can agree. When the Pimax is getting warmer, there are more flickering pixels.


#76

Interesting that most people with problems that are including their backer number are all high - 5500+ and mostly above 6000 it seems. So at some stage perhaps they started receiving a whole load of faulty cables. I’m 6189 and have same issue and the periodic black flashes too.


#77

Well My First HMD did not have that issue (but dead pixels), cable was fine, so it could be that they dumped a load of faulty cables on PiMax since my replacement is most likely from a later batch of HMD’s.


#78

I think this is more because these backers are now getting their headsets. A lot in the 3300 area had the same issue but were reporting it about 2-3 weeks ago rather than now. I am 31XX with the issue.

Of course it still could be that the same batch of cables was used for, e.g., 3000 - 4000 and 5800 - 6800. Perhaps over 3 production lines one used a bad cable batch while the other two lines’ cables were good.


#79

5k or 8k? Please. I believe you’ve clarified as backer.

@Dallas.Hao add to earlybackers


#80

5k+. While I have been using th headset tonight the snow effect has been getting worse and so has the frequency of the blackouts.
