Pimax 5k+ "brick" after failed firmware update?

Hello!

I have problem with my 5k+ after this new 1.0.1.197_R244 version.

My HMD was working good and no problems before trying to install 1.0.1.197_R244 update. I was running 1.0.1.180 version. So then started to install newer version and it took like 2 hours and i clicked cancel.

Now HMD is blinking Red blue and green leds next to power button. PiTool gives error 10500 with Plugin USB and Plugin HDMI/DP.

Its not shown anywhere. Device manager is empty and DFU.exe shows none. I have Nvidia RTX 2070 with 441.08 Driver version.

What should i do to fix this? I’ve watched that Sweviver youtube video and that didn’t help. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Ec0AKuS8ms

Not sure what You’ve tried but I would do the following (and actually I did, with luck, when mine did the same):

  • Power off the HMD by holding the power button
  • Reboot the PC
  • Start PiTool
  • Power on the HMD

Unistall pitools. Restart computer and reinstall pitools.

You could also just disable PiServiceLauncher service (set it to “manual”), reboot and then start the service again (set it back to “automatic”).
