Pimax 5K+ seems to have developed bad lightbleed from both lenses

issue

#1

At the start of the month I got my Pimax 5K+ and I tested Elite Dangerous for black levels and ligthbleed. The black levels weren’t great and seemed just about acceptable, the lightbleed was there but not a major problem.

I have just played Senmua VR and I could not believe how utterly bad the lightbleed was. Any dark scenes were ruined by a yellowish haze of lightbleed. So to ensure it wasn’t the game I tested IL-2 BoX in a night mission and it was the same thing.

Is it possible for a HMD to develop lightbleed? I genuinely would have noticed it being this bad. I took this using a pure black screen in VR and as can be seen I get a lot of light bleed

Is this normal?

Wow that is bad!!!


#3

What is the light bleed in Elite Dangerous now compared to a month ago?


#4

My 5k+ is about the same I only play brite games with it. No issue at all with my 8k.


#5

That looks bad, but how long was your camera exposure? I’m assuming it was on automatic, so is that a good representation of what you see, or was the brightness exaggerated by the camera?

Regardless, if the situation has seriously worsened, I’d recommend contacting Pimax support.


#6

I uninstalled Elite Dangerous but can reinstall as a test.


#7

It doesn’t look far off that to be honest, though yes it is exaggerated due to total dark room and only the pimax on with a pure black screen. Could you (or anyone else) do a similar test as a comparison please?


#8

I have only been playing Il-2 BoS and DCS during daylight missions. It was during a test of Senmua I noticed how bad it was.


#9

So having searched the forum I found these 2x threads with images of lightbleed that looks like what I see.

@Neander @monti did you get your Lightbleed issue resolved? Did it look like the image in my post above?

@Tyleristall did you get your problem resolved


#10

My light bleed is like that. I haven’t had resolved yet. They say they’re talking it over but I thing resolved.


#11

Do someone test the Affected? I feel it has some bightness layer all over the game and difficult to see some environment in the game (The beginning room not be like this), titanic vr is same.


#12

No i did not get it resolved.
I also have bad housing.
They told me to send a new one.


#13

This is light bleed?


Image which I am looking.

How should it be?
Because when I play all dark game, it always has some light over the image of the game, but I misunderstand that it is some grey colour).

On steamvr home, I try to look at the edge and it is purple colour, but not sure that it is light bleed or not.

This is the first headset I am waiting to return after get the new replacement.


#14

lol cant believe he didnt test that.


#15

the chewing gum they use to adhere the panels must have come loose


#16

who uninstalls Elite Dangerous :grinning:


#17

Yup, I reported the same issue in Tyleristall’s thread… I’m patiently waiting for a reply from Pimax support, and in the meantime I’m curious about Tyleristall’s replacement, to see if it’s an improvement or not…


#18

Mine has developed a small spot on the far left. I have covered it with a piece of electrical tape at the edge of the lense.


#19

Oculus Home began, suddenly, launching over and over, here, so I figured maybe I should get around to finishing Technolust, so that I can uninstall OH after that…

Same experience as with the Rift: The ridiculously dank environments of the game are completely overpowered by the glare in the device. :stuck_out_tongue:
