I have a lot of randomized sparkling piksel (noise) all over the display. This issue is there all the time, but increases after more usage. It is subtle in the start…but after a couple of minutes the intensity and amount of sparkles increases.
The HDM also goes black (loss of image) for a split second, and then comes back again. This happes about 3-4 times a minute.
I am unable to register on the support (link at top), get a message that registration in “unavailable”.
Folks, to temporary fix this (while we wait for a replacement cable) we can wrap some aluminium foil around the “hub/splitter” where we plug in the power to the Display Port hub/splitter/box something.
Just wrap aluminium foil around this “hub/splitter” and 10cm on each end of the DP cable cable going in/out from this “hub/splitter”. Other users have tried this with success, and I tried for about 30 minutes yesterday - and I saw no more random sparkling pixels! I need to test this in a much longer VR session, but I wanted to report my finding now if it can help others.
This strongly indicates that the DP cable/hub/splitter/power inlet is badly shielded. A new properly shielded cable is required. But by doing this, we can actually use the HMD while we wait for a replacement.
Pimax, this issue needs to be sorted asap before more “faulty cables” (HDM’s) are sent to customers. I am not 100% sure that it is the cable shielding, but it seems that this is the case.
Oh I fully expect my replacement cable to not fix it, nothing they have done so far has instilled confidence in me or their abilities. I had the sparkling issue, but now it has started to black out. YAY!
