[SOLVED - Bad power supply] Pimax 5k XR - Screen goes black after ca. 5min


After using the HMD for a couple of months it suddenly started to turn off. Steam and games does not appear to be affected, but i have to turn the HMD off, and on again to restart the HMD.

After some fault-checks i tested with another power supply. It appears that the one that came in my box gets a voltage drop after a couple of minutes. I solved this by frankesteining my PC’s PSU and made a custom 12V cable.


Sorry to hear about wall psu. Nice work there is a fellow that makes Sata 12v to headset adapters.

File a ticket with support & they will likely send you a new wall adapter.
