[Resolved] Pimax 5K HMD won't start?

Not sure if this is the right place for this, but I have no idea how anyone navigates this forum. Pimax 5k, haven’t used it in about a week. Sit down to play some DCS tonight and the HMD won’t start. I power it on, light and LED comes on, but lenses are black. Volume control works.

Update Pitool to 1.0.1.132 and it updates the firmware successfully. Still dead. Unplugged, rebooted, powered off 200 times, nothing.

Diagnostic codes I got were 20300 and 20700

Are you using Nvidia? Have you updated to latest GPU driver?

Use Taskmanager & ensure Pi aerver is running.

20700 says Pi service not running.
20300 says headset not detected.

Search function using Keyword can help. Sometimes to find info.

Problem solved, a simple re-install of PiTool fixed it.

Thanks!
