Vive screen turns black after few seconds of use. However the audio remains.
I recently bought my htc vive and set it up. It worked until after I updated the firmware on all the things. Then upon use it boots steam vr then black screen after only a few seconds. I still get audio so I can at least rule out the hdmi cord. Other than that I'm at a complete loss to fixing this.
Re: Vive screen turns black after few seconds of use. However the audio remains.
@Ponuru, Are you still having issues with this? It appears as this issue may be related to recent SteamVR builds. A bug within SteamVR sets the HMD's "idle time" to 10 seconds. You can manually fix this within the power management section of SteamVR's in-HMD settings.
Nvidia drivers have also been known to cause issues lately and so rolling back to a driver from >1 month ago may help.
