Vive camera glass crack


Recommended Posts

I've recently found a little crack in the little thin glass/ plastic over the camera.

It doesn't affect the viewing as far as i know but I'm wondering if the glass is available to buy to replace?

 

I read the camera comes from an HTC phone so the glass is probably the same size. Similar to this?

We don't sell individual components and we don't recommend you attempt to repair or modify your Vive equipment. However, if you were willing, you could contact our Live Chat support and have them set up an RMA repair for the device.

Thank you,

Did that work or did you find anything that worked? I'm thinking of getting a piece cut if I can't find a chinese supplier that sells a phone camera lens cover of the same diameter. 

Did you measure the exact diameter of the glass or the whole?

@GARBAGEPLAY - For over a year now, we've partnered with iFixIt to sell some replacement components for the most common problems that can be self-repaired. That said, there are many parts such as the camera in this scenario which are put into the headset as entire assemblies. Some parts are more replaceable than others and require various levels of disassembly. Many internal parts require a clean room otherwise you get dust in the headset.
