How to reset Oculus Quest 2
This manual explains how to restart Oculus Quest 2. It is simple to perform a factory reset if you have the Oculus Phone App installed on your phone, are signed in, and the Oculus Quest 2 is listed as one of your registered devices within the app. Similar to PCs, smartphones, and tablets, carrying out a factory reset typically resolves a wide range of issues and gives the Oculus Quest 2 a fresh start. Even though a factory reset deletes everything on the Oculus Quest, including account information, it is usually the best way to fix software problems.
As with any electrical item, there may come a moment when you want to perform a full factory reset, wipe the Oculus Quest clean, and then reconfigure it from scratch. Using a button on the Oculus Quest or the Oculus App on an iPhone or Android device, you can factory reset your Oculus Quest.
Holding down the power and volume buttons on an Oculus Quest 2 headset will do a factory reset, as would selecting Advanced settings in the Oculus app on a mobile device. Using both volumes to traverse the menu, choose Factory Reset from the list of choices that displays on the screen. To restore the factory defaults on your selected Oculus device or controller, select Reset to confirm your choice. Once you have decided which Oculus device you wish to upgrade or reset, navigate to Advanced Settings. After backing up your game data, you can proceed with a device reset.
If you intend to use the headset again after it has been finished, you must configure it first. Before selling or transferring ownership of your headset, you can also utilize factory resets to erase all of your data. The basic headset setup procedure can then be repeated using the Oculus app. Your headset data will be deleted, as previously said, and you will need to repeat the first procedure in order for Oculus Quest 2 to work. Although it is the most practical method, this method might not always be successful if your Quest headset is malfunctioning.
You may simply reset a VR headset to get it operating again if you are having problems with it and they persist even after restarting it. It’s important to know that if you reset your Oculus Quest 2 controller to factory defaults, none of your own settings or preferences will be saved in the firmware.
