TrackIR 5 Camera Chip Problem?!?!

Post by SpartusKil » Sat Mar 27, 2021 5:07 am

Hey guys, so my TrackIR 5 camera is overheating like crazy. It overheats so much that I believe the chip is shutting itself down. Every time i plug it in, Windows recognizes it and then 10-20 seconds later its shuts off. Even the TrackIR software detects it and then poof its gone. I touch the camera and it is insanely hot. I unplug it and then after a while, it cools off.

I decided to open the back and see what was going on and I realized that the second I plug it in, the chip overheats specifically on the top right side of it. It gets insanely hot within 2-5 seconds. What can I do to fix this? Can I fix anything at all? If not, what should my next steps be?

I've been using this for only about 5 months and it happened all of a sudden mid-game. Thanks guys!
