Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

    Just checking. Did you go through recovery mode on the Hololens:

    1.Hold the power button for 15 seconds, until all the lights are off.

    2.Press and hold the volume up button

    3.While holding the volume up button, press and hold the power button for 10 seconds, until the middle LED on the device arm lights up.

  • My hololens just stays “Hello” for a long time, then it displays green screen.Finally it shuts down automatically.
    I also try recovery mode and use recovery tool.The recovery tool can detect the Hololens,but it stops on the final step.The hololens can't update to the latest Windows Holographic OS.

    p.s. my Hololens is development edition.

    Thanks





  • My hololens also has the same problem. Have you fixed this please let me know.Thanks

  • Does anyone have any updates on this? I haven't had any luck with the WDRT and all we can see is the Hello screen but no visuals, though we do keep hearing music, so we do know the HoloLens is on.

  • It may be overheated. If you are using outside, the Hololens will shut off in less than 5 minutes. When you try to restart, it will give you the "Welcome" splash and simply go blank. Bring the unit inside a cool place and wait 5-10 minutes and try again.

  • Is there any update on this topic, I'm having mentioned problem and can't solve it. Cheers

    Has this problem been resolved? Please let me know how.

  • I just experienced the similar problem. The HoloLens shows the Hello screen repetitively when turned up and never move forward. It doesn't connect to the PC with USB in normal mode, and on recovery model (power up with volume up), the Windows Device Recovery Tool stuck on the "Reading device information" screen forever.

    Then, eventually, I tried to use the manual mode (Click on the “My device was not detected" button and follow the steps, and connect the device (On recovery mode) to the computer, and it eventually be able to connect and reset the device.
