If your PlayStation VR Headset is experiencing location and movement difficulty, use this guide to remove and replace Infrared Range Finder found in the VR headset. Replacing a faulty Infrared Range Finder can greatly improve usability. Please confirm sensor part number prior to purchasing replacement components, since they may vary. The part number should be printed on the sensor itself. It may be necessary to contact Sony for parts, as this sensor is difficult to find.

A troubleshooting guide is also available from Sony here. Please keep in mind that this method requires experience with soldering components directly to a circuit board. If this method is not what you’re looking for, it is also possible to replace the entire sensor board seen in step 25. Remember, computer components are fragile. Be careful with clips and wiring when disassembling and reassembling the computer. They can easily break or get pinched. It may also be helpful to take a picture of wiring routing and component placement before disassembly as a reference for reassembly.
