Focus your lenses

If this is your first time using the Gear VR and you’re seeing out-of-focus images, you may just need to adjust your lenses. It’s really easy to do. Put on the Gear VR first. At the top of the headset, you’ll find a scroll wheel. Scrolling to the right will bring the images closer to your eyes, and scrolling to the left will make them further away. You can use this to make sure what you see is in focus, and it’s especially handy for those who don’t have fantastic eyesight.

  1. Insert your phone into Gear VR and attach it to your head.
  2. Turn slowly distance knob, until the text is clear.

It is important that you are relaxed while reading the text on the screen and do not tense up while reading. Once that’s possible, you’re ready to move on!

Clean your phone screen and lenses inside the Gear VR

There are two other reasons why you may see blurry images. If your phone screen is not clear, the image will be blurry. The inside of your Gear VR may also contain some dust or dirt that gets in the way. Fortunately, they are both easily fixed.

You can use a microfiber cloth to wipe your phone screen, which may solve your problem. You can also count on compressed air to remove dust. Use compressed air in short bursts to remove dust or dirt that has entered the interior. After that, you can clean the lenses with a microfiber cloth if you still have problems.

  1. Check your phone screen for fingerprints
  2. Clean off dirt or stains
  3. Use compressed air in short bursts on the inside of the Gear VR
  4. Wipe with a microfiber cloth if needed

How to fix audio sync issues on Gear VR

Having audio that is out of sync with the action on screen is frustrating at the best of times, but inside virtual reality it can be disastrous. It’s best to have a good pair of wired headphones, as audio lag seems to occur with Bluetooth headphones.
