Title:

PS4 Bluetooth has range of 1 ft or less

Text:

A few months back my son pushed my PS4 off of its location causing it to drop approximately two feet. After this event the PS4 had absolutely no problem turning on or playing any game but I noticed that the controller would turn off as soon as I turned the system on from the location I usually played games in. I moved much closer to the PS4/TV and the controller suddenly worked fine. I have absolutely no issue playing as long as I am a ft. away from the device, otherwise the controller commands I issue sputter (I will press right at the menu and it wont stop going right, until I move closer) or the controller just turns off. Is there a way I can fix this myself? Thank you.
