Controller won't sync with console.

I've run into an issue with a few PS4's where the controller won't sync with them. I know the controller I'm using is good because I've used it on several different PS4's without issue. Has anyone had any luck fixing this issue?

Thanks

Is this a good question?

When I plug the controller in and I press the PS button the light on the controller flashes blue, but it never connects. The light will go back to orange and then just repeats the process when I press the PS button again.

I managed to change the wireless communication chip on the motherboard and it fixed my problem. In this picture it is in the lower left hand corner covered by a white sticker and shield.

So you must have reballed it by hand?

I didn't even reball it actually. There are only about 60 contacts on the back of the chip and they are spaced far enough apart to not have to reball. I just fluxed the back of the chip that I took from another PS4, put it into position, heated it and it worked like a charm.

Wow..crazy...I assumed you would have to reball it. Nice! Hopefully it lasts a long time!
