If the reset doesn't work, then you should open up your dual shock, and see the cable got opened by mistake or due to losing connection.

If you don't find anything, You should try these possible tricks https://www.megebyte.com/ps4-controller-... or contact your nearest store.

So my brother connected his ps4 controller to his phone and when he tried to connect his controller to his console it won’t connect he disconnected it from his phone and when he plugged his controller into the console it will only show a yellow color and won’t let him connect to his system how can we fix this?

@jonathan salsbury If the controller is otherwise working then press and hold the reset button on the controller for a few seconds. This will delete the pairing to the phone. Now connect to the PS4.

If that doesn't work and there's another controller synced to the PS4 - cheat:

Go into: Settings - Devices - Bluetooth

Put the controller into Bluetooth Pairing mode and add the controller on the PS4 (which will show up as a Wireless Controller in the Bluetooth list).

It sounds like two separate issues.

A) Plugging the controller into the USB port of the PS4 doesn't charge it.

This could be a bad cable or a bad USB port. Try to isolate the problem by changing cables or pluging something else into the USB port like a cell phone. If it still doesn't work with the new cable and won't charge your cell phone then the problem is the USB port on the PS4. If it works with the cell phone but not the controller, it may be a bad charging port or battery in the controller and you should consider replacing them.

B) Controller keeps losing sync with PS4 even after resetting it.

  1. Go into the PS4 settings and under Devices remove all PS4 controllers from the list
  2. Reset the controller using the reset button
  3. Sync the controller using the PS button

I was having the same issue as many listed where the controller would function but wouldn’t light up or charge. I tried reset with no luck. Finally, before opting to buy new one decided to take apart & take a look. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary (loose or missing connections) I turned the cable around & put it back together & it worked amazingly. Light started working & was charging. If you need help on doing this there is a video available to watch on YouTube if you google it or try this link. It wasn’t the battery cable but the cable that goes from the port to the board.

its easy. just connect a keyboard to your ps4 and go to settings and then go to bluetooth devices. now forget all devices and then you can manually pair your controller to your ps4 by holding your ps button and share button.

I had this same problem until just now. What you wanna do is put your controller on Bluetooth pairing then go to settings Bluetooth and Bluetooth devices from either PS4 remote play or second screen on your phone. Then you forget one of the dual shock controllers listed then you should see a dualshock there without a dot on the left of it press it and then you got ur controller back

I had this issue where I would plug my PS4 controller into the USB slot on the PS4. I would not get a yellow light bar signaling that it was charging. I have a PS4 charging Stand Connected to my PS4 as well that runs just fine in that USB slot so I know it's not the USB port itself. I tried 2 controllers neither of which worked. However I was able to fix it simply by shutting my console completely off. Not in rest mode but all the way off. I let it sit for 5 minutes and when I turned it back on my controllers were charging once again. I hope this helps you out.
