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.

My ps4 controller is not charging and i dont know why. When i put the cable in the yellow colour comes on the control and ive left it for hours thinking it would be charged but it hasn't. Can anyone help me please.

by

my controller isn't charging at all, the yellow light that signafies that it's charging doesn't show, and I keep thinking it's either the battery is over heated or that i drained the battery completly, but im not sure, does any one know what the problem could be?

Hello everyone. I have had severe difficulties with my controller charging. I was playing fortnite and my controller died. I plugged it up, nothing. So I looked on YouTube to find solutions. Either A: the item I needed wasn't on my PS4 or B it was just clickbait or whatever. If someone can help me get My controller to work again I would greatly appreciate it.(and I can't replace the battery. I think it's too risky)

There are many things that can be wrong here that you might have to experiment with Ben, whatever is wrong your going to have to open up your remote and either replace something or overall buy a new device, might I ask if you have either A) checked a different cord, or B) if it charges with an outlet? I don't want to tell you to take apart your controller if the issue is small.

Try this fix....

Unplug PS4 from mains plug for 3 minutes, turn it back on then reconnect your controller into the PS4 USB port ...

Press the PS BUTTON and the SHARE BUTTON at the same time!!!!

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

Mine has had a new battery and a new port including ribbon cable and nothing. It will not turn yellow under any condition but will work if plugged in and turned on.. Ps4 shows it as low battery (0 cells) but works forever. If turned on not plugged in it turns off almost immediately after being synced. When I bought the new battery it was half charged and worked for quite a while.

Lexylex did you resolve the problem? I have the same Problem, changed the Port jds030 and the cable, still not working. But it charges on the ext port. So I guess it's a part on the mainboard of the controller which controls USB functions...

by

You may have scratched the motherboard in the device or sent a shock through it, thus not sending the energy to the battery, I suggest replacing the entire remote, Florian

If you frequently take your controller part it could be the strip that runs from the charging part to the motherboard.

Hey my controllers have both been doing to the same things!? What did you do to fix yours? I was thinking about maybe changing the battery? Never pulled mine apart but I watched a tutorial and it should be easy. But i have to order them online and it’ll take a while and I don’t want to buy a new controller to play in the mean tim, you know ... so did you get yours sorted? Maybe it is the port. Hmm.

I've taken apart my controller entirely, to find one of mini circuits fried, had to rewired everything and soldering it, also used various circuits of broken controllers.

I have a similar problem, my controller was fully functional until a month ago more or less when was the last time I used it, then it remained stored in my PS4 suitecase, then two nights ago I plugged it on my cell phone charger (Android, output 5V 1800 mA), I saw the orange light going on, so I turned around and went to sleep, the next morning I went to my friend's house and I gave him my controller so he could sync it with his PS4 but it didn't recognize it, so we thought his cable was the problem, when he tried with his controller, it charged it but not on mine, so I returned to my place, turned on my PS4 to find out my battery was almost dead, so I took it apart to check what the problem might be, to do so, I also took apart my another controller, replace the battery from one to another and both batteries charged in the good controller but neither in the defective one, so I discarded the battery problem, then I interchange the back part of the controllers (The one with the USB port with the ribbon cable on it) and to my surprise none of the controllers charged, when putting them back, again one controller was charging and the other one wasn't, so I'm not sure if my problem is in the USB board or my mother board, I hope someone can help me out with this issue since I've no money for a new controller. Ahh by the way the deffective controller is the camouflage edition (Gray and white) regards.

Sergio, hopefully this helps. I am almost certain that this is a USB board issue which is super easy and a cheap fix. The reason why Sony gives us the regular PS4 remote chargers is for the exact reason we don't use our Android phone chargers, they give off too much spark, damaging the board every time we use it. I suggest going to your local game store/Amazon/ect to get a new USB board and an ACTUAL PS4 CHARGER. Hope this Helps! ~Aidan

Thank you Aidan, I already look for it in Amazon and as you said, it is quite cheap, two usb boards + two ribbon cables + a phillips screw driver just $us. 7.99, unfortunatelly as I don't live in the states nor any well civilized country (I live in Bolivia) I will have to ask my relatives who live abroad to send it to me, but thanks anyway for your help, I appreciate it, have a terrific weekend my friend (World Cup weekend).

I'm on the same boat friends.

My ps4 charges my phone but wont charge my controller.

I have occasionally charged my controller with my phone charger.

I have tried all ur guys methods with no luck.

Im starting to wonder if using my ps4 controller on my pc has anything to do with it.

I also replaced my battery..no luck..

Reset button didnt work.

And when I hold down PS and Share it just flashes white for 1 minute then turns off..
