How to fix PS4 Bluetooth receiver?

Hi, i am facing a problem with my PS4 i.e. while playing game PS4 stop receiving commands from the controller and then it executes all the commands at once which looks like game play is working on its own.

Reason why i am suspecting that the problem is with PS4 bluetooth reception is that i have faced the same issue with two separate controllers where as both the controllers are working perfectly fine on an other PS4.

looking forward to some great answers.

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Thank You for the awesome fix, first time I did not realize their were 2 wires and of course the fix didn't work. After I realizedthere were 2 wires like a coaxle TV antenna wire the fix worked great! Again Thank You Very Much! Also tried it like someone posted about not using the metal at all just stripped 1" of wire & 1/8" of shielding wire so two wires aaren't touching, this worked also, No Solder Needed! Unbelievable Son & I lived with this nightmare for 3 years, mostly he did. Unit took a fall His Freshman Year at College. I had thought maybe a broken PC board(green board)!

Thanks for the reply. By any chance have u tried setting up your system (out of the box) with the cronomax. without the Bluetooth chip /ps4 ccontroller a simple answer would suffice thanks again makes me abit happy to know there's a possibility for me to get it working without opening up my system

I've ran into this issue before as well. You're going to need to replace the wireless comms chip. Here is my old post on this topic.

Controller won't sync with console..

I currently have this problem as well, did everything I could so I was talking to Somebody in the Sony live chat website and they say that I'll have to send it in for repair. Is there any other working option tho?

Why the &&^& can't Sony just use an old school wire connection instead of this Bluetooth horseshit? Now Apple expects me to buy their new IPhone with no headphone jack- only $@$*!& ass Bluetooth and wireless headphones? Bluetooth is total crap and these want to be high rollers looking like &#@& with their gay add Bluetooth gadgets hanging on their ears. Bluetooth is ruining basic electronics from working....cordless crap

and if not the bluetooth? I initializes the system and now I get a window that says, "to use this device connect it using a USB cable or register you again" but I press the PS button and does not work, in safe MODE if it works, but in no way will not then it could be a software problem, if someone has a control cable could prove whether this works in the selection window user selection or setup, or safe mode.

This is an old thread with many actual views so just for playing get the new ds4 controller the one that comes with ps4 slim or ps4 pro with the gray joysticks connect via USB to your ps4 and goto settings->devices->controller and set it to usb instead of Bluetooth. This option only appears when you connect the new controller. Audio and chat will not work with this mode. For chat and audio get an astro mixamp connect your headset and boom your ps4 is playable again.

I'f u have already taken the PlayStation apart id recommend looking at the antenna and see if that wire is soldered at both points because that's the Bluetooth wireless transmitter and it has to have a gap u will notice when u see it. Just fixed my roommates for him he almost threw it away and bought a new PS4 lol. All you have to do is bend it back into the correct placement solver and re solder the wire to both points. Don't be shy to expose more wire just be carful it's a really thin hairlike wire
