Ps4 dualshock controller won't turn on

Hello everyone.

I have 2 ps4 controllers.

One of them doesn't go on. If I put them on the charge cable on the ps4 they lit orange as usual but as soon as I put them off the cable it goes out. If I press the home button it won't turn on. Only via cable.

So I thought that it was the fault of the battery. I bought a new battery out it in and still the same. The other controller functions without problem and this one also but doesn't go on wireless.

Please help what can I do?

It's amazing how this happens in realtime

but never noticed till it quits with triggers

dropping out etc.

Took me about 3 days & several tear downs

under bright light to see slightest evidence

of micro spill, possible sip of coffee combo

sneeze. And you have enough force to get passed

Joy sticks.

Sure enough, a stain mark about size of pencil

eraser bridged across a processor from the board surface.

Only tool used,

Trimmed tooth brush,, with scissor,

making it uniform, dipped in five drops of rubbing alcohol

Now forced wiped at full flex of bristles

across paper towel to clean the brush, and

leave brush wetted just right,,

with battery removed, going at the board in scrubbing action,

quickly drying it with paper towel,, vs micro cloth - that tends

to grab at everything..

Give both sides of board a scrub,

tapped dry, give it a shot of warm air.

Hair dryer what ever,

Set it aside w/o battery for an hour.

Put battery on w/o bottom cover,,

does it work now ?

Note: make sure bump strip to circuit board

contacts are bright - this strip controls all Buttons/Triggers

Best of Luck.

Note2:

I meant to add a custom shield to lay over circuit board,

by simply cutting sample from ziplock bag,, pull up joysticks

and give it one more edge of protection.

But I was so thrilled to actually get back to killing Assassins

I totally forgot.

I had this issue too. Won't turn on with ps button, put charge cable in and it'll blink orange then turn off, but still wouldn't turn on. Reset button didn't help either.

I ended up pulling it apart, cleaning the ps button and the circuit it sits on. Worked after that. (My kids use that controller) So if all else fails, a good service and clean can do the trick especially if something may have been spilt on it.....
