So, I'm just posting this self answer to be documented in this site, in order to suggest a simple idea for others in similar situation and with consoles out of warranty. Can you and observe if the issue persists while using that new administrator account? The very first thing i tried was re-pairing with the cable, and it just kept blinking white. The day after, I lost another 30 minutes trying everything, safe mode, reset the controller in many different orders. If it is damaged, buy a new receiver and put it on urself. For me it worked for a while, but then i shut it down, and when i press the ps button to start, the controller lights up but then before starting up it turns off. We appreciate your answers to the questions from our previous message to isolate your concern. This has been going on for at least 6 months.
Any ideas on how to fix this? If so, turn off the system, make sure everything is plugged in and then turn it on. So yes, like many of this bitch threads it appears to be just another troll thread and not someone with any actual real issues. I've had this issue before and that's the only thing that fixed it was using the original cable that came with my ds4. I've found in recent days that if I put the console into rest mode that neither of my controllers would start up or sync with the console. I've got the latest preview dashboard. The power indicator will blink for a few moments before turning off.
In my recent experience the system took a couple of extra seconds to recognize the controller, but then it worked. I had three expensive, seemingly dead controllers. If it is not damaged, just clip it back in place on the motherboard and that will solve the problem. This one has been one of - if not the - buggiest that's come out. The funny thing is that my other cables worked after the 1st sync with the blackberry cable. There are sadly just too many possibilities for a controller to not work. The point I tried to make is that we will probably not find out what helps in this case, as it happens in almost any of those daily threads about controllers not working.
I don't know if it's the same for you but maybe something is interfering at your place too. My workaround is to use , and use it as an xbox controller. Sorry for the bump but I was Googling to find a solution and this thread popped up. You can find a bunch of them on Amazon and eBay. All i can do even with the hotspot though is just watch stuff on youtube, netflix, hulu, etc.
I think that there must be an issue with WiFi interference. That meant that while the controller appeared dead, there was some charge left and it was still broadcasting for a connection. The other reason is that your controller is trying to connect to your PlayStation 4, but failed due to unknown factor s. By the way, I have another spare controller. Try pressing that in to see if it clears it up. While I had the system in rest mode and charge cable connected.
Eventually I got it working again but I don't know what I did exactly to fix it. I don't know what happened exactly. Wait until the light on the controller starts flashing. Connect your controller and console with this cable. Called Microsoft and they said there might be a defect with the xbox.
Yeah, was going to say the problem seemed more severe for some. Earlier today i connected the controller back to ps4 and played and loaded the controller with Usb-cable. Follow these instructions: 1 Turn off your PlayStation 4. I can't reverse the last update of the console. Did you only connect your cable to the console, without doing anything else? The white light on the controller started to blink and then turned into a solid white. That way Steam will manage it and you'll probably have an easier time doing this.
Because it has attracted low-quality or spam answers that had to be removed, posting an answer now requires 10 on this site the. By the way englsih isn't my native language so if I'm not clear enough please tell me. Just work your way down at the top of the list until you find the one that works for you. Here are three solutions you can try. This essentially does the same thing as pressing the reset button, but is easier. I also believe can sync it wirelessly which I just realized. But one last-ditch effort — the last one I would try — actually worked.
