    The item works flawlessly. I bought it as a gift for my fiancé overseas and didn’t get a chance to test anything out until 2 weeks after making the purchase. So far so good!

PS4 Controller Not Working? How to Fix the Most Common Issues

Most of the time, your DualShock 4 controller probably works fine. But when your PlayStation 4 controller isn’t responding or disconnects randomly, it’s frustrating.

Let’s look at fixes for when your PS4 controller is not working, so you can get back to playing.

PS4 Controller Won’t Connect or Pair

Normally, when you press the PS Button on your controller, it should turn on and connect to your system. However, when it’s not connecting, you’ll instead see the light bar on your controller flash for a bit, then turn off.

This often happens if you’ve used your DualShock 4 with another console, since the PS4 controller tries to connect to the last device you used it with. For instance, if you use the controller for Steam on your PC or with a friend’s console, it will remember that device and try to connect to it the next time you turn the controller on.

In these cases, you’ll need to re-pair your DualShock 4 with your own PS4. To do this, connect your controller to your PS4 using a micro-USB cable (see our guide to USB cable types if you’re not familiar with these). Make sure you’re using a high-quality cable that you know works properly.

Once your controller is physically connected to your console, press the PS Button on your controller for a moment, and its light should flash briefly before turning blue (or another solid color if you already have a controller connected). This signifies that your PS4 controller has paired and connected successfully.

If you have your DualShock 4 paired with another nearby device, like your phone or a PlayStation 5, trying to re-pair it to your PS4 may turn on the other device and connect the controller to it. You should thus turn off and unplug whatever other device your DualShock 4 is paired to first.

After you re-pair your controller, you can disconnect the USB cable and use your controller wirelessly as normal. Your PS4 will remember it until you pair the controller with another device in the future, so it should auto-connect as soon as you press the PS Button.

Keep in mind that the maximum number of DualShock 4 controllers you can have connected to the PS4 at once is four. If you already have four controllers connected, you’ll need to disconnect one to make room for more.

PS4 Controller Keeps Disconnecting

If your DualShock 4 disconnects randomly while playing, there are a couple of remedies you can try.

First, make sure your controller battery is charged. It sounds simple, but if the battery in your controller is almost dead, it may disconnect. To check your controller battery life, hold the PS Button to bring up the Quick Menu on the left side of the screen. You’ll see a controller icon with battery life displayed at the bottom.

Plug your controller into your PS4 (or a wall outlet) and visit the Quick Menu again to make sure you see the battery charging animation. After your controller charges for some time, try using it as normal.

If the battery wasn’t causing your PS4 controller issue, make sure you aren’t trying to use your controller too far away from your system. The typical range for Bluetooth is around 30 feet; depending on your setup, you may be able to use your controller further than this, or be restricted to using it closer.

Speaking of this, you should try to minimize interference between your controller and console. Remove any metal objects between the two, like shelving or laptops, that could inhibit the signal. You should also take your PS4 out of enclosed spaces, if applicable, for better signal transmission and reception.

Finally, remember that the PS4 has a setting that turns off controllers after they’re idle for some time. If you don’t want your PS4 controller to turn off when you’re watching media apps like YouTube, go to Settings > Power Save Settings > Set Time Until Controllers Turn Off and choose Never. Note that this will use up the controller battery even while you’re idle.

General Fixes When Your PS4 Controller Isn’t Working

We’ve looked at specific fixes for a few common DualShock 4 problems above. Next, let’s look at more general solutions for problems with PS4 controllers. Walk through these if your PS4 controller is still not responding.

1. Restart Your Console

While most controller issues stem from the controller itself, there’s a chance that your PS4 is what’s having the problem. To rule this out, you should restart your console before troubleshooting further.

If your controller is working enough to access menus, hold the PS Button to open the Quick Menu, then go to Power > Restart PS4 to reboot your system.

In case your controller isn’t cooperating, press and hold the Power button on your PS4 console until you hear two beeps. This will fully shut it down—once it’s powered off (with no lights on the front), press the Power button again to turn it back on. If you see an orange light, your system went into Rest Mode, which isn’t a full shutdown.

Try using your controller again after a reboot (connecting it via a USB cable if needed) and see if that helps.

2. Forget and Re-Pair Your PS4 Controller

If you have a second PS4 controller (or a PS Move controller for PS VR), you can use that to access a menu that lets you delete the controller having an issue. Head to Settings > Devices > Bluetooth Devices and select the DualShock 4 entry—it’s the one that does not have a green light next to it.

On the resulting menu, press the Options button on your controller and choose Forget Device. This will cause your PS4 to remove it from memory so you have to pair it again.

This is a good time to try a slightly different pairing method: having your PS4 controller re-pair at startup. To do this, fully turn off your PS4 (as explained earlier). Once it’s shut down, connect the problematic controller to your console with a USB cable. Hit the PS Button on the controller to hopefully turn on and pair your controller in one process.

If this doesn’t work, turn your PS4 back on and try pairing it the normal way, as above.

3. Hard Reset Your PS4 Controller

If removing and re-pairing the controller didn’t work, you can next try the full reset procedure for the DualShock 4. You’ll need a small pointed object, like a bent paper clip or a SIM card ejection tool, to do this. This won’t reset anything on your PS4 or affect your controller aside from having to pair it again, so it’s a non-intrusive troubleshooting step.

Fully turn off your PS4, then flip your controller over. You’ll see a small hole next to the screw by the L2 button (on the right side of the controller when flipped over). Use your pointed tool to press and hold the button inside this hole for roughly five seconds.

Once you’ve done this, connect your controller to your PS4 again via USB cable and see if it pairs successfully.

4. Try Connecting the PS4 Controller Elsewhere

At this point, if you haven’t already, you should try connecting the PS4 controller that’s having problems to another device. If you have similar problems when using the PS4 controller on a PS5, your PC, or a smartphone, then your controller is likely faulty.

It’s also a good idea to try using another PS4 controller with your console, if possible. If you borrow a friend’s DualShock 4 that you know works properly and find that it has issues with your system, something is probably wrong with your PS4’s wireless connectivity.

5. Use the Controller in Wired Mode

Before you give up on your PS4 controller, you should try playing with it permanently connected via a USB cable and telling your PS4 not to use the wireless Bluetooth connection. However, keep in mind that this only works for the revised model of the PS4 controller. You’ll know you have this model if the light bar is visible inside the touchpad on the front of your controller. If not, you have an older controller and can’t force wired communication.

To force your PS4 to connect controllers over USB with a compatible DualShock 4, head to Settings > Devices > Controllers > Communication Method and choose Use USB Cable. This will prevent the DualShock 4 from using Bluetooth when it’s connected via a USB cable.

If this works, you should get a long USB cable so you can still enjoy gaming from the couch even when wired in. Ailun’s three-pack of 10-foot micro-USB cables is a good cost-effective option.

DualShock 4 Hardware Fix Options

Like most hardware, DualShock 4 controllers have a one-year warranty. If you bought your PS4 controller within the last year and it’s still not working after all the above tips, you should visit PlayStation’s Repairs page to put in a request for repair on your controller.

If your PS4 controller isn’t working in a game, one of its buttons could be stuck and thus overriding the others. Some people have fixed this by smacking the controller against their leg or a table. While this might free up anything stuck inside your controller, take care not to hit it too hard and cause further issues.

Otherwise, you can attempt hardware fixes on your own by opening your controller. If you’ve gotten this far and still can’t fix the problem, chances are that something inside your controller is jammed or disconnected. But depending on the specific issue, this may be difficult or impossible. We recommend speaking to a local repair technician if you don’t feel comfortable doing this yourself.

PS4 Controller Issues, Patched Up

Now you know how to fix the most common PS4 controller issues. More specific problems, such as a button that stops working, unfortunately fall under the hardware fix solutions mentioned above. You may be able to fix minor issues by following YouTube tutorials, but be careful not to further damage your controller in the process.

Hopefully, your DualShock 4 issue was easy to fix. But if not, and you need to pick up a new PS4 controller, you have plenty of great options.

How to connect PS4 controller to PC

PlayStation 4Gaming peripherals and hardware


There is nothing better than a gamepad to control some games. Therefore, many gamers even on PC prefer to use the controller for PS4. There is a lot of debate about which is better – a gamepad or a keyboard and mouse. It is perhaps impossible to give a definite answer to this question, but the controller gives a completely different style of play, which many players find more accessible.

But while the Xbox One controllers are plug-and-play compatible with Windows PCs, the same cannot be said for the DualShock 4. In this guide, we’ll cover several ways to connect a PS4 controller to a PC.

Wired connection

If you need a wired connection to a PC, you just need to connect the controller. Below we will look at how to configure the appropriate programs so that the computer immediately recognizes it.

Bluetooth connection

If you want to connect your DualShock controller to your PC via Bluetooth, you will need to complete some additional steps. First, make sure that your computer supports such a connection.

Some desktop computers (but not all) and most laptops currently have a Bluetooth module. If your PC doesn’t have its own Bluetooth module, you’ll need a USB dongle to connect your DualShock controller. Sony makes its own dongle, which will make the process much easier if you’re willing to pay a little more, but in principle any will do.

After purchasing a Bluetooth dongle, connect it to your computer and make sure it works properly.

Depending on the model, it may be plug-and-play, come with its own application, or require drivers to be installed. If your computer has built-in Bluetooth, just turn it on.

Next, make your DualShock 4 controller visible to other devices by simultaneously holding down the PS and Share buttons for three seconds. When the light bar at the top of the controller flashes, it will indicate that other devices can detect it.

Then open the section Bluetooth and other devices from menu Start . Find the item related to the wireless controller and select it. If asked for a code, enter 0000 . After that, the controller should be ready to work. The following sections will cover the configuration of the respective applications.

Steam connection

Steam has been supporting DualShock 4 controllers (and any configurations) since 2016. As part of this support, you can use the controller both on the Steam platform itself and on any game in your Steam library. But keep in mind that the presence of Steam will not allow you to use the DualShock 4 in games that are not in the service. This will be covered in the next section.

Here’s what you need to connect your DualShock 4 to your computer using Steam:

  • Computer with Steam installed
  • DualShock 4 Controller
  • Micro USB cable or Bluetooth connection

Before connecting the controller for the first time, you need to enable DualShock 4 support in the Steam settings. Similarly, you can also activate support for your own Xbox One controller and controller there.

Open Steam. Then open menu Steam in the upper left corner of the screen.

Open section Settings .

Go to Controller and press the button Basic settings of controller .

After that, when you connect the controller to the computer, Steam should immediately recognize it. If it doesn’t, restart Steam, this should fix the problem.

Connecting via DS4Windows

If you don’t plan to use your DualShock 4 controller on Steam, there are some additional steps you need to take. Since Windows does not natively support DualShock 4, you need to install a program called DS4Windows to connect it.

Go to and click the Download Now button .

You will be taken to a page in GitHub. Download the latest version of the file .

Once the file has downloaded, extract its contents and run the DS4Windows application. Choose where to install the program, in Appdata or your own folder in Program Files.

After installing the program, a small screen with instructions will appear. Install the necessary drivers and follow the instructions in the application.

Next you will see this window. In it, you can manage the program, the connection of controllers and other parameters.

Basically, DS4Windows works by telling your computer to think your DualShock controller is an Xbox One controller. The program already has a button mapping, but if desired, it can also be configured in the Profiles section.

DS4Windows also provides much more customization options, for example:

  • Naming different controller profiles
  • Own macros
  • Controller backlight setting
  • Vibration change
  • Low battery warning

The only function of the DS4Updater that comes with DS4Windows, you might guess, is to keep the application up to date. To do this, you just need to run DS4Updater, but this is not required immediately.

Additional information

There are a couple more things to keep in mind when connecting a PS4 controller to a PC. First, headphone jacks on DualShock 4 controllers on PC are not supported.
