Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey, i recently got my ps4 after no using it for a while and i cannot seem to connect it to my ps4

whenever i turn on the controller to try and pair it blinks white once or twice and then turns it off. I tried turning off the ps4 and then turning on my controller and then it went through the whole "cycle" . where it blinked more than 8 times trying to find a ps. It's only when i try to connect it is when it blinks once/twice and then suddenly shuts off.

Any help would be great thanks!

Have you tried hooking it up with an USB cable to the console?

My PS4 controller does that on some rare occasions and the only way I found to get it back to talking to the console is to temperory hook the controller to the console with an USB cord until the controller syncs back up. 

 

Also, there is a reset button under the L2 button.  A paperclip needs to be used to press that for 10 seconds.  That may fix the issue.

Hmmm, very odd.

 

There is the forum over on the offical Sony forums where folks been posting solutions. Maybe a solution is in there that can help:  http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/Consoles-Peripherals/PS4-Controller-Won-t-Connect-Please-Help
