The convenience of having Wireless controls are limitless, although to enjoy those benefits, obviously, you will first need to know how to properly sync a PS4 controller – it’s simpler than you think.

Get a USB cable

Pairing a PlayStation 4 DualShock controller with a PS4 is extremely easy, but it requires a hardware component: a USB cable. There is no wireless solution for pairing controls via Bluetooth, so to sync new controls to your PS4, you will need a cable. The DualShock 4 comes with a built-in cable, but any USB 2.0 Micro-B cable will do. Connect the USB cable to the controller or controller, then to the USB port on the PlayStation 4.

Turn on the PS4

When you turn on the PS4, your controller will automatically connect with the PlayStation thanks to the USB cable. You’ll need to press the PlayStation button in the center of the controller to turn it on, and when you do, the PS4 will take you to the login screen to choose a player account associated with that controller. You will be able to tell that the controller is working because the LED light bar at the top of the controller will turn blue (or another color, if it is not the first controller connected: red for Player 2, green for Player 3, and pink for player 4). That wire will charge your controller as well, with the light lit yellow when the controller is charging but not turned on.

Make sure the remote is charged

When you encounter issues with a controller not working wirelessly with your console, a common problem with pairing is that the controller is insufficiently charged. And if you suspect that may be the problem, unplug it and then plug it in again.

Make sure the controller is charging when you connect it; When you are not using it, you will see the light bar at the top turn yellow. If it’s not charging, you may have another problem or a faulty cable.

If your pairing problems are not related to power or cable, you may need to restart both the controller and the PlayStation 4 to pair them again.

Once this is done, you should be able to simply connect the controller with the USB cable to link it back to the console, as mentioned at the beginning of this guide.

Do a hard reset on your controller

If the new controller pairing doesn’t work, the problem could be the controller itself and not the PS4. In that case, you will need to restart the controller. You will need an unfolded paper clip (or something similarly thin and sturdy) with which to press a hidden button on your PS4 to reset it.

Now, turn off your PS4 and unplug it, as well as your Internet router or modem, so that your controller does not receive any network signal when you restart it. When you’re done, flip the controller over and look for a small hole on the right side. Push the paperclip into the hole and press for the next three to five seconds. Best to hold down for a count of 10 to be safe.

When you’ve done that, reconnect both your router and your PS4. Turn on the PS4, then connect your controller to the USB cable. That should re-pair the control from scratch. If it doesn’t work, the controller may be faulty.

Alternative: connect via USB only
