Step 1: Start by turning off your PlayStation 4 console. Make sure it's completely powered down before proceeding to the next step.
Step 2: Locate the small reset button on the back of your PS4 controller. It's a tiny hole that you'll need a small pin or paperclip to press.
Step 3: Take your pin or paperclip and gently insert it into the reset button hole. Press and hold the button for about 5 seconds.
Step 4: While still holding the reset button, connect your PS4 controller to the console using a USB cable. Make sure the other end of the cable is plugged into one of the USB ports on your PlayStation 4.
Step 5: Keep holding the reset button for another 5 seconds, then release it.
Step 6: Your PS4 controller should now be in pairing mode. On your PlayStation 4 console, go to the "Settings" menu and select "Devices" followed by "Bluetooth Devices."
Step 7: In the Bluetooth Devices menu, you should see your PS4 controller listed. Select it to pair it with your console.
Step 8: Once the pairing process is complete, your PS4 controller should be reset and ready to use again. Test it out by navigating through the PlayStation 4 menu or playing a game.
That's it! You've successfully reset your PS4 controller. If you're still experiencing issues, you may want to try charging the controller or checking for any firmware updates.
