    does the controller work if you put system in Safe Mode and connect it via USB cable (see if it charges and if you can navigate the safe mode menu)?

    There's a little hole behind the DS4 controller, press the button inside of it with a needle or a toothpick and resync your controller again with your PS4.

    Umm plug it into something else? When you plug into ps4 does the controller charge?
    When you plug it into other stuff does it also charge?

    Did you try deleting your controller from the devices settings from PS4's settings and syncing it again?
    Try another USB cable.

    if it works in Safe Mode, you have either corrupted firmware in NOR Flash chip, or failure of the BT/Wi-Fi module, both are repairable, but you need special tools (for reading/writing firmware from NOR flash chip) and quite a bit of knowledge to fix this. I do this sort of repair, if you need help in sorting this out, send me PM here or on ebay: https://goo.gl/xXEtmw

    there is no such setting in PS4, it always uses Bluetooth to communicate with controller, regardless if it's connected via USB or not in OS, only in Safe Mode it uses USB, that's why it worked for him there. Also, if firmware portion of the flash is corrupted, it won't allow you to reinstall - it will give you Software Update error message, or if Bluetooth module is defective, then updating firmware won't do anything, it still won't sync after update

    by default the system is set to communicate using Bluetooth, so he can't get to this menu, because controller won't sync now (and won't respond when connected via USB) when his system is in OS

    have you tried the SHARE+PS Button combo to sync from the bluetooth devices screen?

    delete all the other bluetooth devices rom that screen first, then press and hold SHARE + PS button on the unsynced controller

    it will blink MORE QUICKLY than a normal connection blink and hopefully appear in the bluetooth menu. then you use the already connected controller to accept sync


    EDIT sorry i should state you need 1 other controller already synced to use this method

    should've started your own thread, since this thread is three years old, but I'll try to help. were you using a ps4 exploit? sometimes you'll get a kp and the controller won't sync then.
