    I tried everything. Using a keyboard and deleting the bluetooth settings, resetting the controller, charging it and trying it later. It works on my no problem (both bluetooth and usb) and even when my computer is turned off it just flashes blue and doesnt find anything. Does anybody have some idea what to do? I have been trying for days now

    Have you plugged it in the PS4 with a USB cable? You need to do that first to sync it with the PS4.

    @Leeful is right, also use a proper cable, not just a shitty cheap charging cable when possible.

    9/10 that is the issue: cable quality.

    Did you tried to reset joystick to factory settings by pressing small button under it?

    Did you try a different controller with your console ? It could be that the bluetooth chip itself is broken in the console instead of the controller itself. Try to pair something new to the console like some wireless headphones. Wondering why no one asked that at all. It's a more likely cullprit if it receives bluetooth signals and sends them perfectly fine to a bluetooth chip on pc.

    not to be rude, but this doesn't mean that any of the 5 were good quality cables. i've had times where multiple cables were bad just to find out that they were all just lesser quality as they worked with less strict electronics. but definitely try @Virdoo's suggestion and do a controller factory reset

    He didn't answer. Asked exactly the same thing because pretty sure the bluetooth chip was broken but guess its fixed now seeing he doesn't reply anymore to replies. Anyway good holidays dude ! Enjoy them fully

    have you tried a USB cable, and if you have its probably a different kind of one, so try to use a different one.
    this same thing happened to me, lol :)

    So, does it turn on when you pres the Playstation Button on it? I had a similar case the other day. Bought a slightly water damaged controller, and it would only connect to a PC and not the PS4. Turns out the pads on the button flex-cable was a little bit corroded, so it didn't make contact when pushing the PS button. Replacing the flex did the trick. Just make sure you order the correct flex, as there are different models.
