If you want to connect a PS4 controller to your computer, you have two options: you can use the official PlayStation USB cable that comes with the PS4 console or you can purchase an external Bluetooth adapter. To use Bluetooth, you need to first install it on your computer and then connect the controller to the adapter.
How to sync a PS4 controller
In order to sync your PS4 controller wirelessly, you’ll need to follow a few simple steps. First, you’ll need to go to Settings, which is represented by a briefcase icon. From there, click on Bluetooth Devices. Your controller should now be listed. If it isn’t, simply hold down the PS button and press the Share button at the same time for five seconds.
If you don’t have a bluetooth or USB adapter, you can connect your controller using a wired cable. This wire will need to be plugged into the PS4 console’s USB port. Next, you’ll need to press and hold the PS button for five seconds to enable the PS4 controller to recognize it.
Resetting a PS4 controller
If you are unable to connect your controller to your PlayStation 4 console through USB or Bluetooth, you can reset it using a paper clip or small piece of metal. To reset the controller, insert the paper clip or metal piece into the small hole located on the back of the controller. Then, hold it there for about five seconds. Your controller should now be reset and ready for use. After this, connect your controller to the PS4 button to play your games.
If you are unable to connect your controller through USB or Bluetooth, you may need to reset it manually. To do this, you need to go into Settings and select Bluetooth Devices. Highlight the controller in the list and press the Options button. If you do not have a paper clip, insert a straightened paperclip into the small hole on the back of the controller. If the controller still does not work after performing these steps, you can contact Sony for assistance.
Using a wireless dongle
If your PlayStation controller does not connect to your PC via USB or Bluetooth, you may be able to connect it using a wireless dongle. However, you’ll need to first connect the PS4 to your wireless network. If the controller is recognized but cannot be connected to the computer, try restarting your PS4 and computer.
You can also use a USB cable to connect your PS4 controller to your PC, but this can cause a tethering problem. To fix this problem, you need to download a software called Driver Easy, which will scan your computer for missing or corrupt drivers and automatically download them for you. The software will also allow you to calibrate your controller and set the color of its front LEDs.
Using a wired controller
If you want to connect your PlayStation 4 controller without USB or Bluetooth, you can do so via a wired cable. This cable is provided with the console. Plug the USB end of the wired controller into the USB port of your computer. Another option is to use an external Bluetooth adapter to connect your controller wirelessly to your computer. To connect a wireless controller, first install the appropriate software on your computer and connect the controller to it.
If you are using a wired controller, you can also pair it with your PS4. In order to pair a wireless controller with your PS4 console, hold the PS and SHARE buttons simultaneously for about 5 seconds. Once the Bluetooth connection is set up, the controller will appear in the Bluetooth Devices screen. You can now play your games with it.
Using a wireless controller
If your wireless PS4 controller is not connecting to your computer, you can use a wireless USB adapter to connect your controller. Make sure your PS4 and controller are connected to the same wireless network. If the problem persists, try restarting your PS4 and computer. This may solve the problem.
Before you connect your wireless PS4 controller to your PC, make sure your Bluetooth is turned on. To do this, press Windows Key + Q to open the Bluetooth settings on your computer. Once you have enabled Bluetooth, you can connect the controller to your PC.
