Try replugging the micro USB charging cable for the PS4 controller and wait for a orange light on the controller to show up and it should sync. Otherwise try another cable as well because these are extremely finicky with the quality of the cable.

Hi,

You need to connect the controller to the PS4 first with a micro USB cable, then press the PS button. (You didnt say whether you were using a cable or not)

If that doesnt work then try a different cable: I sometimes find that not all cables work for some reason even if they charge the controller.

Hope this helps, That Tech Enthusiast

Make sure you are using a genuine PS4 controller. You can tell if your controller is an OEM version by the Playstation symbol on the PS button.

I tried everything, 3 different controllers, about 6 different cables. Wiped the hard drive and reformatted and reinstalled OS. Nothing worked. Bought a new PS4, plugged my controller in, same thing. PS button works in safe mode but not here. Got the genuine controller and cable that came with new PS4 and it worked. So it requires a genuine ps4 controller and a magic cable.

Mine is doing the same. The PS4 wont connect to anything wireless like WIFI or controllers unless they are wired to the console. I decided to factory reset the console and since it reset I cannot get past the startup screen, the controllers work on safe mode but cannot get them to work with the console as the light on the controller keeps flashing white. I have tried about 10 different cables but none of them work...Any ideas?
