The release of the PS5 is just around the corner, and with it comes a new and improved version of the DualShock controller. This time around, there’s no need to worry about connecting your controller to the console with a USB cable–the PS5 comes with a Bluetooth adapter that lets you do just that!
Here’s how to connect your PS5 controller to your PS5 console.
Before You Start
Make sure your PS5 controller is fully charged before starting. To connect your controller, you will need a USB cable. The cable can be plugged into the front or back of the PS5 console, but it will work the same either way.
Once you have the cable plugged in, your PS5 console should automatically detect it and you will see the PlayStation controller icon on the screen.
If your console doesn’t detect the controller, try restarting your console and unplugging and replugging the USB cable.
Connecting A Ps5 Controller Wirelessly
To connect your PS5 controller wirelessly, first make sure the controller is turned on. Next, hold down the PS button on the controller and the power button on the console at the same time for about 3 seconds.
The PS5 controller will start flashing. Once it does, release both buttons and wait for the connection to be established. It can take up to 30 seconds for the connection to be fully established, so don’t panic if it doesn’t happen immediately.
Connecting A Ps5 Controller With A USB Cable
To connect your PS5 controller using a USB cable, you’ll need to find a USB port on your PS5 console. Once you’ve located the USB port, insert the USB end of the cable into the port and firmly press it in until it clicks.
Next, locate the other end of the cable and plug it into the input port located on the back of your PS5 controller. Once plugged in, you should see the controller’s lightbar turn white. If everything is connected correctly, you’re now ready to start playing!
After You Finish
Once you’re done, be sure to properly store your controller. Make sure the charging cable is disconnected and wrap the cable around the controller. You can store the controller in its carrying case or a drawer—just don’t leave it out in the open where it could easily be damaged.
If you’re having trouble connecting your PS5 controller to your console, don’t worry, you’re not alone. Many people have reported this issue and there are a few things you can do to troubleshoot it. First, make sure your controller is charged. If it’s not, connect the charging cable and let it charge for a few hours.
Once it’s charged, try connecting it to your console again. If that doesn’t work, try resetting your console. Unplug the console from the power source and wait for 30 seconds before plugging it back in. Once it’s turned on, try connecting your controller again.
If that still doesn’t work, there might be something wrong with your console and you’ll need to contact Sony for support.
