If your current controller isn’t working, you can get this replacement controller to continue playing. To start, on your PS4 controller, press and hold the power button for seven seconds. When you hear the second beep, release the button and your controller will turn off. Press the power button on the PS4

If you release the power button before the second beep, your controller will go into sleep mode instead, so be sure to do this correctly.
