While playing on your PS4, you must have had some rotation issues in some games. Normally this is more pronounced in FPS titles, as you can’t really aim at the enemy, which is beyond annoying. It may be that one of the joysticks on your controller is broken or has problems, but you may also need to calibrate He is I send in you PS4but do you know how it can be done?
All brands, without exception, have problems calibrating their controls for their consoles. No one is safe and in many cases these problems have no solution as such other than to change the complete joystick or even its electronics. But luckily the vast majority are solved simply by calibrating said controller and on PS4 it’s no different, but it’s a bit more complex process than we think.
How to Calibrate a PS4 Controller in Just 5 Minutes
First we disconnect the console from the power supply and leave the controller with battery and without the cable plugged in, as it is necessary so as not to interfere with the process. Now we take control and turn it. Next to the left trigger we have a small holewhich will require something pointed and of medium length to squeeze.
When we have it at hand, we will press it for six seconds continuously, which will tell the remote control that we want to calibrate it from there and individually. The next step is to press and hold the two joysticks called L3 and R3 which we normally play with.
The pulse must again be uninterrupted for 30 secondswhich will activate the next step of the calibration, because so far we are only checking that the controller enters this test mode to later save data for both axes for each joystick.
Two turns for full calibration
The next step is quite simple, but you have to do it very well. And it is that you have to turn the two joysticks R3 and L3 in the direction counterclockwise up to 5 times, that is, you need to do 5 rounds counterclockwise.
After that you need to do the same but clockwise. We insist that you do this as accurately as possible, without the joystick wandering off the edges of its natural rotation, as that would add a bigger problem of lack of precision, so that’s something we have to take our time to get right. , since there is no time limit.
Once done, we leave the command, we connect the console and we plug in said command using its cable and we start playing the game that gave us the most trouble. If none of this works then we definitely need to take the controller for repair where a technician will see if it is possible to change the joystick as such or if it needs more repair and even s it is possible to fix it, because there are not a few PS4 controllers that had to be replaced.
