Use this guide to replace the 3.7 lithium-ion battery inside the DualShock 4.

  1. Using the Phillips #00 Screwdriver, remove the four 6.0 mm screws securing the rear cover to the controller.
    • Using the Phillips #00 Screwdriver, remove the four 6.0 mm screws securing the rear cover to the controller.

    • Do not forcefully loosen the screws, as it will amount to permanent damage of the threads, making removal impossible.

    Yo usé un Phillips #000, ya que el #00 quedaba grande y podía dañar el tornillo.

    • Pull down on the plier to crack open the casing.

    • Repeat these steps for the right handle.

    Shoulders are where L1/L2/R1/R2 are, not the %#*@ handles. Confusing instructions.

    Quick tip: Be VERY careful at this step not to dislodge the tiny spring attached to the L2/R2 buttons. While removing the cover, it's easy to pull off either L2/R2 button. Inadvertently pulling off either button will also remove the tiny spring as well. While not too difficult to reassemble, it's not obvious where the spring goes as the spring is almost completely hidden along the side of the button (on the inside).

    I just successfully completed analog stick replacements for two controllers. I completed the first repair without any trouble but managed to dislodge (and almost lose) the spring on the second time around. Needless to say, I spent some time trying to figure out where the spring is supposed to go (no photos of this anywhere). By sheer luck, I figured it out on my own. :)

    Good luck and take your time--especially the first time!

    Golden tip but I would add a thing or two.

    Most probably both triggers R1&R2 will stay in lower half of the pad case with springs hanging there.

    You must take them of their lower case sockets before assembly and fit them bellow L1&L2

    When you feel click when fitting them and spring works like on normal assembled pad you're done.

    If thats not the case do not try to assemble lower casing half as triggers will not work properly.

    Simon -

    if you lost the springs unfortunately, the triggers would still work but it is harder to get to the precise digital press. In other words you will have hard time to create a light press than a hard press.

    My controller broke

    Gary - 返信

    So what I seem to see a lot of sources fail to mention with this model (and promptly break without noticing) are the two plastic tabs attached to the front shell on either side of the headphone jack ; in order to properly pry that section open, all you need to do is lightly push those plastic tabs in, and the section should open up easily. That seems to be one of the main things that prevent people from prying the shell open.

    The updated models have the tabs as well, but aren’t as stubborn considering the bars between the shoulder buttons on those are inside as opposed to being a part of the shell.

    Hope this helps, and feel free to discuss, especially if you’re more familiar with the issue than me.

  3. Wedge a plastic opening tool into the case-splittings and pull down to crack open the casing near the following buttons: Share button Options button
    • Wedge a plastic opening tool into the case-splittings and pull down to crack open the casing near the following buttons:

    • Share button

    • Options button

    • Split the plastic covers of the controller apart, taking note that they will still be attached by circuit board ribbons.

    • Three small pieces are often released from the framework. To prevent loss, maintain a controlled work field.

    • 2 Trigger Springs

    • 1 Grey Reset Button Extension

    You can't just pull the casing halves apart. There is a plastic bar that is part of the casing and separates the L1 and R1 buttons from the L2 and R2 buttons. To get this loose, pull the casing outward perpendicular to the L and R buttons until you can slide the L2 and R2 buttons from behind the plastic bar.

    SO yesterday replaced the thumb stick on my controller, and now the R2 button is stuck, know any way to remedy this?

    I know you put a warning, but I lost the grey reset button extension. Any idea where to get a replacement part?

    miamiman77 - 返信

    Hey, not even sure when you wrote this, but wanted to share my solution for this problem. I lost one of my reset button rubber pieces when I was doing a different repair, and found that a standard bamboo skewer is just about the perfect diameter to function as a replacement. Just cut it to the proper length and you should be able to get it in there and get your reset functionality back.

    You don't really need it. A long paper clip will work fine.

    I've removed and changed all buttons all seemed ok but now the options and share button don't work, as in when I pressed them down there is no longer a click (bounce) I'm certain it's back in the correct place and I don't think they can be put the wrong way up, does anyone have any advice please :)

    Rachel - 返信

    My share button stopped 'clicking'. When I stripped the controller down I noticed a small copper coloured dimple on the motherboard was depressed instead of proud like the one for the options button. With bluetack I was able to pull it out but each time I tested it with my finger it clicked once and stayed depressed. I don't think there is a permanent solution to this as it's probably metal fatigue or similar so i put a tiny bit of blue tack overy the dimple so the plunger could push that bit further and hopefully pull it out each time. Seems to work as I reassemble the controller. Fingers crossed it holds out a while! I'd love to know if someone else had a different solution.

    I had an extra part, and it wasn’t gray. Thank goodness for the picture of the black one. It’s rubbery. The small end should be inserted down towards the gold colored spot. It’s next to the word RESET on the mobo.

    J Coyote - 返信

    When reassembling: If, like me, your R2/L2 buttons stayed with the bottom of the controller when you took it apart, it will be impossible to reassemble and get the tiny springs back in place.

    To remedy, remove the buttons, and attach them, with the springs correctly placed, to the top of the controller. There are two tiny grooves, one on the button, and one on the controller top, into which the spring fits.

    Jeff Human - 返信

    Jeff, we owe you a six pack for this comment.

    James Goldie -

    Thank You!! The spring came out and I looked for a way to reinsert it. So I led a thread through its opening (so it couldn´t jump away), and compressed it with pliers. So it was easy to put it in.

    Jeff, you've been a wonderfully helpful Human. Thanks for the ingenious tip.

    Something is stopping me from opening it cause it cut both by splitting tools

    Josuke Higashikata - 返信

    Mine was also really really resistant to being pried open. In the end, i did my best to loosen the entire gap at least once, then inserted along the middle bottom and used more force than i would have been comfortable with. The plastic on the edges is slightly shot now and it’s not as smooth a grip-feeling anymore, but it came apart fine and I didn’t break anything important. There is just a lot of surface for a friction fit like this and the joysticks keep pulling it back down, which in combination makes it really resilliant. In my case it also was exuberated by a minor soda spill along the right handle which ‘glued’ it together, and i imagine that can also happen just with use and ‘hand cheese’, especially on the outer edges. There is a lot of surface area to stick together there.

  4. Detach the motherboard ribbon connecting the two sides of the controller by pulling it straight out with your fingers. Note the orientation of the cable and make sure it faces the right way when you reconnect it. After the two halves are separated, place the top of the controller off to the side.

  5. Using the blunt forceps, remove the battery plug by gently rocking the forceps side-by-side to loosen the plug. After removal of the plug from the motherboard, the battery can be lifted off of the controller. Hasty removal of the battery plug could warp the plastic grips of the plug.

    For the replacement battery I found that the Turnigy 2000mAh 1S 1C Lipo w/ 2 Pin JST-PH worked perfectly while also being a budget option at only $2.54 USD before shipping. However ONLY INSTALL AFTER CHANGING THE POLARITY OF THE CONNECTOR, this can be done with a pin or craft knife with relative ease. After doing this the controller has doubled in battery life. It required no modification to the controllers internals only extra care to ensure the longer cables didn’t get pinched in reassembly.

    Got the battery detached without warping the plastic grips/ prongs, but it won't stick back to the board on reassembly. Is there an adhesive i should use?

    Ferrum Phoxx - 返信

    Ferrum Phoxx - Did you just remove the plug from the socket? By that, I mean you didn’t pull the socket it was in off of the board too? If you did pull the socket off as well, I think that would require resoldering the socket to the board first. Tricky, but someone with some soldering experience ought to be able to fix it for you.

    nowurgone - 返信

    I had trouble with analoge, I fixed that but FPC (flat connector) on mainboard broken and I soldered new 12 pin FPC on mainboard again, but in reverse!

    then I put charging cable and the dualshock did not turn on , and I sensed that the dualshock is heating up, I remove charging cable as soon as possible.

    problem is this : negative and positive putted in reverse.

    I don’t kwow what happen if I solder new FPC in right position .

    Does it work or somethings going to out of service?

    sorry formy poor English language .

    I can’t pull the connector plug out of the socket. I’ve used my fingers, I’ve tried tweezers. I’ve been rocking it for 15 minutes but it won’t come out.

The x button on my controller want working properly so I ordered new rubber mounts. I followed the guide, taking my time to make sure I didn't damage anything.

With the new rubber in place I put everything back together and the controller was working fine but now I've realised it doesn't charge. The battery goes completely dead and switches off. If I then connect it with usb cable it doesn't charge but will turn on the controller for maybe 10 seconds before switching off again.

Anyone any idea what is going on? Thanks.

Did this fix to the letter, controller works now but the light bar does not and I'm unsure if it charges. It shows it's fully charged. Could it be that the micro-usb connection is frapped?

the00brotherhood - 返信

Ok, so it shows it’s fully charged on the PS4 but the light on the controller is out if I’m reading you right. Method I would use… connect the controller to your computer with a wired cable (eliminating the PS4 from the equation).

Check Device Manager in Windows or System Report on a Mac. Does it show your controller?

Yes = USB port on controller is fine, you may have damaged the LED on it during the repair.

No = USB port may be damaged or the cable may be fried.

Your problem doesn’t seem like it would have anything to do with the USB port. If it works but with no lighting, you should be ok unless you use the controller with the PS4 camera.

Brad S -

The battery outlet got ripped off. Can it still be fixed?

nextinline3900 - 返信

Anything can be fixed. But without knowing how severe the damage is it’s hard to say how difficult it would be, although it may involve cannibalizing another controller. At this point it may be cheaper to just purchase a new Dual Shock.

Hi I have two PS 4 controller that wont charged. I had checked with all the possibilities before purchasing two new 2000 Mah replacement batterries. But after replacing the old batteries, I noticed that one of them stopped charging. I thought it had reached the capacity to the full, but to my surprise it did not work, the light is just blinking when I turned it on. I reset the unit but remmained the same !!!

Could it be the charging port got damaged ??? Kindly advice

my other controller is still charging and I have not tested it.

Wushangkehan - 返信

By the way, I plugged into the computer…the device manager did not read the presence of the PS 4 controller , could it be the USB port is damaged ???Kindly advice

I have a simple question…..I replaced my sons PS4 battery with a replacement battery and charging cable……I plugged it all back in as shown…..Now the controller is working……But the battery level on the console/tv is showing it’s charging…..But it does work…….Any idea or reason why the new battery or controller is showing charging still without being connected to the usb?

Be carefull with 2000mah batteries. I’m talking about V2 Dualshock 4. The original battery : 54mm x 35mm x 8,5 mm and 24g with the hardcase. In this space, you can’t have a 2000mah. Check the size of a true 2000mah 3,7v cell, and you will see a really bigger size. So, these replacement batteries with the same look as the original one, are fake ! If they work, because many are dead and don’t work at all, you will never have 2000mah. I found a true new 3,7v li-ion cell on Ebay, that fits perfectly, but it’s a 1500mah, and without a hardcase. I had to weld the original connector, but it fits perfectly. Not any voltage problem. So, if you need a new battery, don’t bought any hardcase version, and check the dimensions and weight.

I don’t know what way the white ribbon goes? Does the blue side go toward the battery or away?

The blue plastic thingy goes away from the battery. There are letters (maybe symbols) on the ribbon opposite of the blue plastic thingy and they are pointing toward the battery

so what happens if your controller requires a smaller insert (that is circular and not a square input [which is provided standard in the 2k mah? Same module number but different connectors?

i struggled with the reassembly; its much easier if you attach the L2 and R2 buttons to the upper half of the controller.

follow these steps:

reattach first the battery, then the cable with the blue pull tab.

then assemble the L2 and R2 buttons as follows: make sure to position the springs in their appropriate slots (especially at the hinge receptecle at the upper shell, align the spring and hinges and push it into the holder.

only then assemble the two body halfes together by first guiding the L1&2 and R1&2 buttons in their correct location. finally slightly bend the long studs into the handle grips and tighten all 4 screws.

wooghee - 返信

I can’t get the battery connector cable out of the socket. I tried to remove it for 15 minutes and it wouldn’t come out.

marcus2159 - 返信

After replacing the battery, the controller can only be used while charging with the cable.

What is the cause of this?
