A quick pass with a wooden toothpick or compressed air may help to clean the dust interrupting the power flow if there is any because that can also prevent the controlling working ability

3. Re-pair Your Controller

You can do this by going to the Settings menu on your PS4 and under “Devices,” discard all devices from the list. Then, on your controller, use a toothpick or bobby pin and insert into the small hole on the underside of the controller and hold it for five seconds.

Lastly, re-sync the controller to the PS4 using the PS button.

Then, re-plug the PS4 back in, turn it on, and see if the issue has been fixed. 

If your controller isn’t working perfectly after trying all these tips, you may need to get a brand new one.
