So i am now on my 2nd dual shock 4 and from what it seems the controller is garbage I thought maybe I received a rare bad controller out the box that had a button sticking problem and to my surprise after only an hour of using the second brand new controller my L1 button has begun to stick hmm!!!!!!!! I never had any problems with any dual shock controller before until now sad thing is all I play is Fifa and a sticking L1 button makes playing beyond miserable!!!!! So my question is how many of you guys are experiencing the same problems???
Considering the L1 buttons are the same as the R1 buttons, it's probably safe to say something on your left hand is contaminating the buttons.
Perhaps some left over pb&j? Maybe you're a southpaw? I don't know. My buttons are fine though if that helps at all.
I have the same problem. My R1 is sticking. I googled it and it seems that many people have the same problem.
i called sony and they want me to pay for shipping the controller ot sony, be without a controller for 1-2 seeks while they send me a replacement.
I will simply go ahead and return my PS4 to the retail store..This is non sense from sony..shame on you SONY
I found a YouTube video which explains how you can fix the problem. Seems fairly easy but still Sony should have tested their controllers better or something.
Here's the link:
I've also had two controllers with this problem, a sticking L1 button. It also is when playing FIFA, so it's likely that there's a problem with the DS4 not being able to handle quick and repetive L1 pressing.
The first controller I had, the one that came with the system, started sticking after 3-4 days. The second controller started sticking after two days.
This is a terrible, sad, and and extremely annoying problem, and it's ridiculous that Sony is asking us to pay shipping for replacements.
The first time I had a problem with the dual shock it was with the out of box one then best buy swapped it out for a new one and now I'm on my third controller I hope this one is a keeper lol!!!
