If your PS4 DualShock Controller is having the drifting joystick problem which is common—automatically moving without touch, becomes stuck once touched—use this guide to repair the issue without any soldering, which many people may not have experience in.

The controller will have to be dismantled completely so that the left joystick can be cleaned and worked on. This simple repair with minimal knowledge is an easy fix. P.S. the gloves are not required to wear when the controller is being worked on.

  1. Remove the four 6.0 mm screws on the back shell of the PS4 controller using the Phillips #00 screwdriver.

  4. Remove the battery connector from the motherboard by pressing the two sides and pulling on the connecter in an upwards direction. Be careful not to rip the black or red cables from the connector while removing the cables. Be careful not to rip the black or red cables from the connector while removing the cables.

    • Use the flathead screwdriver to pry open the green chambers by sticking the tip of the flathead screwdriver in between the gap and pushing inwards.

    • Pry open very gently so the green chambers do not snap/break away from the circuit board.

  9. Once the chambers are open, use tweezers to grab and remove the white disk from each of the chambers. Take a Q-tip and dip it in some 90% isopropyl alcohol. Use the soaked Q-tip to clean the chambers thoroughly.
