Problem Solution

PS5 controller does not charge

  • If the PS5 controller does not charge, check the capacitors around the DA9087 chip, if they are short-circuited replace the DA9087 power management chip.

Drifting analog sticks[edit | edit source]

Problem Solution

Controller analog drift

(move by itself in-game)

  • There are four pots, two for each analogue. They should be cleaned first and if they are used up, then replaced, the whole analogue with the mechanism can be changed or only the pot.
  • See Fig. 1.

Controller does some things alone (in the game it enters the inventory itself or the character jumps)

  • clean the contacts on the board and foil and add some material like foam under the foil.
  • See Fig 3, 4, & 5.
