It is not new, I have it since when I bought the ps4 5 years ago, and I don't think it's battery was drained, I played last night for 2 hours and the controller was connected to the ps4 the whole time.
So today I connected my ps4 controller to the ps4, the controller light turned orange/yellow and then nothing happens. The controller won't turn on and won't connect to the ps4. I tried the hard reset button below the L2 button but it didn't help. Is my controller faulty and I require a new one?
