I bought a DS4 v2 from a friend and he threw in a faulty DS4 JDM-001 in as well since he know I fixed a few already.
The controller’s dpad and L1 don’t work - I figured it’s the conducive film which I ordered and will replace when it gets here.
The other problem is odd. When I plug the controller in, it works, responds to commands and charges the battery, but there is no LED light. As soon as I unplug it, the LED turns on and glows as if the controller is charging - which it isn’t. I can’t leave it in standby like that because the LED drains the battery dead. I replaced the USB port and ribbon cable which did not help.
What’s my next step?
Thank you everyone in advance for your time and help.
