So I had an issue where my ps4 controller (newer version) wasn’t charging at all so I changed the battery and charge ports with easy using help from a guide and tech videos. But upon bringing the controller to life again and holding it I noticed the controller getting hot in my hand.
Then it suddenly turned off…
I opened it back up to check it out unplugging everything that I replaced and checking it piece by piece. The usb at first seemed to be fine so I plugged the battery back in and once again it gets very hot on the board. I unplugged the battery and tested the USB port (after the main board cooled) and that also caused the board to heat up again. I’m sure that it’s overheating as (from what I’ve read) the controller has a sensor that shuts it off if it gets too hot much like the console and this is what keeps happening to me.
The heat is originating from the center black chip and spreading throughout the controllers main board I think. Is this fixable or should I just get a new controller if possible?
