So my sons' PS4 controller keeps switching off randomly. Thought it was U/S so got another one but that's doing the same.

Any ideas please?

    Dumb question. Have you tried doing a hard reset on the console?

    Not dumb at all. No...TBH I didn't know it could be hard reset as I'm PC only (and he's only 13 so wouldn;t have a scooby).

    Do you know if he'll lose anything? Downloaded games etc.?

    Nope. Just don’t do a factory reset. Lol.

    I hard reset my Xbox on fairly often. I did it a couple of times when I had a PS4.

    It’s like hard rebooting your phone.

    It usually corrects random issues.

    Soft reset: hold power button for 10 seconds.

    Hard reset: unplug all cables for at least 30 seconds.

    Again, corrects a lot of issues.
