How to pair a DualSense wireless controller with PS5 consoles
The first time you use a controller, you'll need to pair it with your console.
1. Make sure that your PS5 console is on.
2. Connect the controller to your console using the included USB cable.
If your controller is turned off, press the PS button. After the light bar blinks, the player indicator lights up.
When your controller has enough battery life, you can disconnect the USB cable and use your controller wirelessly.
Please note, your controller can pair with only one PS5 console at a time. When you want to use your controller on another console, you'll need to pair it with that console.
You can use up to four controllers at the same time.
How to charge a DualSense wireless controller
You can check your controller battery level by selecting Accessories in the control centre.
When you connect your controller to your PS5 console with the USB cable, your controller battery starts charging. While charging, the battery icon animates.
How to charge in rest mode
To charge your controller while your console is in rest mode:
Go to Settings > System > Power Saving > Features Available in Rest Mode and set Supply Power to USB Ports to Always or 3 Hours.
When charging while your console is in rest mode, the light bar on your controller slowly blinks orange. After charging is complete, the light bar turns off.
To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not expose the console to rain or moisture
To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not place a container filled with liquids on top of the Console
To avoid electrical shock, do not open the console. Refer servicing to qualified personnel only.
Do not expose the console to cigarette smoke or dust
When setting up the console, avoid places subject to excessive cigarette smoke or dust. Cigarette smoke residue or dust build-up on internal components such as the lens, may cause the console to malfunction.
Do not touch the console connections
Do not touch the metal parts or insert foreign objects into the console or the console connections.
If the console or the disc is brought directly from a cold location to a warm one, moisture may condense inside the console or on the disc. Should this occur, the console may not operate correctly. In this case, store the device in a dry area until the moisture has evaporated (this could take several hours).
Do not subject the console to violent physical shock
Do not throw or drop the console or its accessories, and do not knock the console or its accessories against other objects. When carrying the console, do not subject it to any type of violent physical shock.
This may damage the disc or cause the console to malfunction.
Avoid damaging the exterior of the console
Do not apply solvents, and do not place any rubber or vinyl materials on the surface of the console for an extended period of time. Doing so may damage the plastic surface or cause the paint to peel off.
Cleaning the exterior of the console
When cleaning the exterior of the console, be sure to turn off the power and disconnect the AC power plug from the electrical socket. Use a dry cloth: do not use abrasive pads, detergents, scouring powders, solvents (e.g. Alcohol, gasoline, paint thinner or benzene), or other liquid or aerosol cleaners.
Never disassemble the console
There are no user-serviceable components inside the console. Additionally, there is a risk of exposure of (laser) radiation as well as electrical shock hazard.
Do not place the console in an unstable location
Ensure you place the console on a surface that is flat, level and stable. Allow all four feet/stand of the console to be in contact with the surface.
Prevent the console from overheating
Do not block any ventilation openings on the console or power supply. Do not place the console or power supply on a bed sofa or other soft surface that may block ventilation openings. Do not place the console or power supply in a confined space, unless the space is well ventilated.
Do not place the console or power supply near any heat sources, such as radiators, heat registers, stoves or amplifiers.
Do not leave the console in a car with its windows closed (particularly in summer) as this may warp the exterior of the console or cause the console to malfunction
