Please Reconnect Controller

Question

sudon't

Allow me to briefly explain the problem because, based on my web searches, it may not be what you’re thinking:

 

Lately, every once in a while I’ll be playing GTA Online, (PS4), when I get a black screen message saying “Please Reconnect Controller”. The message comes from the game, not the console. My controller is certainly connected, as I can navigate around with it. I just can’t play GTA.

 

This has happened with the controller connected wirelessly, and by USB. Nothing I do to the controller affects the problem. I can reboot the console, or even just the game, and it’ll work for a while, but the issue returns. I should note that I only have one controller in the house.

 

 

The only other thing I can think of is that, recently, I created a new account on the PS4, and have been playing it. But, I am pretty sure this problem occurred before then, and I seem to remember thinking that maybe the new account wouldn’t experience the problem. But now I’m not 100% sure about that, since this seems like the kind of problem two accounts might cause. I don’t know.

 

 

Any suggestions?

Is there any chance you may check if the issue persist with different controller? I am aware that you wrote you have only one, but maybe there is a friend that could help you in need?

I’m afraid not. I really don’t think the controller is the issue, though. After all, it works everywhere except in the game. Nevertheless, I plan on buying a new controller today. If it doesn’t resolve the issue, at least I’ll have a spare.

I've had a couple of controllers do that so far. Seems to happen two or three times in 5 or 10 minutes then the problem goes away for weeks/months. No idea what's causing it but it's not the controller from what I've seen.

I agree, the problem doesn’t seem to be the controller. Could it have something to do with having two accounts? Is there a way to log out of my “main” account, so that only the second account is logged in?
