How To Reset Your PS5 Controller

There might be times when your PS5 controller is acting up and won’t even connect to the console or other devices. Since you can’t connect it, you cannot correct whatever problem you’re facing.

But you can reset the PS5 controller and make it useable again. A hard reset basically resets the settings and deletes cached data on the controller.

To do this all you need is the controller and a pin or SIM ejector tool. The controller also needs to be charged for this to work perfectly.
