Title: [Q/A] Xim4 flashing red and yellow
Post by: -holocene on 09:28 PM - 06/18/16
Hey all, I just now encountered a problem I haven't had with my xim4 before. The firmware and everything is completely updated and when I plugged everything in, instead of initializing it just keeps interchangeably flashing red and yellow and just doesn't work. Anyone know what could be causing this?

Red and yellow flashing indicates a power fault, your XIM4 is trying to draw more power than is available. It can usually be resolved by doing the following.

1) Fully charge your battery powered devices. This includes controller and other battery devices connected to XIM4.
2) Disable LED lights on your peripherals
3) Disable rumble/vibration

I noticed my PS4 controller had low battery afterwards and started to chargeit. Hopefully that was the issue. Thanks.

It could be, it's come up before with PS4 users. There are four devices being powered by your consoles single usb port, over time your controller battery will deplete and need a recharge. Please let us know how that goes.
