[ACTIVE] Orange Light PS4 XIM4 HELP
« on: 07:53 AM - 08/14/19 »
Hi,
I have followed youtube tutorials on how to set up the xim4 and I'm having trouble, I've made sure my PS4 controller is turned off before i start, everything is in the right place. when I plug the micro usb to usb into the ps4 its completely fine but then my PS4 controller breathes an ORANGE light and then it disappears or repetitively breaths orange and when i try to turn on my PS4 controller it doesnt work. (Its fully charged and everything) Does anyone have any help or answers? (FIRMWARE IS UP TO DATE)

Welcome to the community. The orange light is your controller connecting to power and beginning to charge and XIM4 turns off the controller light. Have you added a config and if so are your peripherals working in a game?

It just doesn't turn on i press it multiple times and it doesnt turn on, my controller is fine because i tried with the same remote and wire in my playstation and i was able to turn it on.

Cannot connect to PS4
« Reply #4 on: 11:50 AM - 08/14/19 »
Hi,

I have connected the XIM4 as per the set up guide. However, my PS4 controller has an orange charging light when connected to the XIM4 and does not let me turn on the PS4 remote using the PS button. Controller works fine when not connected to the XIM4.
I have tried different micro USB cables and it still does not work.
Firmware is the latest version.
Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks, the controller light shouldn't turn on but the controller should be responsive. Are you using APEX or XIM4?

Please disconnect and reconnect XIM to the console while watching XIM's startup light sequence. Do you see 4 green lights during this sequence? This indicates controller authentication and is needed for your mouse and keyboard to work. For reference the startup light sequence should look similar to this:

red, green, blue
red
green, green, green, green
red

If you do not see 4 green lights at startup and you have spare cables please test other cables with the controller.

I tried this and saw the sequence of colours you said including 4 green lights. Ps4 controller still will not turn on the ps4 when connected to the XIM4. Any ideas?

Thanks. Is the console communication method set to USB instead of bluetooth? This is required if the controller supports it.
