Frequently Asked Questions
How to turn off PS5?
If you’re wondering how to turn off your PS5, you’re in luck.
Turning it off from the console couldn’t be any easier. Depending on whether your PS5 is standing upright or horizontally, press the lowest/leftmost button. Then hold down the Power button until you hear two beeps which indicates that the system is shutting down.
If your PS5 is too hard to get to and you want to turn it off using a DualSense controller, here’s how:
- Press the PS button in the centre of the controller to bring up the control centre.
- Navigate to the right to find the Power button icon.
- Use the X button to select the power button and scroll down to Turn off PS5.
- Once you have selected this option, the PS5 will power down.
How to connect PS5 controller?
Need to know how to connect your PS5 DualSense controller? It’s simple.
- Switch on your console and connect the DualSense controller using the included USB-C cable.
- Press the PS button on the centre of the controller and a light bar should blink at the top of the controller.
- Once the controller is working, disconnect the USB-C cable to use the controller wirelessly.
How to connect PS5 controller to pc?
The PS5 DualSense controller is one of the best out there, so it’s no wonder it’s the top choice for gaming on PCs, too.
There are two ways to connect your PS5 controller to your PC — wired and bluetooth.
- Wired: You’ll require a USB Type-C to USB-A cable for your PC, or a USB Type-C to Type-C cable if your PC has the appropriate port. Although the PlayStation 5 console includes one in the package, the standalone DualSense controller doesn’t. That’s a bit of a downer, but don’t worry. Just grab a cable, plug it in, and you’re good to go!
- Bluetooth: You’ll require a USB Bluetooth adapter (or a motherboard equipped with built-in Bluetooth). To establish a connection, access the “Bluetooth & other devices” menu on Windows by pressing the Windows key and typing “Bluetooth.” Then, select “Add Bluetooth or other device” and choose “Bluetooth” from the menu that follows. Your PC will initiate a search for available devices.
On the DualSense controller, press and hold both the PlayStation logo button and the Share button (the smaller button located to the left of the touchpad) until the LEDs surrounding the touchpad start flashing rapidly. Within a few seconds, you should see a generic entry labelled “Wireless controller” appear in your list of Bluetooth devices in Windows. Simply click on it to complete the pairing process.
Why does my PS5 keep turning off?
If your PS5 keeps turning off, you’re not alone.
It’s normal for technology to falter at times (because nothing is perfect) but if you find your PS5 turning off constantly, here are some reasons that could be causing it:
- Overheating — electronics get hot, really hot, especially if overused and not in a well-ventilated area. Ensure your PS5 console isn’t sat in direct sunlight and covered in dust or hidden behind books, curtains or anything that will trap the console in its heat. Clean off any dust (you may need to open the console to get to the fan and clean that out, too).
- Weak power connection — check that all cables and connections are properly working and not damaged. If any cables look frayed or browning, stop using them immediately. If your PS5 console is plugged in with many other electronic devices (like on an extension cord) your console may be turning off due to the other tech sucking out more power and your PS5 may not be getting enough.
- Outdated firmware — Keep your PS5 console up to date with the latest system software updates to prevent turning off randomly.
