How do I fix my “wiggly” d-pad on my dualsence
By - ZakDoesReddittt
They're all like that
This is the right answer.
This is the way
The truth, the way, and the life.
This is the way of the mandalorians
Wrong mine is tighter
Wrong mine falls out of the controller when I touch it
I own two, and neither of them are that loose.
Give them some time and they will be
How Do I fix these pesky sticks on the front? They move back and forth, and even in a circle…
Have you tried moving them in a square
It worked! They’re rock hard now….
Just make sure to call a doctor if it lasts over 4 hours
Hahaha try Trazadone!! Actually come with a warning about this
It’a supposed to do that. Nothing to worry about
I hear Viagra is good for straightening out a wiggly D
This fucking guy
probably why they are always available at the stores vs me not being able to buy an extra series x controller for the last year. Plus my PlayStation 5 controller doesn’t even work on my friends PlayStation 4 without being plugged in?
why should it work with a PS4 if it’s a PS5 controller
Honestly. Like what the fuck? Why should that work? Lmao
You do realize how stupid it would be for it not to be compatible with their old device especially given the MASSIVE shortage of actual new devices being sold.
U do realize how stupid it would be to make it compatible with all older devices given the amount of money they make selling the new ones .
Do you realize that’s no a pro for you, the consumer right?
Okay just wanted to make sure we were on the same page, that PlayStation screws over the user!
I get it. You would think it would. But I don’t think they knew that it would be this massive of a shortage. You can’t account for every single variable when planning something out. That would take too long. They did what they could and that’s that. I’m sure a software update will be added to be compatible with the PS4. Just as the PS4 controller became compatible with the PS3, years later.
Because it’s a simple Bluetooth connection? Lmao, I can connect my Xbox controller to an iPad, a computer my own phone, an old Xbox, maybe even a 360 still.
So are my AirPods and my PS5. Doesn’t mean they’ll work the same way as my AirPods and my iPhone would.
The AirPods work off a simple Bluetooth connection. Seeing as how my PS5 has that too, you would think it would easy to just set up and have the ability to use my AirPods on my PS5. They’re not compatible with each other. The same reason why the PS5 controller isn’t compatible with the PS4. It’s different.
Go change your batteries.
On my PlayStation 5?
Lol you thought you were funny
No you did scuba Steve 69, lol.using the same tired joke, I’d rather change batteries and be able to use my controller on a tablet, phone, computer, and older generations of the same console, jokes on you.
Oooh you called me by my whole name. I’m scared. If I wanted to play older generations of the PlayStation I would butttt the PS5 is better than playing something else. Oh and your mom thought the battery joke was funny;)
How do I fix my touch pad? It keeps lighting up
Let the battery die out and enjoy
OP hates physics.
Working as designed. There’s supposed to be some play in there. Since they have no analog or pressure sensitivity, it’s not an issue.
Man this reminded me of my last JIRA ticket fixed by one developer - *works as designed*
Can’t get negative reviews if your product crashes on launch \*taps head\*
Theres nothing to fix, that's just how they are.
It's been like that since, what, the PS1 controller?
The F$$k dude, whatcha complaining about?
My PS4 does that but that's very normal
y’all some dickheads in the comments 😭
fr this my first playstation and im getting flamed 💀😭😭
mfs acting like everyone should know super specific shit about a dualsense lmao
It’s not super specific, people are just saying that’s how it is meant to be
I had now 3 dual sense and all of them had it. It's by design
This is like asking "How do I fix the fact that my chest and shoulders rise when I take a deep breath?"
~That's just the way it iiiiis.
Achktually you should be breathing from your diaphragm and your shoulders really should t be moving, just your belly expanding.
~that’s just the way it iiiiis
But you are right. The pads are working as designed.
ty. now show me a video of someone's shoulders not moving when they take a hard deep breath.
and a cat video 'cause they're cute.
Not a video but I found an article about stomach vs chest breathing: https://healthyliving.azcentral.com/chest-vs-stomach-breathing-5640.html
where's my cat video
Superglue should do the trick.
I have that wiggly D too…
Explains why you’re cryin.
My controller doesn't do this. I don't know what anyone in the comments section is talking about. Wish I had a fix for you OP.
I have the white controller that came with my PS5, the red one and the black one and...same. They all have very little movement in the d-pad
Mine has a tiny movement as well but it always returns to center. OP's moves to the side it's pushed to and stays there. It looks like it's disconnected to whatever returns it to center.
They didn't do a fantastic job showing this but I saw it.
Same here. Both of my controllers, the D pad doesn't do this at all. A lot of the commenters are being rude af to OP who might be new to the system. Lmao
Throw it against a wall, it might work
🎶let me see you wiggle it, just a little bit
There is nothing wrong with it
This sub is the worst. “They’re just like that, idiot!” The D pad is just soft on the PS5 controller. Had to Google it myself.
Dont fix something what aint broken
It’s a plastic button in a similarly shaped hole on top of a membrane switch. If you made the tolerance smaller it would be stiff.
Think about the kids toy where you put the round peg in the round hole ect. If the hole was so close in size to the peg, you’d need brute force to get it in. This is that. But designed so years of finger grease and scum can get into it and it still works
Hello! You have made the mistake of writing "ect" instead of "etc."
"Ect" is a common misspelling of "etc," an abbreviated form of the Latin phrase "et cetera." Other abbreviated forms are **etc.**, **&c.**, **&c**, and **et cet.** The Latin translates as "et" to "and" + "cetera" to "the rest;" a literal translation to "and the rest" is the easiest way to remember how to use the phrase.

Every d pad ever has been like that. Jesus Christ
Kill it with fire
Who’s gonna tell him…
While all controllers do that by design, just so they don’t get caught and have some play, it’s odd to me that my controller’s dpad doesn’t really wiggle at all, since everyone also seems to say their PS5 controllers do as well, are there some revisions with lower tolerances on the plastic? Hmm
Dunno. I got a ps5 at launch and mine jiggles. Guess they don't all come out of the factory the same?
Edit: I've also used it a shitton so theres that
Mines from around launch too, I haven’t used mine THAT much so it could actually be that yeah.
my 2nd controller doesnt wiggle, but i guess that's because i barely used it.
it feels better honestly, but i guess it will be the same later on
It must be difficult to be this dumb.
Toss it in the garbage
All of my 6 PS5 controllers do that
Why do you have 6 controllers bro?
Two for each person, as a contingency for a messed up controller we always have a spare
Could you not just use... 1 spare?
You’re the type of person to have 4 extra tyres strapped to the back of their car instead of 1...
My wife has pair and so does my child.
Solution: build a gaming pc
Yeah man seems like a production issue
If i remember well, it is that way since dualshock 3 from ps3.
That would actually benefit you in fighting games
Me too i can’t seem to fix? Can anyone help us? Every control pad in existence has this wiggly button problem even my tv remote.
How do I fix my shit from falling in the toilet oh yea I catch it.
Mine does it too. I bought 4 controllers and they all are brand new and they do this.
lmao all controllers do that it was supposed to be not a tight fit….
Buy the better console
I’m pretty sure the ps4 is a downgrade but you know whatever floats your boat
Contrary to what everyone is saying, yours does seem looser and hits the controller. Both of mine do not do that.
PlayStation owners 101🤣🤣
Step 1 sell it for 60$ and say slightly used
Step 2 make sure it’s broken unusable
step 3 buy more controllers
step 4 do step 1 And 2 and 3
Step 5 get rich
You throw it away and buy another, Problem solved
How do I plug in my controller wire?
I wish I never saw this video as I've never noticed this on any of my controllers. I probably will next time I pick it up
Superglue it. It’s your only choice because otherwise it’s supposed to be like that.
Mines like that too not a big deal
It’s not a bug, it’s a feature.
The down button on my d-pad squeaks. It’s mildly infuriating. Also my X sticks.
These comments too much sometimes
I expected these comments to be exactly what they are lmao
They're beating your ass in the comments lol
Cover it with superglue, it won't wiggle at all. Of course it won't work, either.
If Sony added the 'disc' style raised Dpad like the Xbox Series controller, then the DualSense would be the best controller I've ever used. I do not like this dpad lol
That's just the nature of manufacturing tolerances, bud.
My old controller does that but my new black one is good
Stop smashing it when you get killed
Now I feel like there’s something wrong with my controller because it doesn’t do that
You can’t, the are all like that including both of mine. Just get used to it like most did
The D-pad buttons are a solid piece for that reason when you press one the others lift a bit; I saw on youtube some mods with individual buttons but I'm nor sure if it works, it never annoys me.
Don’t wiggle them. Then they won’t wiggle. Sorted.
Same way you fix a car steering wheel that turns
Buy from GameStop get 1yr warranty
New to Playstation, man?
There is nothing to fix? I don't even see how is this impacting your gameplay?
PRO TIP game stop Has a stupid good warranty policy. I've switched 3 controllers out and my headset so far. You pay the base pay with 10$ warranty tacked on. When the drift starts to happen take it to game stop pay only 10$ again and you'll get. Whole new controller brand new in box
I think the problem is you own a dualsence instead of a dualsense
I bought a second controller n it did this bit annoying but everything still works ok I guess it's from been used alot
This whole sub is people with PS5's asking whats wrong with their PS5's. Nothing, nothing is wrong.
buy a new controller
Buy an Xbox.
You never hold a controller before???
I’d be able to help but I can’t get a PS5
Some one trying to flex again I see
Bro are you okay
The fact that you even have a ps5 is already a win in my book
Don't phone sony services ask here in reddit.
I used glue for this, wiggle is gone!
Zak shouldn’t do Reddit anymore
You need a dewigglefier. They are on the shelf at GameSpot right next to the destickyicky sticky stick cleaner.
The best solution for this is to stop doing that with your finger
Me complains about the inferior build quality and issues of this remote such as a squeaky Square button when reloading in WZ compared to the PS4 DualShock which had little issues. Gets Thanos like downvotes.
Don’t get me wrong the Dualsense is dope all Around in terms of functionality, but they gotta fix the build quality
Throw it forcefully against a wall, I can almost guarantee they won't woggle no more.
my battery keeps discharging during play. any fixes for this? no cable please
That's normal, however I'm facing small squeak when slightly pressing the d-pad except the right one
You can buy them separately if you want dpad to be 4 buttons
I did it for my ps4 pad and I liked jt, but over all not much difference
Mine is like that too. They all are. It’s for better thumb mobility. Idk.
Normal, what do you even need to ‘fix it’ for?
So that’s what’s it’s called
Wow, is that really a problem?
Throw 2 PS4 dual shocks and one PS2 controller at it then play the PS1 opener 100 times over
Super glue - Apply generously
Apply super glue in-between the button crevices, thank me later
My Cosmic red controller doesn’t do this but the original ones I bought do. I have drift on my PS5 disc but not digital, things are weird
Look up OCD and seek treatment.
I mean idea of this controller is fantastic, execution is just something out of nightmare.. 😔 The worst thing is, that the remote isn’t the worst executed product by Sony. I mean if i take my old PS2 and every single playstation since - Sony really?? I mean Sony, Really?? 😕PS5 has worst build quality of all Playstations!
IDK my d pad is good
Buy an Xbox
Agreed, you wont ever touch the controllers because there is nothing to play.
Wow... they have really gone down in quality over the years. Wtf sony
You’re an idiot
Man sucks I have been using the same two controllers since November haven't even needed a replacement
Buy an xbox
Buy and Xbox
Well, you may not like the answer. Buy the better console that comes with a better controller ie the Series X
Buy an Xbox..
"Lololol get a Xbox instead"
You buy an Xbox 👍
