Why is my PS4 controller acting on its own?

Why is my PS4 controller acting on its own?

My PS4 controller seems to act on its own whenever I try to navigate anywhere and it goes in all different directions instead of going where I want it to go, I don't know if it's broken or if it's a technical issue inside.

"Im playing thru my computer and it also does the same. i just download a software ds4windows. Run the software first then pair your controller.

*When stopping the ds4windows the symptoms will still occur.

To fix:

go to control panel

my devices

find your controller and calibrate it. the option is on properties ."

"My controller had this issues, kept pressing the PS button so this turns the controller on and off randomly. I have some background in fixing electronics, my warranty has expired anyway. This issue is notorious with laptop keyboards because they have the same flex keys on the Ps4 controller. If you know how to open it up (Search ps4 controller disassembling on YouTube) then buy this flex and replace with your controller and it shouldn't press keys by itself anymore.

If it happens. Take a pin /needle and put it in backside hole of your controller until u hear a clicking sound. This will reset the controller and Then it will work fine as before

"check the rubber button and analog, maybe it just dirty

->open casing with screw

->release the battery

->open PCB board

->clean the rubber button and analog with chemical cleaner

hope it can resolve your problem"

This happens with my Wii Nun-chuck. It may have dirt or grime in the rotation socket that is making making it stick.
