Having an issue with TE2+ losing connection on PS4

MethysanMethysan Joined: Posts: 51
My TE2+ will seemingly randomly lose connection on my PS4 and become unresponsive. However, the light bar and lock buttons etc. will remain lit up. I have to unplug and replug it in. Only upon unplugging it will the PS4 say the controller has been disconnected. This happens across multiple games, and in both usb ports, and even happened with a friend's TE2+ on the same console. I've also tried a powered usb hub as reddit suggested with no luck. Any ideas what could be causing this?

    Are these stock TE2s or do they have the brook board in them?

    It's a stock TE2+ I haven't made any modifications to it. I bought it July 2016 and haven't had any trouble until about a month ago. My PS4 is a launch model so it's probably from November/December 2013

    Maybe a defective USB cable

    Try using another power source for your PS4.. if it's connected to a powerstrip try using another one.. some ps4's are very sensitive with this kind of sh*t.

    Even in tournaments some ps4's disconnect usb devices randomly. it sucks a lot

    Also Try to pick up a powered USB Hub, one with it's own AC wall adapter.
