Had this issue before! My fix was to connect the controller to the PS4 via a USB cable, then press the PS button. Worked like a charm!

Sometimes, the flashing white light is just a sign that the controller is trying to sync with the console. Hold the PS button and the Share button simultaneously until the light bar starts flashing, then pair it with the console again.

Your PS4 controller might be flashing white because it's having trouble connecting to the console. Try resetting it by pressing the small reset button on the back near the L2 shoulder button and then reconnecting it.

This can also happen if the battery is low and the controller needs to be charged. Plug it in and see if the flashing stops.
