You might need to pair it again with your PS4. Connect it with a USB cable, press the PS button, and see if that does the trick.

Could be a software issue. Try restarting your PS4 and see if that helps. If all else fails, you might need to update your console's firmware.

Try resetting the controller. There's a tiny reset button on the back near the L2 shoulder button. Use a paperclip, hold it down for a few seconds, and then try turning it on again.

I had this issue once; turned out my USB cable was bad. Swapped it out, and my controller came back to life. Worth a shot!

First, make sure it's charged! Plug it in with a USB cable and give it a few minutes. Sometimes the battery just needs a little juice to wake up.
