Verify whether USB charging cable works or not

This reason seems minor but can prevent you from the long process to fix yellow light flashing problems.

Check that the USB cable is working properly and your device is getting charged according to the requirements.

Choose the Safe Mode to Turn on the PS4

If none of the above-mentioned ways works, you still have one more way to fix the yellow light issue, you are required to restart your Console in the safe mode.

To perform this operation, turn the console off first and hold the power button for around 10 seconds until the beep tone sounds.

Now press the PlayStation button of your controller after connecting your PS4 controller with a USB charging cable.

Now opt for Restart the PS4 option by using the button, but you need to take care that you are not switching on the PS4 in safe mode if USB ports are not occupied because without connecting it with a USB cable, it will not allow you to restart in the safe mode.

Restart the PS4

One more thing is yet to do if you are still facing yellow light flashing in the controller.

First, switch the PS4 off and on it again and with the spot of seeing the welcome screen connect the controller with PS4 by the charging cable.
