I bought a new PS4 controller on Amazon but while I'm using it randomly disconnects. I don't get a message saying that it's been disconnected but the light starts blinking and it becomes unresponsive and reconnects after a few seconds.

I've tried resetting the controller and reconnecting it which fixed the problem for about a day but started disconnecting again. This only happens to my new controller, my other one never disconnects. How do I fix this?

If you verified that your old controller works fine, its most likely your new ps4 controller. Another possible test you can do it try it on another PS4 system at a friends home.

Since you purchased from Amazon, you might have a defective ps4 controller. You can just do a no hassle return with amazon and get another one. Go here to amazon returns here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/orc/returns/homepage.html
