The ps4 should be tucked away in the back, so you’ll need to use a flathead screwdriver to get to it. Be careful not to scratch the ps4 while you’re unscrewing it. Once you’ve found the ps4, screw it back in and enjoy your new console .
How to open ps4 controller
To open a ps4 controller, start by turning over the controller so that the back is facing up. Then, use your thumb to push up on the tab located at the top of the battery compartment.

Make sure that the new batteries are inserted in the correct orientation; otherwise, the controller may not work properly. Finally, close the battery compartment and give the ps4 controller a try. If it still isn’t working, check to make sure that the batteries are inserted correctly.
Pry open the two screws on the back of the controller using the screwdriver

Be careful not to damage any of the small components as you do this.
Once the back panel is removed, you will have access to the battery compartment, as well as the circuit board and other sensitive components. If you need to clean or repair any of these parts, simply follow the same process in reverse to reassemble your controller.

Then, use a small flathead screwdriver to pry out the battery. Once the old battery is removed, insert the new one and screw the back panel back on.
If your controller uses AA batteries, simply pop in new ones once the old ones run out of power. Either way, replacing batteries is a quick and easy process that anyone can do.
Replace back panel and screws, making sure they are securely fastened
