Prices have skyrocketed since lockdown began!!! Wish I’d grabbed one for 30 quid before all of this kicked off. Oh well, might have to bite if it goes sub £50 for an official controller
There seems to be a red one on Gumtree based in Huddersfield if that helps and they seem to be open to offers as well!

No worries, not sure if the seller is offering postage but from the pics the product seems to be an official one

Yeah mine broke and I don’t want to pay much for one because they’re expensive
There's a for sale board over at AVforums. usually cost about £30 there for an official one.
When you say its broke what's up with it? I've been fixing them for a while now, might be able to help
Bought one from Very + £6 t-shirt using their £20 off £50 spend click. Sold my controller on ebay as faulty.

The charging port is broken at the top. I’ve bought a new charging port piece and replaced it but it still doesn’t work

I have a charging dock but my PS4 controller isn’t connected to my PS4 and the only way to pair the controller to the console is through usb

Did you get the right one, did you match the model number up i.e JDM-040 or JDM-011 to your motherboard?
Also the ribbon cable that come with them sometimes are crap so use your original instead.

The controller you can sync without a cable, hold the share button and PS button for 10 seconds together the light bar will flash. Go into your settings, device, controller and register it. Or it might be settings, bluetooth devices, then you'll be able to sync it

Like I say if you get stuck with anybody on these I know them better than anybody and happy to help

I reset my PlayStation before all of this, that’s why my controller isn’t connected in the first place. I tried the hold the share and ps button for 10 seconds, it does flash but it still doesn’t connect for some reason.

That's what it'll look like, ignore all my controllers it's just from older ones I've only got 4 now

Just opened a controller to show you the model number, see it says JDS-001 you link yours to that, quick google. But like I say the ribbon cables they send are usually poop

I can’t get onto settings because I only have one controller unfortunately

Ah right my bad, thought you might have two. Have you got a mate or family member who could pop round with theirs or lend you one for 10mins?
Did you try your old cable on the pad, and did you make sure it was the same model number you fitted? Cheap as chips for a new USB port normally £2 or around £2.60 with a cable, fitted bloody loads.
And fixed loads of stick drift, the sensors on the analog sticks get dirty over time and people think there broke

Yes I’ve tried both cables but I’m not a 100% sure what jds charging port is used for my controller because I’ve tried a few to try get it working again.

Right so you've opened the controller and fitted a new one of these?

Have a look on your old charging port for the model, then compare it to the new one you've bought, not all are compatible with each other that's why you need to check the code. Plus some are 14 pins on the cable and some 10

Hopefully I'll be able to save your controller and tell you what you need
