PS4 Controller not connecting, won't reset

Lisa R.
Playstation 4 - PS4

So I was playing my PS4 two days ago, and then packed it up with two controllers that were both connected to this PS4. I got to where I was going, and now the controllers won't connect. They show pulsing orange when they plug in, but when I hit the PS Button to connect, it blinks white 1-2 times and goes back to orange. I have tried resetting them both.

Hold the PS-button and Share-button simultanously for some seconds while the PS4 is turned on. This will reset all connections of the controller and searches for a new one. If this doesn't help, try different USB-cables after resetting. If that also doesnt work, your controller is probably damaged.
"You could also press the reset button first with a small screwdriver for some seconds to ensure the device is reset, then try the PS and Share-button press."
Seriously just press and hold the system button for 5-sec then press the controller power button. Everything should work.
