If anyone has a fix id be glad to hear it... Otherwise im just gonna forget playstation and never buy anything of theirs again...ill gladly go back to my 360 and xbox one if something this simple is a problem.

try charging it on the usb on your computer.. if it works then it may just be the usb port on your system.. or try holding in the reset button on the back with a paperclip
