    keyboards don't have the PS4 PS button that needs to be pressed before anything else can be used when you turn on a PS4

    i.e. nothing will work on a PS4 until the PS button is pressed with something that is synced to it, so that would still not rule out the pad being defect, this even happens with a PS2 pad hooked up via a USB converter it still will ask for the PS button to be pressed

    That's odd. I don't think PS3 is like that, when I got my Hori pad (which is wired) I turned my PS3 on at the console and it just works.
    You don't have to press PS button to use it like you do with a wireless pad.

    In fact the PS button on that controller can't even turn on the PS3, but it can shut it down and do all the other things the button normally does.
    Spoiler warning:


    If you send me a friend request on PSN please identify yourself and possibly state a reason why. Blank requests will be ignored.
