PS VR: Drifting Issues

« Go Back



If the screen has drifted to either side while playing PS VR compatible games or while playing non-VR games or watching videos through the PS VR headset in Cinematic mode you can troubleshoot these issues following the steps below:

Troubleshooting PS VR Drift while in VR Mode

If your DUALSHOCK®4  wireless controller is connected to your PS4 console with the USB cable, this can interfere with the PlayStation Camera's view of the light bar. Unplug the DUALSHOCK®4  and use it wirelessly to fix this issue.

  1. Place your PS Camera about 4 feet 7 inches (1.4m) from the floor and position yourself about 6 feet (2m) away from the PS Camera.

  2. Make sure your PS Camera is on a level surface and can see the PS VR Headset in your Play Area.

  3. Press and hold the PS button to open the Quick Menu

  4. Select Adjust PlayStation VR > Confirm Your Position to check your positioning.

If the issue persists, take off the VR headset and leave the power on. Place the VR headset in a location that is stable and free from vibration for approximately 10 seconds.

Troubleshooting PS VR Drift while in Cinematic Mode (TV)

You will need to re-center your PS VR Screen Positioning.

  • Look forward to where you want to re-position the screen and hold the Options button for two seconds until the screen re-positions.
