The battery points read 4.04V. The Ground + TP28/29 only reads 2.7V
i get it now, sony don't want us to do ledmods anymore.
i looked at my own controllers, i only own dualshock 2 ones, so i can't experiment myself.
i would probably give up searching for a decent point and use this next schematic.
R1 should be around 100ohm or less, but i can understand since you have to use a transistor that this is not an ideal solution for you.
