Method 1: Boot The PS4 Into Safe Mode

This is the first method to try and see if your problem can be fixed. Safe Mode allows you to start the system with the most basic functions only. Here’s how:

  • Connect the DualShock 4 controller using the USB cable.
  • Now, press the PS button on the controller and turn off the PS4 (The power indicator will blink for a few moments before turning off.)
  • Once you’ve confirmed the console is turned off, you can now press and hold the power button on the PlayStation.
  • Release the power button only after hearing two beeps: one when you first press and another seven seconds later.
  • Power button.

If successful, the system will boot to Safe Mode. Try again if you didn’t get it the first time.

Method 2: Clear The PS4 CMOS
