PS4 Stuck in Safe Mode

7 replies 8885 views Edited Nov 15, 2013

My PS4 has been crashing a couple of times today when I play a game. Now, my PS4 is stuck in safe mode. The blue light on top of the console just keeps blinking. I've tried turning it on and off multiple time and unplugging the power cable. I have no idea what is going on. Is anyone else having this problem?

I was stuck rebooting continuously in safe mode earlier, I selected restore default settings or system default, whatever it said. After that it ran fine, besides problems patching Warframe(kept hard freezing system) which I deleted. All the other free download games have been fine so far.

I had the same problem, restoring default system settings worked perfect for me.  My ps4 only started up in safe mode.  I had tried updating system software throught the internet and with a usb.  Both ways said it was updating, restarted, but only brought me back to the same screen.  Once I chose restore default settings, it rebooted and started with installing the system software. To bad I had already tried intializing before I did this.  Oh well just glad my PS4 is working again.

Instead of reseting your console and lose everything just try and click default  settings saves you a headache
