Press and hold the Power key for about eight seconds. You should hear a beep once you first press the key, and a second one a few seconds later. Stop holding the key once you see the Safe Mode menu.
In the Safe Mode menu, select one of two methods - Restore Default Settings or Initialize PS4.
Restore Default Settings will clear all of your saved data and bring your console back to its factory default settings, but will leave all data on your hard drive. This is the more secure method, but if the problem is tied to your hard drive, it won't help.
Initialize PS4 option will do all of the above and wipe everything else found on your hard drive, including downloaded games. Use this method only if nothing else helps.
If you pick Initialize PS4, you will see two options - Quick or Full. Choose Full if you want to make sure your PlayStation 4 console has been wiped clean.
Confirm the whole operation by tapping Initialize one more time and Yes to begin the operation.
The entire process can take multiple hours, but that's it, you're done!
