Reinstalling System Software | PS4

https://www.playstation.com

Here are the steps to take if your PS4 system starts up in Safe Mode with a message requesting an update file on a USB device. These directions are only recommended for PS4 systems that cannot start up normally, because following them will delete all data from the hard disk.

    Lot of people moaning "7 years of saves down the drain" really should have backed up regularly using PS Plus (paid) or a USB drive (free). I mean, the option is there. Electronics fail and you should always be prepared.

  17. Moisty_ Nugget on December 8, 2020 at 10:12 pm

    I did that but it keeps making me repeat it over and over agin

  18. john cutt on December 8, 2020 at 10:12 pm

    I know this is so frustrating but as soon as you are done with reinstalling sign in with your account that all the data is on and you’re account will come back.

  23. Jordan Federico on December 8, 2020 at 10:20 pm

    I did this and got all the way to the “The ps4 will be initialized. All users and data will be deleted. Are you sure you want to continue? And then I clicked yes and it immediately said the system storage cannot be accessed something like that and the only other option was “turn off ps4” what do I do now?

  41. Junior's Fingerboards on December 8, 2020 at 10:35 pm

    I don’t have the option under the “help” tab that says system software, only “hardware” and then I can click on ps4 system update but when I click that I don’t get the link you show here that says “complete system software file” I don’t get it smh
