PS4 is prone to get locked in a Safe Mode Loop, with no way out.
Switch on PS4 in Safe Mode
PS4 Safe Mode Loop has been addressed for many users by rebooting in safe mode.
Using this method will not result in the loss of any personal information.
Follow these simple steps:
- The power button on your PS4 should be pressed to turn it off.
- Hold down the power button to enter Safe Mode when you hear the second beep.
- Once the USB cable is connected, press the PS button on the controller to link it.
- To restart your PS4 in Safe Mode, select Restart PS4 and hit X.
Using the PS4’s Power Cycle
This procedure ensures that your PS4 is off and unplugged.
During the initial setup, it will re-create all the configurations.
- As a result, here’s how to turn PS4 back on:
- Tap and hold the console’s power button for at least 10 seconds until it shuts off fully.
- Remove the console’s power cord from the back.
After that, repeatedly press and hold the power button to clear the PS4’s cache and deplete the system’s remaining power supply.
Once you’ve waited for 4 to 5 minutes, reconnect all of your peripherals and try running PS4 again to see whether the Safe Mode Loop problem has been resolved.
Do a Cable Check on Your HDMI Source and Devices
This is your best bet for those of you who were unsuccessful with the previous solution to the PS4 Safe Mode Loop.
If the problem persists, a faulty component may be at blame.
Let’s go for it, shall we?
Disconnect all HDMI cords from both your PS4 and TV.
If you’re unsure whether to buy a new HDMI cable, try swapping the ends.
Connect your PS4 to your TV through HDMI and the other way around.
If this solution worked for you, you could now restart your PS4 using the Restart PS4 option.
Playstation Database Rebuilding
Many people have found this to be the most effective option.
Using the Rebuild Database tool, you can completely reorganize your PS4’s hard disc data.

Turn on your PlayStation 4 now:
To pair the controller with the DUALSHOCK 4(DS4), connect the controller to a computer via USB connection and push the PS button.
The computer will start in Safe Mode if you hold down the power button and wait for the second beep.
Select “Rebuild Database” from the list of solutions under
Your PS4 Safe Mode Loop issue will be resolved after completing the process.
Manually Update Your PS4
You should try this one instead of the last one that didn’t work for you.
When the PS4 system has been offline, it is most often utilized to fix the “Safe Mode Loop” problem.
The following must be prepared before beginning this task:
An Internet-enabled computer
PS4 controller and USB cord
FAT32 file system and a USB disc with at least 460 MB of free space
As soon as you’ve completed the above, proceed to the following:
The USB root path should have a folder named “PS4” created when it is inserted into your PC.
In the PS4 folder, create an Updates folder.
Save the PS4UPDATE.PUP update file to your Updates folder after downloading it.
Enable Safe Mode
Then pick Update System Software from the menu that appears after Safe Mode is enabled.
Ok, when prompted to upgrade from a USB storage device.
Just double-check that the folder name and the new file name are right before proceeding.
Start the PlayStation 4 (PS4).
