Update System Software

From above screenshot, try option ,3 ‘Update System Software’. (To get the above menu hold power button on your PS4 for few seconds till you hear the second beep) Update System Software option will download if any new updates are available and install them, after the installation luckily you’ll be booted into normal mode.

Reset or Initialize PS4: (Warning !! Deletes All Data on HDD)

Reset your entire PS4 console, if you have uploaded your saves to PSN Cloud Storage then this is good option, although you’ll have to go through default startup after complete re-installation.

– Make sure you create backup of your save games.

– To reset your console, select option 6 (Initialize PS4) or option 7 (Initialize PS4 (Reinstall System Software)), both options will delete everything on HDD, only difference between these two options is option 7 will delete the System Software as well and reinstall it, which will cause no harm if you going with Initializing.

Hope this guide helps you to get your PS4 back into normal mode. If it doesn’t work, you can always try to call Sony’s Technical Support at 1-877-899-SONY (1-877-899-7669) for US and for Canada it’s 1-888-476-6972.
