About Safe Mode

Safe Mode launches the PS4 system with basic functions active. You can enable this mode if you are unable to turn on the PS4 console or when errors occur on the PS4 system.

3. Now press the PS button on your controller again, and subsequently,, you should see the safe mode menu screen.

How to turn it off

If you are trapped in a Safe Mode loop, there are several ways to get your PS4 out of Safe Mode.
