Hi there guys.
I know there are a lot of topics like this, but I’ve been reading a lot of them and didn’t find any with the exact same description of my problem.
What happens is, when I turn the PS4 on, it shows a blue light slowly blinking for a few seconds displaying the PS logo on screen (not always displays it), then it turns off and back on again (like a restart). This last time when it turns on, the blue light appears slowly blinking again, but this time it turns steady white and the display shows a message saying it is “checking the system storage status” and it never goes till the end (100%). After that the following message appears on screen:
“Cannot start the PS4.
Connect the DualShock using the USB cable, and then press the PS button.”
I do that and it asks me to reinstall the OS again.
The thing is, it happens very often in the last months and before that I never had any issue with the console. When it happened the first time, I just went to safe mode and reinstalled the OS (not the update option) and it was ok for a couple weeks, but now it’s happening more frequently and I don’t want to have to reinstall everything again every time I want to play a game. I’ve seen some people saying that it’s an HDD issue, but I’ve also seen some people saying that they replaced the HDD and the problem happened again a few months later.
Oh and I forgot to tell. The PS4 has been lagging a lot and taking too much time loading even the main screen, when entering settings menu etc.
Sorry for the long post and thanks in advance!
