The issue in GetHuman4726755's own words
Play my PlayStation. Screen froze. Unplugged ps* and got stuck in a loop ... I'm a ** year old boy and my ps* won't let me access the home screen. Whenever I attempt to turn it on, the ps* puts me in the screen that shows up when you unplug your ps* when it's on and says checking system storage status and it will do that and reset and Just completely turn off and when I turn it back on it just checks system storage status again or it tells me "cannot start the Ps**Connect the dualshock * using the usb cable, and then press the PS button". So I do that, it then tells me to connect a sub storage device which I don't have so cancel and turn it back on then does the same process. Or if I turn on the ps* using my remote it shows me the PlayStation logo, the checks system storage status and resets and does it again or tells me I need a usb. I've tried all safe mode options but initialize because I don't want to lose my PS plus my games my docs in my games or my friends. Please help me out of this loop.
