How to boot the PlayStation 5 in Safe Mode

Basically, the whole process is a matter of two clicks. All you need is a DualSense controller and a USB-C wire.

  • Turn the console off with the controller or hold down the PS5’s power button until it shuts down. You don’t need sleep mode, so turn it off all the way.
  • Plug the controller into the console with the cable.
  • Press and hold the power button on the console until it beeps twice.
  • When you hear the second beep, press the home button on your controller.

You are now in the safe mode menu. Find item five – Clear Cache and Rebuild Database – and select it.

Agree to everything and wait for the process to complete. After that, the console will reboot itself.
