After playing a brief game of NBA 2k14 I quit and inserted my battlefield 4 disk. The system prompted for an update, so while watching the progress bar (Around 20%) my controller light turned from blue to white. Hasn't worked since...

Get those extended warranties ready! and SCEA on speed dial!

**UPDATE**
Went thru a number of "fixes" with customer service and none of them worked. They are shipping me a box to get the unit serviced.
Safe Mode on the console no longer works.

**UPDATE** 2

For shits and giggles, swapped the hard drive for a fresh one, that also didn't work.

**UPDATE** 3 I AM NOT THE TWITCH GUY!!!!, also the hdd trick didnt work for me.

Did you tried to start up console in recovery mode? Hold power button for ~8 seconds.

You can download 1.50 update on PC, put it on USB stick and load it in recovery mode. Recovery [safe] mode maybe even has option for wiping current account and OS. Possibly its called "Initialize console".

Download the update onto a USB, access the safe mode and install the firmware. Read your manual.

So instead of reading the boot up screen, where it says to download the system update, you just decide to start a game up.

I ain't buying this
