PS4 stuck in safe mode and won’t initialise - what next?

Created 01/11/2019

My PS4 is stuck in safe mode. I've tried to update software via USB but keep getting error message saying USB not connected. Occasionally gives me option to initialise (option 7) but that doesn't work either and keeps saying "cannot initialise". System worked perfectly well until update 7 released. Anyone else had this problem and managed to resolve? Thanks!

    The HDD has probably failed if won't even initialise and needs replacing.
