PS4 downloaded update. Console now stuck.

It displays the loading circle on screen. White light fades in and out. Initially the controller was responding, but now nothing. Any help?

@Heirren: Hopefully you've sorted this by now. If not then try turning off the ps4 and holding the power button down until it beeps a second time to enter safe mode. then try rebuiding database. that should hopefully sort it for you. Good luck.

I ended up having to switch the power strip off. It entered safe mode upon starting up. System did not update, and I didn't have time to redownload it etc.

That sucks. Thankfully, my update went smoothly for me.

Switch it off from the power strip? Ouch that's just asking for trouble. Should have just held down the power button.

Didn't have time to redownload? It was pretty quick for me.
