Restore Default Settings

You can restore the system software of the PS4™ system to its default settings. Select [Initialization] > [Restore Default Settings], and then follow the screens.


  • Once the restore operation is done, it cannot be undone.
  • Do not turn off the PS4™ system during the restore operation. If you do, the system might be damaged.
  • Even if you perform this operation, the system software will not be restored to a previous version.
