Wiping HDD is SOP to protect user information. Unfortunately credit card info and save games all fall under user information.

I have done most of the stuffs related to resolving the blue light issue short of actually opening up the unit or changing HDD. The PS4 can't even boot into safe mode.
Well... the most common hardware failure correlated to blinking blue light requires opening up the unit to fix...

Have you tried stepping on it?

j/k, but usually it's the soldering between the APU and the motherboard that goes bad, so people try to add more heatsink pressure hoping the mechanical force will result in contact. Google washer trick.

Or you can try stepping on it if you don't want to disassemble


Although I would start with (gently) placing the PS4 in different orientations: sideways, upside down...
