Why safe mode? You intentionally want to boot into safe mode or you just can't get into the normal PS4 menu?

Are you sure there is a hard disk inside the PS4? Maybe the previous owner took it out. You can check by sliding out the top part of the cover (the glossy one). See here for picture. If there is no HDD, you will need to get one yourself and follow the instructions in the above link. You should contact the seller too if he cheated you by removing the HDD.

If there is a HDD, maybe the previous owner wiped it clean. You can download the PS4 firmware from here. Just follow the steps at the bottom for "Perform a New Installation of the System Software". If that doesn't work, then maybe the set is bricked and the seller cheated you.
Hi, ya i go into safe mode intentionally to try and change the resolution from there as wad alot of pple have suggested online. Normal boot no issue. Just that its in 480p. Can play fifa normally, installed from a cd hardcopy. Firmware shows 6.51 which is the same as ps website.

Most likely i got cheated la. Bought from carousell. After do cod the guy deleted the listing immediately and mia-ed
