Corrupted and won't turn on

I turn my play station 4 on and it says unable to turn on and it says I need to initialize it again using a USB With the latest system update download. I have done this three times and gotten it to start over as a new machine but whenever I turn it off and turn it back on it says I have to do it all over again

This sounds like it probably needs a new hard drive but it's also possible that the joints between the APU and motherboard are going bad. From your description I would suspect the hard drive first though.

Hope this helps.
