Procedure for Entering Safe mode when PS3 is caught in
When you first turn on the PS3, it will not allow you to go into Safe mode. You must prepare it for this.
link for flash drive prep:
(This will not work for the drive that currently is caught in the update loop. You must take the hard drive out of the PS3 and temporarily replace it with another 2.5” SATA drive. Note: temp drive may need to be initialized… Connect drive to pc, right click on My Computer and select Manage… Then select disk Management… you will then be presented with a dialogue box that will assist in initializing the disk.. However, only initialize it… Do Not Format it!(waste of time) Once the disk is initialized disconnect it from external enclosure or shut down computer and remove disk)
From the top:
1.) Plug in PS3 and flip switch in back of PS3 to on. Red LED in front of PS3 should light up. Also, plug in Controller at this point.
2.) Hold finger to I/O button on front of PS3 – Green LED lights up
a. You will hear one beep, then another single beep, then a final beep and the PS3 will power off again and Red LED will be on
3.) Hold finger to I/O button on front of PS3 – Green LED lights up
a. You will hear one beep, then another single beep, then two beeps
4.) As soon as you hear the two beeps, hold PS button on Controller
a. You will then be presented with an options screen
i. Restart System -- leads back to update loop
ii. Restore Default Settings --
iii. Restore File System -- leads back to update loop (8002F14E)
iv. Rebuild Database --
v. Restore PS3 System --
vi. System Update -- will cause error
5.) You will then remove the temporary SATA drive from the PS3 and replace it with the hard drive that is caught in the update loo
6.) I am currently stuck attempting to Restore Default Settings and Im sure it will end in error, but i have to try all possible solutions.

SOURCE: ps3 error 8002f14e
That is Failed Software Update, when that happens the system gets corrupted and cannot load anymore.
All you can do is downloading the update into an USB stick , plugging the memory stick into any of the USB ports on the PS3 and try to run the update again. Do it a couple of times.
If that does not work contact Sony, in some case they will replace the playstation becvause of this error.

try to format it first ok, choose the custom format->FULL system format it will take 2-3 hours so dont panic, just format it, now if it doesn't work just go to the nearest PC store and buy ur self a brand new laptop hard disk with any size u want and replace it with the old one, but format FIRST okkkkk
