First, forced power down from panel is always safe.
It's not "normal" power down, but all data is saved or at least put to
recoverable state.

There is a procedure described in software installation manual, how to recover
from A9002000 code.
In short, you need to IPL with console in debug mode.
When IPLing in attended mode, before choosing "Perform IPL", go to DST, then DST
environment, then choose "console in debug mode". (I do not have a book at hand,
so option names are approximate.)
After that, choose "Perform IPL" as before.
The difference will be that system will create separate QCTL controller
description and separate QCONSOLE device description for console device.
(Actually, they are always created, but system switches to nomal CTLD/DEVD at a
certain point in IPL, while in debug mode it will not.)
You should be able to get to menu and command line and investigate your problem
further.

Best regards
