To force a shutdown/reboot press Vol Down + Power. To enter maintenance mode press Vol Up + Power ( + Bixby if one exists ) AT START. When the phone is up and running Power + Vol Up won't work.

Thank you for the help. Unfortunately this does not work. I am asked to enter a password, but I have never set a password. I also cannot create a new security code or password, or a fingerprint or face recognition.

Then bring the phone to samsung, together with a proof of ownership, and let them completely reinstall it.

Yes, everything and completely. Which is internally on the phone, of course. And not on the SD. Which you should remove before anyway.

Hey Buddy,

 

Please press Power + Volumn Down (-) button, it will hard restart your mobile. I did it and it solved my problem.

 

Please do the same buddy. Definitely it will help you.

 

Thanks
