I have no PC nor phone for the USB cable to get into recovery mode.
I used the USB socket on my TV and was able to get into recovery mode using instructions posted everywhere. i. e. Volume up and power key and hold until the menu appears. Select option required using volume keys and power key to activate (double check!).
It did NOT work if I used an external power source nor battery source.
Maybe other devices as well as a TV might work if you have no laptop nor spare phone.
Hope this helps.

@Mal100 Thanks for posting. some others Member have found the Tv USB option works. For some software though it helps to have a laptop/PC.

The advice I offer is my own and does not represent Samsung’s position.
