My s20fe I left in for couple(11) months unused hot bricked by ping glitch, I have pin written on the case as it's backup phone, but it doesn't work.

Pin doesn't work and 1111 is rather hard to write down wonky enough to misread.

I changed Google account password since I used it last time = it's signed out and now not visible  in findmymobile anymore.

The side+volume down button wont power it down it asks for pin. 

If I hold them longer it just reboots.

I tried swapping to side + vol up as screen is going blank but it just reboots.

Anything else I can try before I burn the f****g piece of s**t!?

I had a similar but different issue and I just sent it in to Samsung to remove the lock on it and put it back to normal factory settings. Cost me £30. They ask for the invoice for proof it's your phone and that's it, send it off and wait a week or 2. I didn't even need to phone them if you go through the repair part of their website there is an option somewhere like a forgotten pin or password. May be an easier option to fix but just letting you know it's an option.

The phone is worth about £40, and as it's old company phone I have no invoice. Tbh s20fe is second worst phone I owned, right after iphone4 pro.
