Suddenly today my pin isnt being accepted. Keeps saying incorrect pin. Tried changing it in settings but it asks for my pin which is then saying is incorrect! Any advice please? Am too worried about restarting etc etc as if it doesnt work I'm locked out and need phone for work. At moment am able to use fingerprint unlock but every now and again will ask for a pin number! Thanks

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.
