I forgot the password to my Samsung S6 Lite and I can't power it off for a hard reset as it needs the password to power off. I tried waiting for the tablet to run out of battery to reset it using the volume and power buttons but it would still soft reset with 0%. I really need the tablet reset as I'm going to use it for school.

You can hard reset using recovery mode but you will then be stuck behind the FRP lock so unless you know your Google password your stuck

Hi @astic 

  1. Ensure the device is powered off.
  2. Press and hold the. Volume Up. and. Power buttons. ...
  3. Continue to hold the. Volume Up button and. Power button. 
  4. From the Android Recovery screen, select. Wipe data/factory reset. 
  5. Select Factory data reset. 
  6. Select Reboot system now.

You may though need to connect to laptop or PC to enter Recovery  Mode.

Whilst  there is software which claims to bypass FRP but cannot vouch for any of them myself. 

If Google password unknown may wish to visit a Samsung Support centre or arrange Doorstep Repair. https://www.samsung.com/uk/support/repair/

Hi,

I am coming back on that topic because I have the same issue, my tab S6 lite went black screen and none of the things I tried to turn it on again failed.

I tried to plug the tab to the wall and or to a laptop and hold the volume down and power button. Nothing happened. Same thing with volume up and power button. So far nothing I tried could turn on the tab again...

Is there anything else I can do or should I bring it to a shop to fix it?

Thanks in advance...
