    You should still be able to manually login with a password if your fingerprint isn't working.

Problem with my nexus 5 on stat up just the 4 little icons keep flashing. I can't get any further.

Is it locked from your fingerprint?
If so you can try the following -
  1. From any screen on your Nexus, touch the top of the display and drag your finger down twice to make the quick settings panel appear.
  2. Touch the white cog in the top right corner of the panel to go to your Settings menu.
  3. Scroll down the settings menu and tap on Security.
  4. If you want to set up the screen lock on its own, tap Screen lock. To add fingerprint unlocking, tap Nexus Imprint.

Dont know backup passsword finger[print not recongized

If you set up your fingerprint to unlock the screen you have set up a high security function for the phone that only the person with the right fingerprint can unlock, meaning not even Samsung tech support can unlock it. Secondly, if you have forgotten the back up password you are pretty much out of luck.

Before you give up, take a break.. when you are no longer feeling frustrated, give it another go.. but before you do, wash your hands first, if too oily it could cause issues.

If you have some Isoprenyl alcohol with a cotton ball or an electronic screen wipe, or even a dry microfiber cloth.. you can try cleaning the fingerprint scanner button should there be any oil or dirt that might be causing the issue.

For some people trying the fingerprint scanner multiple times, even 20 or more times might be necessary to getting it right to unlock it. Whatever you do, don't give up..

If you give up.. your only alternative is to factory reset the device, which will delete/wipe everything on the phone and make it as if you had just bought it out of the box. Everything will be gone: all your settings, files, photos..

How to add fingerprint scanner to screen lock

Hi, here is the way to set a lock screen password or fingerprint scan on the Samsung Galaxy S5 :

  • Swipe down from the top of the screen and tap the settings gear icon in the top-right.
  • Tap the Lock Screen icon that should be near the top, in the Quick Settings section.
  • Tap the Screen Lock item at the top of the following screen.
  • Tap the unlock mechanism you would like to use: swipe (a quick left-to-right gesture), pattern (where you draw a pattern on a 9-point grid which must be recreated to unlock), fingerprint (which uses the fingerprint-scanning home button at the bottom of the device), PIN number, or a regular text password.
  • Each one of these methods have their own set-up process, which is presented in the following pop-up windows. Most methods will require you to enter the code twice, and sometimes you'll need to include an alternative password for when the primary method doesn't work.
  • After setting up your unlock type, scroll to the bottom of the Lock screen section, and tap Lock automatically in order to set how long the Samsung Galaxy S5 waits after a screen has shut off to require an unlock password.
If you need to update your fingerprint scan or authorize additional users, find the Finger Scanner section within settings. From there, you can also set an alternative password.
Be sure to check our tips on keeping the screen active too, as well as our other Galaxy S5 help guides. There's also the Galaxy S5 forums if your particular issue isn't solved there. And be sure to read our complete Galaxy S5 review!
Personally, I'm a big fan of the fingerprint sensor, though the ergonomics don't always work out for everyone, and sometimes it takes multiple swipes to work. What's your favorite way of unlocking your device? How long do you set your lock timeout for?

It's different from product to product. But the good ones can be programmed to recognise up to 25 different fingerprints. So there's no need to cut your finger off to give to the girlfriend.
