To get out of safe mode all you have to do is reboot the device, nothing else. The phone should be bale to work fine but without any third party applications.
If what you see on the display is just a bunch of letters, then you are in the recovery section. I'm not sure, but I think that once you highlight a line just tap the Home icon to activate. Make sure that "Reboot Device" is highlighted to reboot the phone in normal mode.

How to reset my tablet royqueen no volume key?


From a prior Fixya volunteer answer:

1. Press the power button to get the option menu for
Power / Reboot / Silence option.

2. From that menu you'll have to hold down the Power button while holding down the Home button on the side of your tablet.

3. This brings up a menu to "Reboot Into Safe Mode" (These first 3 steps the manufacture fails to mention, which is where many users get stuck)

4. Hit yes for Safe Mode and then hold down both Power and Home buttons on side till the Dopo logo appears.

5. Release the buttons and hit the Power button one more time, then hold the Home button down till a menu option appears.

6. Use the Home button to move down to "Factory Reset" and press the Power button to select that option. Once it says "complete" then use the Power button to select "Reboot."

My power button is not working my phone was switched off could you pls help me to switch on my phone. power button is not at all working my battery is full and it was switched off.


Sometimes plugging in the phone (into the charger) allows the phone to boot. Maybe your battery is simply empty? Charging the phone is a good idea regardless.

Also, try booting to safe mode to test the power button:

  1. Turn "OFF" the Galaxy S6
  2. Press and hold the Power/Lock button at the same time until you see the "Galaxy S6? logo
  3. When the logo shows up, immediately hold the Volume Down button, while releasing the Power button
  4. Keep holding the Volume Down until your phone finishes rebooting
  5. If it was loaded successful, a "Safe Mode" will show on the bottom left corner of the screen
  6. Let go of the Volume Down button
  7. To exit "Safe Mode" press thePower/Lockkey and then touchRestart

The device went into safe mode because the app that you downloaded was not a safe application. The device does this so that the application cannot cause more problems to your device. Even though the app was downloaded from the app store it was not deemed safe by your device. Here are some tips that will help you to get your device out of safe mode: -Ensure that if you have a case on your device that you take it off being that the case may be holding the volume button causing you to boot into safe mode -Try turning the device off then back on to get out of safe mode -Power off your device, then reboot by holding the power button + volume up key, then in the boot menu select reboot device -This is sometimes caused by the users accidentally tapping safe mode when cutting the device on so simply restart your device Most users have success by simply restarting the device in order to be able to get out of safe mode. Do your best to restart or reboot your device before you have to perform a hard reset to get the app off of your device to no longer go into safe mode In order to hard reset -Power off device -Hold down volume up + power -Release at the boot menu -Use the volume keys to highlight factory reset -Press the power button to select factory reset -After this the device will begin to reset itself -After it resets itself use the volume keys to highlight reboot device -press the power button to have your device rebooted in its factory settings
