My lock screen on galaxy 5 won't come on. It goes straight to home screen. Why is it doing that? It was fine 2 days ago. How can I get it back?


Three Reasons Why Screen Lock is Gone
1. Screen Lock has been deactivated (Instructions how to activate are at bottom.)
2. Android Screen Security File may have been deleted, and screen lock option is no longer on your devise.(A Factory Reset will restore original Android files)
3. Malfunction Somewhere in Samsung Phone. (A Factory Reset might work, but not guaranteed)
(How to Factory Reset phone at bottom.)

How to ativate Screen Lock and Security settings

1. Press the apps icon, it usually at the bottom of screen.
2. Find Settings and press that button to open settings menu.
4. Scroll down the menu to Lock Screen and Security, press that to open options menu.
5. The first option at top is Screen Lock Type.Press and Open.
6. You will have 3 lock types to choose from. Swipe Lock, Passcode Lock, Password Lock
(advise, do not forget password, only a hard phone reset, or an apk lockout file will get you back in)

If activating screen lock through settings did not work, or if option is not available, you can try to reset phone to the way it was when you bought it.

There is a couple things you should know.
1. contacts, photos, videos, downloaded apps, games, and everything not on the phone when it was first bought, or when you first got the phone will be erased.
2. You can back up contacts, photos, videos, in settings menu, scroll down to Backup and Reset. Or save to an sd card, and remove sd card before applying reset option
3. If you have an account (google or android email) associated with your phone, you will need email address, (example@any.com) and password to get back in phone after phone resets and turns on.) Dont remember password, Please create a new password now before continuing to reset to manufacture settings.

Reset Phone to Manufacture Settings
1. Remove SD Card, or its saved files will be erased.
2. Open apps, Open Settings Menu, Scroll Down to Backup and Reset.
3. Scroll down to bottom of page to Factory Data Reset.
4. Follow instructions to reset phone.

When your phone comes back on, Swipe Screen Unlock should be active at phone turn on, if screen lock is not showing try again to turn on in security settings.
If still does not work,
I am sorry, Your phone has permanantly malfunctioned. You can try your phone store, or a phone repair shop.

Cant hard reset do not know password


Hard Reset - Samsung Omnia (i910)
warning.gif A hard reset is the last resort for troubleshooting. This reset will erase all data and restore preferences to factory default specifications. Performing a hard reset is only recommended when the existing data has been backed up or is unwanted.
note.gif To prevent the loss of encrypted data, refer to Microsoft Knowledge Base Article - 944102 for additional assistance.
If the preferred method is not available, there is an alternate Method.
Preferred Method
  1. From the Today screen, tap Start > Settings.

  2. From the System tab, tap Hard Reset.

I forgot password of my touch screen samsung omnia


I think you'll have to hard reset your device, in order to get passed the password request procedure. You, most probably, know that a hard reset will return your device to its factory defaults, thus deleting all the applications you have installed, as well as all your personal data and settings. Anyway, to hard reset your device, press and hold both the SEND and END buttons, and, whilst keeping them pressed, press the reset pin with the stylus pen. Release the keys when a confirmation request screen comes up. Follow the on-screen instructions (if I'm not mistaken, confirm the hard reset procedure by pressing the SEND button).
Hope you are able to have a fully functional device again soon.
Best regards, Carlos
