Broken screen can't deactivate

I recently cracked the edge of my screen causing a few problems so I turned off screen lock and seems ok 90% of the time. Today's problem is I put battery saver on as was out and only had 5% and now I can't disable it as the screen times out straight away. To be able to get the phone screen back to working order I need to disable the saver back to normal. Help

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Try this:-

You can force Galaxy S7 or S7 edge to power off without unlocking the phone by following these steps:

Step 1: Connect Galaxy S7 and S7 edge to wall charger with the USB cable and make sure it is charging.

Step 2: Press and hold Volume down button and Power button (holding two buttons) for about 7 seconds.

Step 3: Release power button, then volume down button.

Now, Galaxy S7 or S7 edge should be powered off. You can wake up the screen to verify. It should show a charging battery icon.

I have spent hours trying to find a solution. This is the only one that works. Thank you very, very much. Now I can boot into TWRP and get all my files out.


yes this is hard to find knowledge! On my broken note 5, this solution works too (just pressing down + power button only reboots phone, not power off). Samsung should have made it easier to force power off phone with sealed in battery


100% working for my broken screen,Thanks


This doesn't work for me. It's just causing the hard reset but the phone immediately powers back up. I need the phone to stay off so I can take out my sim card


when i try this it just restarts my phone? HELP PLEASE.

My Galaxy 7 started repeatedly rebooting and the hard shut off did not work. I have a replacement phone but have files I need to get off the G7. Is there another way to cancel the automatic rebooting process that the phone is stuck in?

It's really too bad that no one has a universal fix for this. What i ended up doing was taking the phone apart and removing the battery. What could be the problem is the button mechanisms are faulty from the damage as well.
