Re: Screen issue s10

Hey @useroLwD03m1sa 

Sorry to hear you are going through this can you try a hard reset to see if it powers your device back on instructions below 


Samsung Galaxy S10 - Factory Data Reset (Powered Off)

Caution Caution:

  • If the device is responsive and can be powered on, the preferred reset method should be performed.
  • For devices with Android Device Protection turned on, it's imperative Google™ sign-in credentials are known prior to completing a factory reset with the device powered off. If credentials are unknown:
    • Attempt to sign in with any Google account previously used on the device.
    • Reset the password.
  • Perform a factory data reset only if absolutely necessary as it removes all data including:
    • Contacts
    • Email accounts
    • System and app data
    • App settings
    • Downloaded apps
    • Media (Music, pictures and videos, etc.)


Note Notes:

  • If a pattern, PIN, etc. is or has ever been set up on the device, Google account sign in is required during initial setup.
  • Wi-Fi Calling settings don't transfer after switching devices and/or performing a factory data reset. You need to enable W-Fi Calling manually if you want to use it.


  1. Ensure the device is powered off.
  2. Simultaneously press and hold the Volume up and Bixby buttons.
    Volume up button
  3. While continuing to hold Volume up and Bixby, press and hold the Power button until the device vibrates and the Samsung logo appears then release all buttons.
    Note This action boots the device to the Android Recovery screen.
    Note Allow up to 15 seconds for the recovery screen to appear.

Re: Screen issue s10

Hi @useroLwD03m1sa ,


Based on the information you've provided the panel is defective, or has sustained damage. The next step is to visit a Samsung repair center, or due to the covid 19 virus contact them via phone (1 800 Samsung), online, or Samsung Members/Shop. Additionally, Ubreak can diagnose phones in regions where they operate; UB is partnered with Samsung US.
