    Everytime I hit the power button or the home button to turn it on, it goes straight to asking for an alternate password. I don't know my alternate passcode and have relied on the fingerprint scanner to let me into the phone, but after getting the screen, and presumably the home button, a little dirty it doesnt even give me the option to use it.

    Welcome to Android Central! I don't think the S5 will let you set up the fingerprint scanner unless you enter an alternate password. Think hard--what might you have set as your password?
