    press and hold together:*Volume Up*+Home**+*Power button, until you see Samsung logo.

    Release held keys when Recovery Mode appears on the screen.

    Select "Reboot System Now" using*Volume buttons*to navigate andPower button*to confirm.

    Be sure not to hit the wipe data/factory reset by accident!!!

    Try holding the volume down button and power button together. That's just worked for me
    Nibor Gaming and Jarvid like this.

    If the power button + volume up + home button doesn't work for you. Then try holding the volume down + power button! The second option worked for me. I was so terrified when it did coz it was stuck on a musical.ly video of a girl. LOL

    True, press and hold volume down + power button for 7 seconds, locked or unlocked this will restart your phone. Works on many Samsung phones, including my Galaxy Alpha.
