If your Android device is having problems or has a fault that prevents it from rebooting, you can use Recovery mode to hard reset it. When using an Android device, press and hold the Power and Volume Up buttons at the same time to enter Recovery mode. Even in this manner, however, the procedure differs from device to device.
1. In Android Mobile Phones (OnePlus, Pixel, etc.)

1. To begin, if your device is turned on, turn it off, and then simultaneously press the Power and Volume Down buttons (at the same time).
2. The device will not reboot normally; instead, you will see the word ‘Start’ in an arrow pointing to the power button, and you will need to scroll with the Volume Up and Down buttons and select the desired options with the Power button.
3. Using your volume down button, scroll down until you see the ‘Recovery mode’ option. To initiate the recovery mode, press the power button and select that option.
4. Your screen will reload, and a distressed robot with the message ‘No Command’ will appear. To access the recovery mode, press and hold the Power and Volume Up buttons at the same time.
5. Use the Volume down button to scroll through the available options until you reach the ‘Wipe data/factory reset’ option, then use the power button to select it.
6. Then, to confirm the reset, select ‘Yes’.
7. And when the reset is finished, you’ll be sent back to the same recovery mode menu. Use the Power button to select the ‘Reboot system immediately’ option, and that’s all there is to it.
2. In Samsung Phones
To begin, if your device is turned on, turn it off, and then simultaneously press the Power and Volume Down buttons (at the same time).
1. A Samsung logo will appear on the screen, followed by the words ‘Installing system update’.
2. After a while, you’ll see a notification on your screen that says ‘No Command.’ Wait 10-20 seconds at the same screen, and the device will enter Recovery mode automatically.
3. As previously stated, the Volume up and down buttons are used to cycle between the selections, while the Power button is used to pick one.
