My s6 active volume keys are missing, and yet it still somehow managed to get into odin mode. I know if you have volume keys you can press and hold volume down, power, and home button, but I can't do that because of my missing volume keys. Would anyone happen to know how to exit odin mode without the volume keys? Odin mode may also be called download mode or factory mode. Also, I can't use the volume keys.

Update: The phone no longer displays anything on the screen and does not appear to power on when I press and hold the power button.
 
There is no "Factory Mode". There is a "Factory Reset", which would be just a screen offering you the options for doing such a reset, or there is "Safe Mode", which is used to run the device in a restricted mode to determine if a problem is hardware or software related. I am going to assume you mean "Safe Mode".

Below is ways to get out of "Safe Mode". However, please note, that if your button is 'stuck' or broken, it is completely possible that the device will continue to go back into "Safe Mode" until the button is fixed.

To get out of Safe Mode, please try the following.

1. Touch and Hold the "Power" key.

2. Tap "Power Off".

3. Once the phone is off, Touch and Hold the "Power" key again to restart.

The phone should now be out of "Safe Mode".

If the "Safe Mode" is still running after you restart your phone, I would then check to make sure your "Volume Down" button is not stuck. Check to see if it has anything stuck in it as well, dust, etc. Anything like this can cause the phone to go into, and get stuck in, "Safe Mode".


If that doesn't work try this...

Use the "Status Bar" to turn off "Safe Mode'. Pull down (swipe) the "Status Bar" of your phone. Now tap the "Safe Mode" button. This should turn "Safe Mode" off. Now your phone will automatically restart, so that it boots up out of "Safe Mode".

And lastly...


If you want to get rid of/disable "Safe Mode".

1. First turn off the phone.

2. Next press and hold "Power" until you see the manufacturers logo on the screen, then release the power button.

3. "Quickly" press "Volume Down" and hold it for few seconds until you see the message "Safe Mode: OFF" or something similar.

4. If you wanted re-enable it, simply repeat the steps above, and you should see "Safe mode: ON" rather than off.
