    Started with a camera error which I still have camera failed... Tried everything which I found on YouTube videos to fix it. Then went to do a factory reset - no password..
    Tried factory reset - hard set and soft set . wont allow me .
    Every time I reboot phone holding 3 buttons still home screen comes up. So still have phone intact with the camera not working..
    Is there a way to reset the password ? Its not the same as the oneI use to open the phone..
    Please help

    I would recommend downloading and flashing the stock Samsung firmware for your model of Galaxy S5, CSC and Product code, as per the instructions and video in the links of #1.11 of 42 Galaxy S5 models - Dummies Guide. This requires you to boot into Download Mode on your phone...

    I had this same problem and flashing the stock software fixed it.

    My camera problem was caused by running the wrong kernel. I have a G900T1 and I was using a G900T kernel.
