Hold the power button down for at least 20 seconds before you restart to perform a soft reset. You may not have held it down long enough. Try the hard reset method listed in the article if the soft reset does not work.

My Galaxy Note4 refuses to recognize my 4-digit password or pin code to unlock the screen. I do not want to factory reset until I have backed up my data, especially family videos and voice recordings?

I believe that I have the WiFi, Bluetooth, and data usage OFF. Can I undo or eliminate the password since it won't accept it anyway.
