Huawei P20 Pro Safe Mode cannot be terminated - Solved

If Safe Mode, also known as Safe Mode, has been activated on your Huawei P20 Pro, it can usually be easily deactivated by a restart.

But what if the Safe Mode reappears every time after a restart and this can no longer be terminated?

Then there is very probably the following cause for the malfunction:

Huawei P20 Pro

The volume key of the Huawei P20 Pro has been jammed.

Here you should now check whether the used protective cover pinches the volume key and this then leads to the activation of the safe mode.

Dust and dirt trigger the button

Dirt or dust can also cause the button to trigger permanently and activate the safe mode when booting. Try the area here to clean the volume button.


Unfortunately, it is also possible that the key has a defect. Here it helps to visit only a repair shop, since the volume button is usually controlled by the circuit board.

We hope that you could only identify the protective cover as the cause and that the safe mode could be terminated after the next restart of the Huawei P20 Pro again.
