Likely not an eletronics related issue. Seems more like firmware issue.

Agree, much more likely to be a FW problem.

How can I get into safe mode on a 840 EVO with 256 GB? It is the upper right PCB: http://www.hardwareluxx.de/media/jphoto ... 50x633.jpg

I found the way to Safe-Mode: You have to short the 2 pins next to the JTAG pins. In Safe Mode, a UART interface in 2 other pins near them is available. More details can be found here: http://www2.futureware.at/~philipp/ssd/ ... Manual.pdf
