    Default Samsung Galaxy turns on but then turns off immediately.

    My new galaxy s4 is acting weird....
    I recently had the screen replaced because the phone fell and it broke.
    But now that it's replaced when I turn it on it goes to the samsung logo and everything but right when the purple logo comes on it turns itself off. To get it working again you must take out the battery and wait a few seconds so it can turn on again and goes through the same thing.
    I have no idea why but all I want to know is did anyone else have this problem and is it fixable?
    I don't have guarantee so I can't get a free new one

    Can you boot into recovery mode? Hold down home, power and volume up at the same time until it vibrates. Let me know if it still does the same thing

    That's download mode. You hit volume down instead of up
    Does it stay on at least?

    Yes it does but I'm pretty sure I hit the volume up button.

    Hmm, what are the options? If you're in recovery I would try a factory reset to see if that works with the rebooting issue

    Now it turns on, but I can only stay on the phone for like 10 seconds.
    Then it turns itself off.
    And to get it on again I have to take out the battery and put it back in.

    Turn it off, and turn it back on. When it's turning on hold the menu key (left of the home button) and this should boot into safe mode. See if that stays on for longer

    OK. Then I'd suggest flashing a stock ROM via Odin. You can get these on SamMobile.com just make sure you get the one for your exact model number
