    To start off my s6 has had a couple of problems and has actually bricked itself and when I flash the stock os through odin or even using kies it will say its worked but the phone only boots into system recovery and will only do anything if it is on charge, I'm not sure what else I can do to fix it, I have tried factory resetting it and wiping cache partition but nothing changed

    I'm not sure how the device could have bricked itself...however, if nothing is helping to restore, then you may be out of luck and need to have it replaced. It won't be covered under warranty since you have flashed the factory ROM via Odin...

    neither, one day it was fine and the next I took it off charge and the screen went black and it could only go into download mode and I know it costs near enough £200, thanks anyway

    Did you try to follow my thread below in this section to flash back to stock?

    What model of S6 do you have? Since you were rooted, you most have been on 5.0.2. Correct.

    If it were mine, since it's still under warranty, I'd try to have it replaced. Just make sure you flash it with the stock ROM (which Kies does). If some storage blew, there's no system in the phone, so it'll boot to recovery. (Hardware does go bad for no reason [at least none that's obvious - of course there's a reason] - it's called "infant mortality" in the industry.)
