Default Please help with phone not booting

Hey guys. Been around for a while and have never encounted this problem. I went to restore back to stock firmware after running a custom rom.. both 4.3... I added the firmware to odin. It failed before it started and rebooted th phone. Figured out that the firmware I downloaded must of been corrupt/incompletly downloaded.. stuck on samsung boot logo.. tried to restore a fresh complete rom but still stuck on boot logo.. is there something I can do to fix it other than sen it in.

You don't mention recovery .
Usual would be to format sdcard system data cache boot to download mode and flash stock rom .
