Info 2 Screen fades away after boot

Good Evening,

I have a problem with the Xarc of my friend.
When it boots it shows the normal bootscreen, but then it shows the homescreen for a millisecond and fades away. Then it reboots again, en so on.

I have searched the forum about the same problem, but didn't find it.
Also I have flashed the stock rom and kernel, different custom Roms with their kernels but all have the same problem, after the bootscreen the screen dies.

The phone charges like normal with the battery-logo on screen.

I started to think its maybe a hardware issue, but I wanna try here first, maybe someone could help me out.

PS. Maybe my English is not the best.

Not a hardware issue. That's pretty much a bootloop. Reflash an ftf and/or repair with PC Companion and you should be fine

Flashing the stock rom, or another rom I have already tried.

The problem with the PC companion is that the phone is not detected because it is every time on for a short amount of time, that's to little for the program to detect it.
