Here is my suggestion, reboot the phone into recovery mode. (it's ok if its a stock recovery)
After going into recovery do a "factory reset" and see if the phone starts up normally.
There is at least a 50/50 chance that it will.
If it still does not boot then you need to go to SamMobile: http://www.sammobile.com
and get the stock official ODIN flash firmware for your specific phone model.
I would have given you the exact download link for your specific phone if you would
have been more SPECIFIC and added the EXACT model of your phone in your post.
(i9500-i9505-i9505G and so on)
Have a great day, enjoy!
Don't forget it takes less time to click the "THANKS" button than it takes to type "thank you"
(unless you type very fast).
