Try either restoring a Zune update, or re-flashing the stock ROM. There should be downloads and instructions for the latter in the device-specific part of the forum.
Win8/Windows RT projects:
List of desktop apps for hacked RT devices

WP8 projects:
Native Access WebServer and Libraries
WP8 Interop Unlocks
Storage Cleanup tool

WP7 projects:
XapHandler, Root Webserver, OEM Marketplace XAPs, Bookmarklets collection (Find On Page), Interop-unlock hacks.


Do not private message me with questions that should have been posted on the forum! Not only are you wasting your time - I'm not going to bother writing an answer to such a question for only one person - but I will probably block you from PMing me in the future as well.

Alternatively, make sure the SD card (if you use one) is seated correctly. However, I think the most likely problem is just hardware failure, in which case you probably need to get the phone replaced (I assume it's under warranty).

Hi, it's impossible to start on MAGLDGR mode. This phone only accept Download mode, the yellow triangle. There is another way to re-flash from download mode?

After flashing with Focus 1.3 i917 AT&T USA and i917R ROGERS CANADA RETAIL ROMs, using WP7 downloader v. 7.21, it's stucked and just displays SAMSUNG.

Sorry, almost forget, Zune doesn't recognize my device.

I re-flash using I917UCK3 with similar results. This are the processes on WP7:
