Turn off the device then press volume up while connecting the device to your PC. It should boot to fastboot, if it doesn't then it's most probably that you flashed the wrong boot image or didn't follow whichever guide you were following precisely.

If that's is the case then you can follow this guide to solve your bootloop.
Briefly:
  1. Turn off your phone for at least 10 mins.
  2. Restart your phone into recovery either by volume down - power button combination or volume down usb connection combination.
  3. Select wipe data/factory reset.
If you have custom recovery then try wiping dalvik cache before wiping all data.
Wiping data doesn't remove your custom ROM nor remove your custom recovery. But it will remove root.
Never panic while doing anything to your device. There is always a solution to whichever problem you may face.

Lastly should you find it difficult to do anything of the above mentioned then take your device to a service center.

Thank you for your answer, but the problem that i can't turn off the phone even when i use button combination; it's always rebooting until it get discharged
Do you have any other way to get to the recovery page or to stop this rebooting !

You can follow this thread.
One of the posts there says:
Hold Vol down and power for soft reboot. As soon as the screen goes off to reboot quickly switch to recovery combo (bixby + up + power) it should boot to recovery
Your recovery combination should be volume up + power.
Another says:
I managed to fix my phone. After leaving it for 24 hours the battery was fully drained. After charging again i could boot to twrp and restore my nandroid backup.
Here you can also drain the phone and leave it, then press volume up while connecting the usb.

Either of them should work with your situation, as they both have the same circumstances as yours.

The main point of what I just said, is to either get your phone to soft reboot or completely drain the phone from charge and try booting to recovery again.

Unfortunately friend you have no more options left. You have to send it to an authorized service center.
They will fix this issue for you, leave this matter to the professionals and don't further complicate things by messing with your device unnecessarily.

i had that exact same problem. what you need to do is open up the back and disconnect the battery. then i hope you have all its usb drivers installed, if not install them. then you need to use this https://github.com/MTK-bypass/bypass_utility you can also look at some guides on youtube on how to set everything up as the github guide aint all that specific. then run that main.py and while holding, if i remember correctly, volume down connect the phone without battery being connected. after some tries it should say sth along the lines of protection disabled or sth and then without disconnecting flash your rom using sp flash tool. that worked for me. and also dont be put off if that bypass tool doesnt work on the first try. it took me like atleast 30 tries to get it working.
hope it helps
