Rebooting recovery boot loop?

I have a s5 (Verizon) that all i can get is the boot animation with Rebooting recovery in blue in top left corner. I have tried to boot into recovery, safe mode, download mode. I've tried to use odin to reinstall factory image, and i still end up with same boot looping. What do i do?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi James,

What caused this issue? Was it a failed OTA update, a root attempt, a bad flash of a ROM, or other scenario? This is the type of issue that I love having XDA forums around for, since it has great resources for firmware and recovery. Spend some time here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/verizon-...

You may need a different version of the firmware to odin on the device, or perhaps a soft unbrick method is available for your case. More information will help us out in determining the best course of action. Good luck!

I actually dont know what happened to the phone, as i recieved it like this. i have tried the different version of firmware through odin, tried the hard reset, i can reach the maintanence boot mode, but to select any of the three options it just continues to try to boot with no success. I cant get it to boot into safe mode.

sorry, I'm trying to explain it clearly.
