White screen on startup, but can get into download mode

On some random day, my phone started showing a white screen which occurred when I plugged it into USB port of my workstation. This was unusual since I had used the same port before. Phone can get into download mode, but not into recovery and when booting up, it shows a plain white screen.What should I do here?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Basically, this is a hardware problem. Are you familiar with “sudden death?” Well, this is one version of it. I’ve talked with an authorized Samsung tech last year regarding this issue and according to him the problem is with the eMMC controller getting busted.

This is a problem you can’t fix on your own and if you want it fixed, you need to have an expert tech to take a look at the phone.
