The LCD is broken and needs to be repaired. That green glitch was caused by damage to one of the traces going to the LCD. Essentially the screen itself was broken and when the controller (that's connected to the LCD) tried to power the screen it got damaged, thus the black screen. This is very common on the S4. Luckily, replacing the screen is quite easy. iFixIt hasan excellent guide available.

Unfortunately, it sounds like the LCD itself has been damaged, you will have to replace the entire screen to fix this. :-)

unfortunately you should replace the entire screen , it's costly but easy to change , you can find out how can you change the entire screen on youtube , there is so many tutorials , that's it ^___^
