Samsung S5 keeps restarting after screen replacement

Hi,

after i replaced the screen, screen lights up and works normally but phone wont even boot to recovery mode. It just keeps restarting. When i put old screen back, screen is not working, but i know, that it booted because buttons light up. I dont really know what to do now. Any suggestions ? Thank you.

take the back frame off of the device, short out the two power button leads, to boot it without the button. see if it boots.

alright, next i would see if it boots to download mode. (not recovery)

its the same as booting to reocvery mode, but you use V- rather than V+

It booted to download mode without any problem. I'm just trying to reinstall OS

great. that was going to be the suggestion. Reloading the OS is best done by downloading the OEM stock Firmware, and Forcing it in through Odin

it doesnt seem like you need it, but i quickly threw this together for you, in case.

Maybe it's too late to help you, but LCD for G901F is very specific.

Here is the one I ordered, and my S5 is now OK.

I have just the same problem with my S5, download mode without any problem but I'm unable to reinstall OS because computer won't connect with the phone, I go this message when trying to restore with Heimdall:

Sorry. it is a good idea for most cases, but OP says he cant boot the device, OR get to recovery mode. Its a core file problem. he needs fresh software if it even is a software issue.
