It sounds to me like the screen you're referring too is the "Download Mode" screen.... To get the phone out of that mode & start up normally again you need to do the following to restart the phone:

Press and hold the "Vol Down"+"Power" Buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until you see the phone shut down then release the buttons. Your phone will reboot & start up like normal
