    Samsung Edge 7 stuck in a boot with front light pulsing

    A friend has a Edge 7 and it's stuck in some kind boot loop. It's hard to see what is actually wrong with it as there is some kind of writing on the screen but it's really dark with a deep blue writing, so dark you cant make out what is says.
    The light is pulsing on the front and the writing on screen changes from one screen (looks like 2 battery symbols) to another screen with 2 samsung galaxy edge 7 writing but I cant say for sure as it's so hard to read, to me it looks like recovery mode. I've been through all the button pressing tricks but nothing.
    Once I get some charge in it I cant turn it off. If I connect to the CP I get a ding dong then it disconnects but this is random sometimes the PC doesn't see it.
    Is there anyway to get the back working ?

    Sorry its an Edge 6 not a 7; SM-G925F it's unlocked and I've been trying to get some FW for it but the sites I'm on are saying up to 8hrs for a 1.8gb file. If anyone has fw for it let me know or when I can get it abit faster

    Thanks , it took me a while to figure out which was the DL button there were that many, I'll give it a go now

    I have tried one FW but that failed right nr the end. I'm not 100% sure the phones in A-OK condition as it also has a hairline crack the length of the screen which hints it's took a bang of some sort

    It's not charging, when I connect to a charger or the PC it shows something on the screen but it's,that dark you can't make it out.
    I held the power..vol down...home button in and stuck it in to the sub on the PC.
    The PC makes a noise but doesn't show in my comp. As soon as I hear that I let go and press the vol up button and can just about make out two download symbols. I can then start up odin 3.12. Odin sees the phone but once I select a .md5 it eventually fails...

    Is it dead for good ?

    I eventually managed to get it to flash up with Odin but the screen is still very dark and it's still not booting up. I can get it to go into download mode but the screen is still that dark you can't read anything on it.
