I you are like me... I have similar issue with S8+ and phone out of warranty which means big bill to be fixed with money I don't have.. If you are willing to accept that whatever is currently on the phone is lost and you can accept to start again (unless of course you have a back up via Samsung Cloud) then you can try flashing the rom. For me I only did this once I had accepted that I could completely kill the phone if something goes wrong. If you can get the phone to download mode, then you might have a chance. I think this was, make sure the phone is off and then press and hold power, bixby and volume down (google it) Google it lots as I am not an expert, but the basics are: - Download software called, Odin (I have version 3.13.1) which is freeware - Download software called, Frija which is also freeware. This is were you can obtain the correct system files to re-write the firm ware. Just make sure you dowload the correct CSC version which is often determined by the original telecoms provider; you are looking for a 3 digit code. For me in the UK it was vodafone so it is VOD, but now I am in Australia with Telstra, so is is TEL. one I know in the USA is AT&T which is ATT. With these to bits of software on a PC, a USB and your phone and you might be able to get a funcitonal phone again. Check out other forums for support if you are not able to go down the Samsung route. Hope this helps.
