If the factory settings doesn’t solves your problem then you need to completely flash your device by a different or latest firmware. To do this you don’t need  to be a technical person as I will show you how easily you can flash any Samsung device running android.

Here are the instructions for flashing Samsung Official/Stock (Original Firmware) using Odin on Windows PC.

Enable USB Debugging in Developer Options – Read how to enable developer options here.

Good USB data cable.

Windows PC (Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.x or Windows 10).

Odin is a program that can utilize the MD5 file to install ROMs to your device. MD5 files can be anything from recoveries, modems, and even ROMs.

Once you download the firmware, the downloaded firmware may be a zip file or md5 file. If it is a zip file then extract it with any zip archiver (like WinRAR, 7zip or Windows Explorer) because Odin recognizes only md5 file formats.

Once everything is downloaded, put all files in a single folder for your convenience & follow below steps to flash your Samsung with Stock ROM.

Steps to flash Samsung Stock ROM using Odin

I have used Samsung Galaxy S4 in my  flashing process.

Right click on “Odin” and select “Run as administrator” for opening Odin with administrative preveledges. (see image above).

 

Odin, just after opening will look like the image above.

The MD5 file would go into the AP box.  The AP box will be your best friend. You don’t need to worry about any other Boxes. So only concentrate on AP box which is pointed in image below.

Note: In older versions of Odin, the AP box is also called as PDA box, So if you see PDA instead of AP than don’t worry, consider the PDA box as AP box.

 

This is the AP box that will be needed to flash any file.


Once the file is in the box, you would now need to turn off your device, and reboot into Download Mode.

There are two methods to put Samsung Smartphones into Download Mode. Try both.

Method 1: Power off your device & Power it on by holding: Volume Down + Home  Key + Power Key at the same time.

If above method doesn’t work, Try method 2

Method 2: Power off your device & Power it on by holding: Volume Down + Power Key at the same time.

After that the device will show something like below image. Press Volume Up Key and you get the downloading screen just like the second image in below image.

 

 

Once your device gets in Download Mode, you can plug in your device to PC. You will need to wait several minutes, as ODIN, your PC, and the device all talk to each other.
After some time has passed, upward of several minutes, you should see a box that is colored and has a type, and a number: e.g. ‘COM:9’ That means your PC recognizes the device and everything is ready to go. The number is irrelevant. (It will depend on which USB port on your computer you plugged the device cable into).

Note the COM:3  or COM:9(or any port odin shows means your device detected), and make sure you selected the MD5 file in the AP box. Now, to begin, just click Start.

When ODIN is done, you should see a box that will say reset or passed (depending on which version you have, you may see either or both.). At this point it is ok to remove your device.

ODIN has completed the flash, and by now, the device should be going through the reboot screen.

Warning:

Do not disconnect the cable or turn off the device while flashing

I am not responsible if something goes wrong with your device (use this AT YOUR OWN RISK)

This process takes maximum 20 minutes

Flashing unofficial firmware will increase the flash counter

Flashing official firmware won’t increase the flash counter and won’t cancel the warranty of your device

If your device stuck in boot loop after downgrading, factory reset your device from recovery mode (Vol up + Home + Power)

Last Solution is Redownload the files. (old downloaded may gets corrupt).
