Hello and welcome to Android Forums gatinsh!

Sorry to learn you are having problems. You seem to have done the sensible things to get your phone to boot.

There are a couple of options that I can think of...

1. Take it back to the Samsung Service Point or whoever repaired it, and ask them why it is not booting and to fix it.

2. You could try downloading and re-flashing the stock Samsung firmware for your model of phone and CSC code via Odin by carefully reading the instructions and links in #1.5 of 28 Galaxy S4 models - know yours?
