My phone is a Samsung Galaxy S4 and it turns on and loads to the Samsung Galaxy S4 page and then turns off.. what should I do?

It sounds like you could have a hardware issue. This could be something as simple as a stuck button (you should try fiddling with the buttons to fix this), or it could be something worse that would be harder to detect.

Try removing and reinserting your battery, then following the procedure outlined in this article to do a Factory Reset: Perform a factory reset on Android Device. If you still can't complete the process, try removing your SD card (don't reinsert it) and see if that does the trick.

If your buttons aren't stuck and the battery/SD card/Hard Reset steps don't help, bring your device in to your carrier for servicing. They should be able to help you out.

How to fix Samsung S4, suddenly died and went black, doesn't seem to be charging?

I was on Facebook Messenger app, about 50% still on battery then it suddenly went black and unresponsive. Tried plugging into charger but I don't know if it's charging, there's no indication and unresponsive. I pressed on power button and it will show the Samsung S4 logo briefly then turn black/off again. What is wrong and how to fix this? Thanks

Samsung Galaxy Note turns off before booting up?

However, in down-loader mode (power button, down button and home button), the screen will stay on permanently.

This might be a problem with firmware then. If you can enter the downloading mode, then use it to reflash your smartphone. First, download an official firmware (unrooted) from SamMobile. You will need to type your full model number, such as "Galaxy NOTE4 (SM-N910C)" (yours may be different, of course). Then, select your country and carrier to download the firmware. Then, follow steps 2-16 of our tutorial on reflashing Samsung Galaxy smart devices. If that still does not let you boot your smartphone up, then send the smartphone to a Samsung service center for repairs.
