Why is my Samsung Galaxy stuck at an Android downloading screen?

My Samsung Galaxy was not turning on so I searched for what to do. I saw something about rebooting it so I did, now my screen has a picture of an Android guy digging and there is writing that says “Downloading…do not turn off target!!!” It’s been there for an hour and a half, what do I do?

      As mentioned above,you need to press VOLUME UP + MENU BUTTON + POWER BUTTON at a same time to get your phone to normal state.

    Try pulling out the battery, and then leave it for a while. Then put it back on and try. If you flashed your galaxy with a firmware, i think you might have did something wrong in the process

    Hold the power button until it shuts down or restarts.Now,you need to enter into recovery mode by pressing and holding VOLUME UP + MENU BUTTON + POWER BUTTON.

    NOTE :- Do not press VOLUME DOWN button.
