Lot of people suffering this problem they don’t know how to delete Pattern Lock from their phones. If you use any third party app to set Pattern Lock then Uninstall it first. If you does not use any app then you may have been set it through the phone setting. Try to find it and remove.. If you can’t find then your final solution is “Hard reset”. This process will be performed after switching off the phone.

First, remove your phone battery and wait for 5 min. Then put and press power +Voume Up + home together and select factory reset.

If it Auto boot or auto restart – may be  Power switch is defective and is always depressed. May be your phone case is pressing on it. So, remove that case for little. After try to go recovery mood.

A : Reset your smartphone again. If it is failed or go wrong again, then try flash a new stock Rom. Your phone’s warranty won’t be void. Because Stock Rom is official Rom. – Stock Rom.

Your phone may be damaged. So ,I think that you have to install Stock Rom again. Your phone’s warranty won’t be void. Because Stock Rom is default and official Rom. – Stock Rom.
