    Sounds like a conflict of some kind.
    Have you installed new firmware recently?
    Try removing external sd card if you have one, and reboot.
    You can re flash your firmware with Odin if still a problem, but may be easier to return under warranty.

    Rooting may well have caused the problem.
    To debrand you need to unlock first, and don't know of a free method.
    Safest thing to do is to reflash with Orange firmware. This will remove root.

    Rooting voided your warranty anyways so you need to reflash. If the phone was locked to Orange you need the Orange FW otherwise open european will be fine.....
