    Hey everyone! I just joined here today, and I figured this'd be the best place to ask any questions to get the answer i'm looking for.

    I own a Samsung Galaxy S5, but I recently turned it on one day and the screen didnt turn on. I knew the phone was powered on, because the lights lit up and the buttons worked, and the phone made that 'bubble' touch sound.

    Everything on the phone works except the display. Its just blank, as if the phone was off.

    Hope I explained this problem well, I feel like I didnt.

    Anyone know any fixes?

    Cheers

    Hello and welcome to Android Forums Shades :D

    From your description, it sounds more likely that it is a hardware fault most likely associated with a connector cable coming loose... it happens on rare occasions. I would suggest taking it to a reputable repair centre.
