I've been searching the EPIC forums, found similarities but not the same as what I am experiencing. Yesterday, I had my Epic in my clutch purse while I was in the store, sent a text before I placed it there. Once I returned home, I pulled it out to check the time and the screen was blank. I assumed that the phone somehow shut off so I went to power it down and nothing! So I did a battery pull and went to power the phone back up and noticed that the sound worked because I heard the Samsung intro, but the led light did not illuminate nor did anything appear on the screen!!! I again did a battery pull, also found online how to do the hard reset to it and nothing worked because everything on the screen has become nonresponsive. Even when I hook it up to the charger, the led light does not illuminate So to final attempt, I pulled the battery out for 1/2hr and then replaced it before I went to sleep. Left it on the charger overnight. Woke up this morning and still nothing. Last I can add is last week, I downloaded the free app Words with Friends and have been playing it all weekend. That's the only recent thing I have done differently. I am very anal about my electronics so it's always been covered with a screen protector and a hard case. I don't drop the phone either. Can someone PLEASE HELP ME!
