    My S5 turned off by itself, the battery was still 80% full when it turned off. I could not turn the phone back on, charging the phone makes the "big charging icon" on the black screen of the off S5 blinks (stuck at 0% and blinking). I left my S5 for 5 hours and tried to turn the phone back ON but with no luck.

    It *sounds* like the battery's protection circuit is preventing the phone from charging for some reason. Usually, this happens because the battery was allowed to get too low on charge, but could also happen from excessive heat. Either way, your best bet at this point is probably to take it to the carrier store or a cell-phone repair shop. These Lithium Ion batteries can get pretty ugly if you try and force them to charge when they are warning you that something is wrong.
