    Exclamation Samsung Galaxy Epic display won't turn on...

    I don't know what's wrong with my phone, but the screen display is messed up. Sometimes, the screen will display if I keep clicking the power button one-hundred times, but other than that it won't budge. Everything thing else works when I press the power button, the keyboard lights up, the home button and other buttons light, just not the screen. Like I said, I have to repeatedly press the power button so that in a slight chance, the screen might display.

    I HATE THIS PHONE!

    Welcome to the forums.
    This might be a hardware issue between the screen and motherboard.

    Welcome to Android Central! That's frustrating. I agree with Golfdriver97, it sounds hardware-related. How old is the phone? Devices these days aren't always going to be like the indestructible Nokia bricks of yesteryear, mostly because there's a lot more going on in them.

    It's a little over a year old.

    That's unfortunate, because it probably means the manufacturer's warranty has expired. You might consider bringing it to a local cellphone repair shop to see if they have any ideas, and get an estimate for repair.
