    Unhappy [Q] Samsung epic working but black screen?

    My Epic's screen turned black yesterday for no apparent reason however the touch screen still works...

    if i touch and scroll the lock up it still makes the sounds and i can guess were to touch to turn my alarm off on the black screen and that works, as all the buttons! i just cant see the screen anymore,

    i did not install anything new, last thing i remember doing is just taking a picture. now i have a working phone with a black screen how do i fix this?

    also, i cant even see the vol down camera power screen

    help please

    _____________________________________________________________________________

    Update: after ltting my phone sit on the charger for about 3 hours it came back on
    BUT it went right back to the previous (working but all black screen) problem wen
    i made a call which i now remember is what triggered it yesterday

    I just tried getting into download mode and it did not work or show up
    anyy further suggestions? if not can i ask the sprint store 4 help if i rooted my phone and unlocked it for boost?

    PS. (i been making outgoin calls for months now n this never happened even with it rooted & inlocked)

    thanx 4 taking the time to answer my questions

    Have your tried pulling your battery out for about 30 seconds and replacing it?

    I had this exact same problem 2 weeks ago. Bad news: there is no fix for it. Good news: take it to sprint and they will replace the phone for $35 or $0 if you have the insurance.

    As mentioned above, your phones screen is dead. A trip to a Sprint service center is in order. There is no "fix" short of replacing the failed part(s) which may include the screen, display driver, or any other mainboard components.
