    Welcome to Android Central! Can you tell if the phone itself is still on and working? Do you still get calls while the screen is black? If so, then the screen has probably failed, and you need to replace it. This kind of thing can happen spontaneously, unfortunately. Any recent moisture exposure? That's another common cause.

    I thought you meant that the screen remains black. You could try a new battery. You could also try booting into Recovery and wiping the cache partition: Reset: Samsung Galaxy S 4 | T-Mobile Support

    If you can get into Recovery Mode, try wiping the Cache Partition.

    Oops posted same moment. Battery sounds possibly suspect to me too.

    Maybe you can do the wipe cache partition blind.
    It's the 5th of 6 options that you scroll down with the volume down key and select with the power key. Give it a minute or so, the reboot (1st option) will be highlighted automatically again, press power and it would restart.
    Let us know if you want to try it and you can get a walk through.
