Why isn't my screen working? Or anything at all? (s5)


AC Question

So starting yesterday, my phone's been blacking out (the screen is dark but the phone still responding on the buttons) Also my phone is going super slow and I have to restart it many times to even get the screen on. And when I do, I cant get into settings because it says "system updating please wait" on the notification bar resulting in me having to restart the phone again

Welcome to Android Central! Did the system actually finish the update? Did you power the phone down or reboot in the middle of a system update? That's generally not a good idea.
