My device never got a Hit by anything. Or never dropped from any height.. Even there ain't any single scratch in my display...

But today suddenly my S5 phone's display totally gone to off.. Full black screen, like when we kept phone off..

OS is running. I can switch Power On/Off.. LED notification working.. Haptic key working..

I can't even boot into Recovery/Download mode, because display is still off/black..
Never rooted. Or never download any app without Play Store..

Try and backup what you can through Kies and copy SD card data and return to where you bought it

Boot to recovery mode and wipe the partition cache. That will resolve most issues.

Restore your backup.

If you don't have a backup, you should take note and do so in the future. You could try "dirty flashing" just the system files or a custom ROM. That will mess up installed apps but is likely to make your device usable and leave user files and photos intact.

As a last resort, try writing a full, stock backup to your phone with Odin. You could also try getting your phone repaired if it is under warranty, however if you have rooted it or incremented the Knox counter some carriers or Samsung may refuse you warranty service.
