Default [Q] Screen won't turn on

I was at Tafe today and I was just browsing through G+ with the phone flat on the desk and the screen turned off. I pressed the power button expecting it to switch back on but since then it hasn't turned on. It was on 90% but I've tried charging it and it still won't turn on. It turns on and off (i can tell by the notification LED) and when it's on it still rings when someone calls, but the screen just won't turn. There's no backlight either.

I've tried holding the power button for 5 and 10 seconds, and a minute, and still nothing. What else can I try?

Would reflashing be worth a try? Or is that even possible without a screen?

It may be bricked softwared.don't know know.but it looks like your software messed up,and there is easy way to reflash it without touchscreen,just look around in google by typing " LG G2 D8XX kdz flash procedure,download same software and reflash it by puttin phone to download mode(combination of the keys)

are you the original owner of this phone? or have you replaced the lcd assembly before? its possible the ribbon cable is not seated correctly. but if youre the original owner, and you have never opened it, im guessing your LCD just went out.
