Default S5 Screen problem

Hi everyone, been using my S5 for about 2 months ago and have been having a swell time with it. Last night i was surfing the net and suddenly the screen went blank! phone didn't go off or anything like that. I have restarted it a million times and still having the blank screen. Everything works, i still recieve calls but can't use it for anything else. Anyone experienced this or any suggestions as to what to do will be appreciated. Also just to note i bought it in Australia and currently not there so cannot return it.

No, it only makes the samsung start up sound but nothing shows on the screen except the led indicator light and the navigation buttons
