I installed the cyanogenmod 11 nightly like a week ago on my galaxy note 2 and all was running perfectly until this morning.
When I woke up this morning the phone screen was black. The phone is actually working, I can hear emails notifications, phone ringing etc.
The buttons light up when i press them. When I connect it to the PC I can browse the phone contents etc. All seems to function except the screen.
The battery is charged. I tried to remove the battery for a long time and try again but still nothing.
I can't get into recovery or download mode as the screen is blank (sometimes there is a like a weird area at the top where there are like different colored pixels present). I know people will say the screen might be damaged but last night before I went to bed it was all fine, the phone was placed on the table, and this morning when I picked it up screen is blank.
I want to flash back the stock firmware. However I can't get into download mode in order to use Odin. Is there any other way to get into download mode or hardware reset the phone?
Any suggestions are welcomed.
EDIT: The touch screen also seems to work when I touch it as I can for example call numbers for which I had speeddial scortcuts but it is still completely blank.
