“Hi, I dropped my Galaxy S4 to a floor, not tool high, just less than three feet. Now the screen is black and doesn’t work at all. There is no damage apparent, no bright pixels, just dead screen. Even though the screen is black, the phone is on. I can hear the rings but can’t answer it. Does anyone know if I could fix it without sending it off to Samsung or a repair place? Thanks in advance.”
