Samsung S5 screen is black, but buttons are responsive?

Phone screen randomly went black after an update. Taking out the battery does not work, holding down the power and the center button does not work.

My phone display boots with a white pixellated screen, then goes dark and unresponsive?

My Galaxy S5 was plugged in on the original charger. The phone 'rang' and when I looked at it the screen was black. I pushed the Home button to no avail. I unplugged it and still had the unresponsive black screen, but with the blue missed call indicator flashing. I removed the battery, replaced it and rebooted the phone. When it starts up it shows a white pixellated screen, does its usual bootup noises, then goes dark. When I push the Home button the 'all apps' and back buttons illuminate, but nothing works. I have tried: I detailed all of that in my question details. I think it was caused by: Absolutely no idea.

Since my last software update, my S5 doesn't mute when faced down?

S5 doesn't mute when faced down. I think it started since my last update. And once in a while, the ringtones to different contacts go to default. I have tried: On and off. took the battery out. restart. tried resetting the face down mode. I think it was caused by: Latest update maybe?!?!

Cannot use S5 after clicking on what looked like a remote control icon on the home screen?

Hi, I touched an icon on the locked home screen of my S5 by mistake and now the touch screen is completely unresponsive. I cannot even turn off the phone as I would need to click 'Power off' on the screen. It is not responding to anything. The screen has turned a shade darker and doesn't respond to anything. Your help would be much appreciated!

I have Samsung Galaxy S5 active and I tried to take a picture underwater, (only about 4 inches under the surface). about 30 seconds after I pulled it out the screen went black. All sounds and lights still work accordingly just the screen is black. I immediately removed the back and found water inside the back of the phone. I removed the battery and put it in rice overnight to no avail. What should I do now?
