s7 edge black screen

My galaxy s7 edge screen went black for no apparent reason. The phone has not been dropped. As a matter of fact, this is my 2nd Galaxy s7 edge because my first one also has screen problems. I have tried everything with this phone and nothing seems to work. For example, I held down the volume down button and the power on button at the same time and nothing happened.

I do receive calls on the phone but I can't see the screen to answer it.

Anyone else have this problem?

Yes, I have the same question.  After all the help that Verizon Tech Help and the new app Tech Coach has tried only made my phone worse.  The phone gets very hot when in use.  It started with the black screen.  I can use the phone on my blue tooth but cannot access my screen.  Cannot turn it off, cannot answer calls.

Not at all helpful!  Problem still exists.  I'm distraught that the help only made my phone worse.  I took into a store and a salesperson immediately tried to sell me a new phone.  She tried to tell me that my case was from a 3rd party when it is clearly shown on the receipt that I purchased it from the Verizon store.  I am highly suspicious.
