Hi @bad service Do you still have warranty(which is 2 years) You should be able to have it repaired in any case. One customer with warranty had it replaced. see here https://eu.community.samsung.com/t5/galaxy-s21-series/it-s-21-plus-black-screen/td-p/5876129

Exactly the same thing happened to me last night. I asked if this was a known issue and they said NO, that this was the first time ever they had heard of it. (What a load of bs). Then told me to buy a new phone or take it to repair for $156.96 (that price may change depending on what they have to do). Defeated I made an appointment to get it looked at by a technician. This is very disappointing since they know it is a manufacturer's defect and just tell their customers to go and f themselves
The warranty is 1 year not 2. I have had my phone for 18 months and they said there was nothing they could do since the warranty was expired
BTW, I kept trying this morning after letting the phone charge all night. What worked for me was plugging it to the laptop. The laptop made the sound of a new device being plugged, but it didn't show it. So I did a soft reset. Nothing happened, so I unplugged it and plug back in, did the reset again. The screen came back on after like 4 attempts with the laptop. You should try this! Good luck
