Check for Physical(Hardware) Damage
The most common reason why a smartphone screen suddenly stops working is hardware damage.

If the screen is cracked but it appears to be working when you apply pressure on it or in some portions, there may be a chance to salvage your data from the device. If the digitizer is broken but remains generally functional, you may still be able to use the screen with some limitations.
Screen replacement is the only permanent fix for a physically damaged or cracked screen. However, if you don’t want to send the phone in for repair right away and plan to, say, create a backup first, then you can try to see if the display is still functional.
