No communication from USB/LCD Screen lit but blank

I turned on my Taz 5 after a week of not using it. All I have now is a blank LCD screen and I am unable to communicate with the machine via USB. Any thoughts? Has the machine died? And if so why would that be? What are other possibilities? The machine is not very old, only about a year and a half.
Any help would be appreciated. This happened very suddenly. Here is the read out from the attempts to communicate via USB:

Flashed the firmware via Cura and it has come back will run tests now. The prior comm message was generated by Simplify3D
