    My s8 has been in the black screen of death all morning but still has a light flashing at the top. I've tried holding down the volume down and power buttons but nothing happens. I've held this for several minutes now and still nothing.

    You should only have to hold the power button down for about 30 seconds maximum to cause the phone to restart. If it doesn't, it could be in a sort of hard brick state, executing the same code over and over. That would require a repair shop. (Keep the charger plugged in for at least 4 hours before taking it to them.) If it's still under warranty, contact Samsung, of course. (The chances are that you'll lose all your data, whichever way you go.)
