    My Lumia 1020 screen went black earlier and the phone switched off. It won't switch back on and soft resets are having no effect. The Windows light isn't coming on when I connect it to the charger or a computer.

    If it helps, the phone was charging and in use when it switched off. I've had some problems with it recently (mainly it freezing and needing a soft restart) but nothing like this.

    Any help would be much appreciated - my laptop died yesterday and I could really do with at least one functioning piece of technology!

    A similar problem (including the freezing issues) happened with my L1020 a few months ago where it was plugged in when I decided to restart it... but mine went straight to a BOOT ERROR. I'm suspecting that your L1020 has a different case - it could just be a problematic or dead battery.

    Nonetheless, try taking it to a service center to have it diagnosed and/or repaired.
