[Q] RED LED Light, Phone won't start up

Hi guys,

I am having some problems. Last light, my phone ran out. I charged it, and when I woke up this morning, it won't start up. Every time I plug it into the charger, it gives a RED LED light at the top. Every time I pull it out of the charger, the RED LED disappears. It is running a pre-rooted version of Android KitKat 4.4, so I guess that means it has lost warranty...
I have not tried plugging it into a PC yet.

Please help, thanks.

No, it couldn't be recognized by any programs (SONY PC COMPANION, Flashtool etc)

Very weird: a minute ago, it was charging, wouldn't boot up, still red led like before etc... And I didn't realize my laptop was on low battery and ran out, and my phone stopped charging. And the phone started up automatically after that? It had 3% battery, so it was not charging.

The battery keeps going from 3 percent to 4 and back.

The phone will not be recognized when off, when off keep pushing volume up and connect via USB to PC, it will be recognized in Flashmode and flash a new FTF 4.4 from Flashtool.

If it turned on then leave the phone under charge (Wall Charger) for at last 4 hours and check again, if it still give you problems then I will recommend to do a Factory Reset or flash a new KK and wipe everything, Data, Appslog and Cache.
