Prompt xperia p no charging lights, no usb detect,does not boot (not even the kernel screen

hello everybody,
i used to be active on the x10 forum.
but recently i switched to xperia P.
i unlocked the bootloader,
used fastboot to flash custom boot.img,
fastbooted custom kernel (FreeXperia),
installed cm10.zip with the CWM included in kernel,
everything works except wifi and bluetooth (which i guess is the rom's fault, so i dont really mind)
and then i installed apps from the cm10 file manager.
it detects my 16gb internal memory.
but my titanium backup and some other apps says it cannot access my internal memory, so it doesnt show any apps. (usb is disconnected)
so i thought mayybe some apps dont have access, so i thought i should mount my internal memory (although it already works for my cm10 file manager).
that was a very stupid decision because i used this code from this website which i got after i googled and used it on my terminal emulator.
guess what happened? my device got stuck/hang/frozen.
then when i pressed the power button, it was totally blank, no response and the screen went off.
i tried force shutdown by pressing and holding the volume-up & power button at the same time for a long time, that didnt work either, it had no effect, there was not even a vibration.
and when i charge it, there is no charging light.
it doesnt boot, it doesnt show me the kernel screen, or the CWM screen.
this is worse than a bootloop.
anyone who has previous experience with this?? or has a suggestion on how to repair?
any advice will be much appreciated
i always love (present tense) mohawk

I think you've posted in the wrong forum - should be in Q/A.
Is your phone able to detect in flash mode? (while it is off, hold DOWN volume key and connect USB - check for LED illuminated)
Is your phone able to detect in fastboot mode? (while it is off, hold UP volume key and connect USB - check for LED illuminated PURPLE)

Hi.

1. Have you tried to charge it through the charger, instead of the usb por of PC?
2. If you tried, did you let it charge for at least 30 minutes? (Sometimes the battery drains so much that the phone needs time even to show it´s charging.)

If the battery charges, you should try flashing a Stock Rom through Flashtools.

If it doesn´t, then I can´t say you should do it but if I were in ur position, I would surely open my phone and try to charge this battery somehow. Google a lot to learn how it works, the wires, what is positive and negative and bla bla bla because your biggest problem NOW is not having power to work with the phone.

Hope you have good luck!

=)
Sorry for my Noobness and thank you for your help!

i have reason to believe it maybe related to the battery. maybe the battery is still running. how do i physically shut it down? the holding power button and volkume-up button trick doesnt work.

Use this guide to open the phone up and just disconnect the battery for a few minutes. Then try connecting in either fastboot/flash mode. The phone may need to be repartitioned and reflashed.

Question Same issue

Hi Davin-J

Did you finally solved this problem? I have the same now. And my battery should be good.

...............................

1/2 day later:
It was the battery. I managed to get it back to life as copper62472 told us. The strange thing was, that the Sony charger didn't charge the phone battery; may be because I bricked the phone before with system/data/cache wiped and formatted. I was not even able to restore it with SUS, because the phone was not detected at the USB.
Then I charged the battery outside the phone with a current limited power supply. After putting the charged battery back into the phone, restoring with SUS worked without a hitch.
