Default [Q] Is this a brick?

I think I may have a brick. The phone is on with the word "Sony" and nothing is happening. It will not switch off. I was trying to install a flashable ROM from the SDcard using XZDualRecovery and KitKat pre-rooted ROM but I think it has ended up without an OS. Is all lost?
Device 1: Sony Xperia Z, Android 4.4.2 rooted
Device 2: Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.4 LTE, Android 4.4.2 rooted

Just reflash it via Flashtool, SUS or Emma. You can turn it off with power+volume up combination, just hold that buttons together till the phone vibrate three times. Make sure that ur battery is not empty.
