Default [Q] Help, phone not turning on or connecting to PC

Hey, Newbie here

So long story short, I water damaged my Xperia Z, bought a second hand one with a cracked screen and switched the main board into the water damaged phone.

Now the problem is that the charging light comes on when it's on charge but it's a dull red. When I take the phone off the charger the LED stays on. I've tried the Down+power button reset but it only makes the light blink a few times. I tried connecting it to PC companion but the computer won't read the device but the LED turns bright and the computer indicates there's a device attached (for about a second then disappears) which isn't recognizable.

I'm all out of ideas. What is the problem and what can I try to fix it?

Thanks

dull red charging light mean the battery is really dry..try connect your charger until the light change, sometime it takes several hour for the battery to get charge again after it been dry for too long..also why you don't change the battery altogether with your motherboard? maybe your original battery still functional...
