Default red light when charging, red flashing light when trying to turn the phone on

I just woke up to find my phone off and trying to turn it back on just isn't working.

I don't know what to do here and taking the case off has took off one of the ports on the side.

Sounds like a corrupt boot partition, is your boot loader unlocked? have you recently flashed a boot image?

Reflash with fastboot else use sony's update service to reflash firmware, if that don't work then your phone may be screwed?

I haven't flashed or done anything.

I've stayed well clear of anything like that with this phone.

It is on stock firmware.

Then your best bet is to use sony's update service, I think it is called pc companion and reflash your firmware, it will ask you to hold the down volume button and connect the USB cable and then it will return your phone back to factory. That's all I can think of else return the phone and get them to fix or replace it.

Or yes i guess the red light could also indicate low battery, good thinking
