Solid red light, device wont power on. PLEASE HELP!


    When I insert the battery the red status indicator light turns on solid red, and does not turn off until I take my battery out, regardless of if it's charging. But when it is charging, the red light gets brighter slightly, still solid red. If i take the battery out and leave it plugged in, the solid red light stays on. The screen will not turn on, and the device shows no other signs of life. I have tried all combinations of holding buttons down for extended amount of times, removing the battery, plugging and unplugging the charger, and changing the location of charging. It is the proper charger and I have let it charge for hours and hours. I cannot figure out what is wrong. Please, please help.
