Crashing during boot and cant charge device

One morning i went to charge the device and it wouldn't respond via power socket charger, and when i connect it to my PC it does the disconnnect/reconnect tones roughly every 2-3 secs and doesn't connect.


When i try to power it on i get to the white background screen with SONY on it, then the colors... kinda poos the bed random strips of blue and other colours take over the white sony screen then it will die at some point. 


Sometimes when I have it connected to the PC it will have a solid red light (unsure what that means in this instance) and will complete part of the boot secquence and ask for the pass code then crash slighly after. I've tried using the xperia companion but it requires the phone to link to PC which i can get also its advice of holding volume up/down or both with the power button to boot in safe mode has no effect.


What else can i do/try ? any other advice ?
