charging icon for 3 sec then black screen

Recently aquired tab z was supposedly left uncharged for 2 years. I replaced the broken screen and when charging it shows a red light near the power button which switches to green after a short time and it shortly shows sony on the screen and then the battery icon for 3-5 sec before going black. Otherwise can't get it to start, no combination of volume and power button etc.

- can these be issues from a dead battery or may these result from another fault?
- Does the charging led normally first show red and switch to green afterwards or is that a sign of a dead battery?

just let it charge for multiple hours connected to a wall charger and report back.

You could replace the battery or stop by your Local support

Re: charging icon for 3 sec then black screen

Finally got the tablet to work, replaced the screen and the flexcable for audio jack and power button, however the power button still doesn't work - apart from that the device works fine, any idea about the power button issue though?
