    When I plug my phone in the red light flashes instead of remaining steady, and the phone refuses to turn on. What's going on?

    The blinking light means a charging problem. If you've been using it intensely it could be too hot, in which case it will not charge until it cools down in order to protect the battery.

    Leave it for a bit, then try again. And then leave it for while to charge, because it sounds like the battery is flat too (it's better for the battery if you don't run it flat more often than necessary BTW).
