Blackberry Curve 8310 Solid Red Light HELP

So I went out to take the trash at my apartments and found near it a bag of stuff.
In the bag was a Blackberry 8310!!!It's in pretty rough shape though,all scratched and scuffed.
In the bag was a spare keyboard,a spare ball(the thing in the middle of the device),the battery cover,and the side plastic pieces.

It didn't have a battery so I bought one of the internet for $5.

Powered it on...red light.

I tried JL_Cmder but when it goes to the command prompt window it says "Connecting to Device" for a few seconds then goes back to the main menu.

Tried AppLoader but that doesn't recognize it as being plugged in to my laptop anywhere.

Probably has a bad board or some other type of hardware failure.  This is why it was in the trash.  Smiley Wink
