Have you checked charger port if it's loose? Sometimes you may need to tighten the screws up for the charger port.

Red screen can also mean the tristar (U2 charging) chip being bad or NAND chip failure.

Might need to do a restore but that will wipe data so if data is needed leave restore for last resort.
