PS4 controller blinking red light won't charge, won't turn off

hey guys,
here I have a PS4 controller whose PCB show JDM-055, the problem is once I plug the battery into the battery connector, the red light will blink continuously and you will never shut it down before you unplug the battery. fortunately, when I press the PS button, the controller will turn on normally and all the buttons are working fine, I could connect it to my PC with Bluetooth even though it is blinking red light and white light meanwhile, but it won’t charge no matter use the old and new charge port with new flex cable, I’ve followed the instruction on google and the problem is still there. what I’ve down below:

  1. change the charge port with a new one.
  2. change the flex cable with a new one.
  3. replace a new battery.
  4. reset the controller with a pin in the back hole for ten and more seconds. once I release the pin the red light back to me.
    if you suffered this before and resolved it, please let me know, thanks.

I change the charge usb cable with new one aslo, but nothing changed.
