Is it bricked? (Hero3 Blk)

Hi, I got a non-responsive hero3 black edition,

 

The buttons doesn't do a thing, when I plug the usb the rear red led lights up very briefly. (with and without battery)

If I press down shutter button while plugging the usb cable rear red led lights up permenantly. (with and without battery)

And front screen shows nothing all that time.

Is it bricked, is there anything I can do?
