Default [Q] My nexus 5 doesn't turn on

Guys, I have a situation with my nexus 5. 3 days ago, I was chatting at whatsapp and suddenly the screen turned off. I though it was probably because the battery needed to be charged, so I plugged it and a few minutes later I saw a red led flashing and the nexus started to get really hot... I unplugged, left it like that and I replug it again, but this time neither get hot, nor get a red led, nor getting answer from the device. I tried to press volume+power but no luck at all. The only thing that worked (kinda) is that I open the cel, unplugged the battery, reconnected and with that, the nexus came back, but when I tried to plug into the computer or the electricity, again, the cel just turned off suddenly. By the way... The computer is not detecting the nexus when I plug with usb... Could any of you guys help me??

Sounds like you need to rma it. Don't think anything will bring it back to life.
