Default [Q] Bricked Nexus 4

Yes I have researched every thread regarding my phone ( I an unable to find a definitive answer ).

My Nexus 4 was running the android 5 port with TWRP recovery, I got a little fed up with
the constant 4.4.2 update downloading and asking to be installed and decided to try
Liquid Smooth rom .. Big mistake. ( Battery was at 77% at the time )

Entered recovery - wiped data etc. ( As usual ) installed the rom and then rebooted.
I was greeted with a black screen.

I have spent a week trying overnight charges / Vol down and power button / power button / 15sec - 60 sec .. plug in usb hold buttons down ( Tried 4 chargers )
etc etc etc ...

Even tried the jump start battery trick ( Noticed the battery wasn't even getting warm ) .

If I do the button thing then plug in the charger the LED ( Red flashes for about one minute after letting go of said buttons, then turns off ).

I have ordered another battery but doubt this going to resolve my issue .. Can someone confirm this ?

Regards
And thanks in advance.

1St solution:
hold both volume buttons and power button for 30sec
then plug into wall charger and leave there for about and hours or three.
(the screen can be off, but its charging)
2Ndif 1st dosent work)
1. Unplug phone charger
2. Press and hold the volume UP button plus power button for 60 seconds.
3. Release buttons.
4. Plug into charger
