Default Bricked Nexus 4

Hi guys,

I recently replaced the LCD and digitizer of my Nexus 4. After I booted it up, the new screen worked fine and it booted upto the paranoid android boot animation and was stuck there. I left it unattended for some time and when I came back the screen was black. Now when I connect it to my PC, I don't even here the USB detection sound.

Have I bricked my phone permanently? Or is there any fix to this?

Thanks in advance.

Check if the recovery is working. Make sure N4 is turned off, and then press vol+, vol-, and power button together. If the menu turns on, you can get to recovery and flash new ROM. At least I would try doing that.
Device:Nexus 4
ROM: Latest Purity 4.4.2
Kernel: HellsDoctor R2 V22
