Default [Q] Is my phone bricked or is it a simple battery issue?

Ok so yesterday I had my nexus 4 in the charger at 46 percent and i was about to send a tweet when the screen froze. thinking it was a simple crash i pressed the home button and no visual response then it powered off. now whenever i try to power it on nothing happens. i tried pressing the power and volume buttons. whenever i try to turn it on and i plug it in the red light flashes. sometimes it flashes continiously sometimes it is a solid color. so what can i do it wont communicate with the computer. im not sure what the issue is. is it a battery issue or is it impossibly bricked. i already charged it overnight to no avail.
oh and im running stock cm11 with the stock cm kernel. i just installed it the night before.
im planning on just openning it and unplugging and plugging the battery back in. will this work?

Try power button + volume down for 10 seconds and than plug in the power cable. You somehow must try to boot into bootloader.

How many times did you try that? It may don't work in the first time.
But if you can screw off you phone, that I would suggest to look after the batterie

It is hard to say, because there are so many reason why your device doesn't boot only left the red LED flashing. One reason could be your batterie which is bricked. Another reason could be a thermal shutdown cause by overheat. And of course there are those little, little software issues that only appear once in five years...

just my luck. but the battery was 46 percent and it wasnt that hot. i hope its not bricked because the computer refuses to detect it
