I recently dropped my phone into the toilet water.... i quickly removed it and i volume down and power to force it off.. after 2 days i checked the phone again.. it didnt on but i plug the charger.. there was a red led only.. i tried many unbrick methods but i dont think my phone is bricked. I opened up the insides of the phone and all the water has gone and theres no water stuck or anything.. dry
but my nexus 4 is still on red led when plugged in.. I think its battery problem?

I think it's not messed up completely. You should take it to service center ASAP instead of guessing what happened to it.

I think they'll check it for you, so don't worry.

You probably just need a new battery. Everything else should be working fine. Best thing to do is take everything apart and clean them with isopropyl alcohol, then let them dry, buy a new battery and you ll have a working phone again. Sometimes some other components might have problems, like camera or mic/speakers, which are all cheap as spare parts. Plenty of videos on YouTube on how to fix water damage.

Its usually just the battery dying. I dropped my HTC desire in the toilet once, just the battery had to be replaced after drying it all.

You tried to run the phone on a different charger? For me, the incompetent OC it helped.
