Till yesterday it was charging and working perfectly...but today morning when I kept it for charge...it didn't charge at all. And now trying different solutions from the internet it has drained completely.

I had ordered it from the US and its over an year old now...so out of warranty...also will the Indian LG service center get it repaired for me...also I have my personal data on it...any help ??? :(

All is but lost
you can try to move the plug inside the device or perform a power drain - it might start to work.

bought a special screw driver set to help me open up the Nexus 4.....tried for several minutes to get the back off but its really difficult to get it off....damaged the frame a bit on the corners :( ..gave up for now...requires a lot of patience...will do it on the weekends :/

take it to service center, they will repair it but will charge you some money..

Successfully opened the phone after almost one frustrating hour scared at the same time that I don't break the back glass....

But....the socket connected to the battery is also fitted with screws and I don't have that effing attachment...fml X(

I don't understand why you would even try to open it yourself. Its not a computer that we can fix our self. But anyway, good luck. I hope it does not cost you a bomb to get it fixed

Because many have faced this problem and the solution that worked for most of them was to detach the battery and attach it again...but unfortunately I don't have that screw attachment :(
