    Exclamation Recovery Mode doesn't work?

    I have been attempting to fix my mom`s LG Nexus 4. It decided to brick up on her (just died a week ago)

    - Possible water damage, if water can leak into the phone while lying on it's back through the speaker besides the LG logo. Has not been dropped.
    - Possible melted chocolate may have seeped into phone through the speaker on the back as well. (Unknown if water/chocolate actually got into the internal bits or not)
    - Recovery mode does not seem work
    - Safe mode is the only way to boot up the phone

    When I get the phone into recovery mode this is what shows on the screen:

    fastboot mode
    Product_Name - mako
    HW version - rev_11
    Bootloader verison - MakoZ30d
    Baseband version - m9615A - CEFWMAZM-2.0.1700.98
    Carrier Info - None
    Serial Number - 0500d84added26d06
    Signing - production
    Secure Boot - Enabled
    Lock State - Locked

    The four options at the top of the screen: Start, Reset bootloader, Recovery mode, Power off > these just continulously blink and flash so you can not select an option.

    I have managed to get the picture android lying on it's back with the no command symbol but I can't do anything from there, I spent 5 minutes holding the button. I did attempt a factory reset in Safe mode but that only wiped the contents.

    Did you try the next step after Andy on his back with the red exclamation point (no command)?

    While holding down the*Power*button, press the*Volume Up*button.
    Use the volume buttons to scroll to "wipe data/factory reset" and press the*Power*button to select it.

    You can find tear down videos on YouTube which will help you to find out if gunk is inside--if reset doesn't work.

    Going by the phone's reaction I think it may be internal issues, possibly gunk or something, as the volume buttons do not want to work, though the menu still flashes crazy busy. Thanks for your help
