My phone, my beautiful phone!

My Nexus 4 stopped charging in AC mode recently and would only charge as USB (i.e. slowly). The phone was charging normally with my husband's cord (even when plugged into my wall adapter) so I figured I needed a new cord. I bought a cheap one, and it wouldn't charge in AC mode either, so I did a bit of research and found I needed a higher rated one to charge at those speeds. I would have bought a replacement original Google brand one, but they stopped selling it. Instead I bought a highly recommended Tikbro 26AWG micro cable off ebay. I plugged it in when it arrived this morning. My phone went to AC mode for about two seconds, then "not charging", for another two, then went black and won't turn on again. My wall adapter is making a buzzing sound, even after unplugging it. Am I screwed? Is my phone permanently fried? WTF?
