Post Bad brick?
I am new to using the LEGO NXT for Mindstorms using ROBOTC. Everything has been going pretty well thus far, but we do have one brick that will not power up at all. We have tried pushing the reset button located on the bottom, but that doesn't fix the problem. The only other noticeable item about the brick is that we do hear a ticking sound when we have turned it on. Any ideas?

Thanks

That ticking sound means it's in firmware update mode, hopefully. Try downloading the firmware onto it, and if that doesn't work then do this. [LINK]
