Post NXT Completely busted .. (may be) (not booting)
Help!!!! It's really strange. When I was trying to update my NXT to latest FW from RobotC 2.25, the NXT screen went blank (it is normal), but it never completed., NXT did not come up again. After that, I did various things, NXT is not powering on, or not booting. However, I do hear tiny clickings when battery connected. I tried hard reset (hidden button in the hold below USB port).., but no luck.
Me not thinking hard :( , I tried on another NXT, same thing happened. So, any help is really appreciated.., I bet I am not new on this.

Just reflash it, it should be fine.

Right now, It does not turn-on at all.., just making clicks. Is there instructions on reflash? Do I use RobotC or some other tool?? Never done this.

Connect the brick with a USB cable to your computer. Then in the top menu, go to Robot->Download firmware and follow the instructions there.
