NXT 2.0 Error code: -142016

The Bluetooth does connect. I am not having these issues with any of my other Bluetooth devices running off of the same dongle.

Where do I find the meaning of any other error codes that I may encounter for the NXT?

    Are you running Win7 64bits?

  • Or just Windows 7 - there are some compatibility issues with some of the software and Windows 7. Feb 8, 2012 at 9:21
  • You say that you are using a Bluetooth dongle. The problem might be with the dongle itself; I would recommend that you borrow a friend's and see if that works.

LEGO's Bluetooth support page has a limited amount of support for Bluetooth errors. It mentions further Bluetooth support can be found in the user guide on:

  • Pages 36-45 for NXT 2.0
  • Pages 28-37 for NXT 1.0

Where can I find instruction booklets?

You may also get in contact with LEGO's customer support.


Your NXT may need to be reset, then the Bluetooth may work. I've found with other devices that sometimes helps. Or maybe you'll need a new NXT. Sadly they are very expensive.

    For such a small problem you shouldn't just buy another NXT, especially if it's the PC or Bluetooth dongle that is causing an error.
