I was trying to update the firmware on my NXT but suddenly the screen went blank and it started beeping. I unplugged and re-plugged my USB and a notification came up saying that the device malfunctioned. I tried holding down the orange button but that didn't work so then I held down the off button (gray button) but that didn't work either. What should I do?

    Btw, did the beeping sound like computer mouse clicks? If so, then this means that the firmware has been broken in some way. Here's another troubleshooting idea: bricks.stackexchange.com/a/8076/15028 Commented May 20, 2020 at 19:12

  • Click the link in my second comment for instructions on fixing the problem. If it doesn't help, let us know. Clicking NXT bricks are actually quite common. Commented May 21, 2020 at 23:52
