There is a reset button on the NXTBrick.  

If you hold the brick so you can read it - facing you - then turn it
around - there are six holes across the top (and bottom).  In the top
left hole is a hard reset.  Get a paperclip or long screw driver and
hard set the brick.  Then connect it to a computer and reload the
firmware.   (Make sure you have new batteries while you do this).

Check if it is not on SAMBA MODE.
When turned on, nothing goes on, but you can hear a faint tic sound. If
so, you need to plug it to the Nxt console and update the firmware.
Currently I think it is 1.3.

Help!
Our NXT brick won't turn on!  We tried pressing the reset button under
the USB port, but it still won't turn on.
Any suggestions?
Thanks,

Can the robot climb the center platform using ramp or steps?


Thanks,
Nag

I believe the robot can only be touching the center platform to get
points
it says,"
— Robot touching tilted center platform only: 45
— OR —
— Robot touching balanced center platform only: 65
For either case:
The center platform must not be touching anything but the mat and the
robot.
The center platform must remain between the stairs and the ramp."

Hello all,
My team has a question on the transitions mission. The rule says " the
robot gets onto the center platform". Does this mean the robot has to be
completely off the ramp and/or stairs and only on the center platform to
get the 65 points or as long as some part of robot is on the center
platform, they get the points.

And what if robot is carrying an attachment, does that also have to be
completely on the center platform? We also have seen at times that the
robot does get to the platform but either its back wheel or another
small part is in the gap between the platform and the ramp, so how will
this be judged?

Thanks
