The procedure differs slightly depending on whether you bought your brick
from the LEGO company (e.g., a LEGO retail store or lego.com) or from LEGO
If you have a LEGO Education brick, you follow the instructions below. You
ship it to them and they ship you a new one very quickly (the whole
turnaround takes a week or so).
If you bought a retail brick, you still call the number below! It turns out
that LEGO Education handles the retail replacement for the retail arm, but
the procedures are different. They send you a prepaid mailer and go ahead
and ship you a new brick - from Denmark. Yes, it takes a couple of weeks to
get the new brick but you can hold on to the old one until it comes in and
then you can send the old one to them in the mailer provided.
So LEGO Education is faster but you pay outgoing postage and have no brick
for a week or so, while with LEGO retail you pay no postage, you get to keep
your (potentially partially functioning) brick while waiting, but you have
to wait longer.

I had this problem last week and Nick Swayne gave me some excellent advice.
LEGO will replace your faulty NXT at no cost because the display issue is a
known problem. You may have a problem b/c you attempted to repair the unit
but you can always ask. Below is the number I telephoned. The
representative told me to write a brief note explaining that the display was
intermittent and include my return shipping address. He gave me the address
below to ship my NXT. I asked if any kind of RMA (return merchandize
authorization) number was required and he said no--just include the note
about the display and the problems I've encountered.
