Patrick, Find most answers on http://forums.usfirst.org/forumdisplay.php?f=24 Your NXT display issue may be with one of the three capacitors (surface mounted v/s soldered) coming out loose (cause age, drop, bump, vibration, heat, etc) from the daughter board. Since you have shipped all three for repair you may not have time to do it yourself, but just in case if anyone runs in same issue watch the following self-repair video at slow pace. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eCZNc7tPop0 I am sure any FRC team in your area can help with simple repair. Cheers!

All three of our NXTs died this year. I have contacted Lego Education and the Tech support people confirmed they all have a dead LCD display. I have sent all three off to be repaired at no charge. However, the turn over time is 3 - 4 weeks. If any team has an extra NXT that we can barrow for the season it would be greatly appreciated by my kids. I reside in the West Point area and teach in Middlesex. I will travel to pick-up if one is available. Hopefully Richmond or Tidewater.
