NXT Intelligent Brick - any help for failed display?
I picked up another Mindstorms set recently and the display on the #9841
NXT Intelligent Brick is not working. I believe it is just the display that has quit, as it still sings its little song on startup and makes sounds when I press the buttons. I just want to get Bluetooth turned on so I can control it using the phone app.
I've watched several YouTube videos that suggest pulling it apart and either replacing capacitors or re-seating a ribbon cable. Before I go tearing this thing apart, has anyone else on the forum run into this and successfully repaired it? If so, what method worked for you?
