That was interesting. I re-installed the original Lego firmware,
went into the NXT-G environment, opened the NXT window
and changed the device name from NXT to bobo. Re-flashed
with lejos---same issue.
Tried it again, but I turned the device off and on after setting
the name. When the brick powered back on (again, with
just the lego software), the name was back to NXT. So, the
brick is not keeping the name set through a power cycle.
I also went into the menus on the brick and attempted to
turn bluetooth on. Once, it failed after about 10 seconds;
the second time I tried it just sat on the screen for several
minutes with no fail and no success.
So, it seems like your thought of the brick having an issue unrelated
to Lejos is correct
. I've lost two bricks to LCD screen
failures (ok, three but with one the resoldering howto online
brought it back to life) and now this brick is unusable
with Lejos (although it looks like I will be able to use
it with basic NXT-G sans Bluetooth).
Thanks for the help. If anything else occurs to me
I'll post again.
