HE102 flashing power light

I have recently purchased a Netgear HE102 802.11a WAP. I first got it
and fired it up and went to reset to factory defaults via the reset
button. When it came back, the power light stayed on for about 15
seconds and then started blinking.

I spent about an hour trying to reset back to factory defaults again
and I also spent about 30 minutes with phone support trying to figure
it out. Support had  no idea and told me to return it for a new one.
According to the manual, flashing power light means that the self-test
has failed.

I tried hooking up my laptop to the console port on the back but
didn't see anything. It's also not really possible for me to easily
return this so I'm hoping there is something I can do or try to bring
this back to life again. Any help is appreciated, thanks.

er, unless you happen to have the skills, parts and tools onhand I think
you're kinda screwed.

"It's also not really possible for me to easily  return this"

It was easy enough to buy it right?
Just take it back to the place of purchase.

Best
