I don't know if this will help but read here,


I read about this problem on other forums.
Apparently what happens is the BIOS flash starts ,but the unit doesn'yt look like it doing anything other then flashing the lights, so people turn them off before the flash is complete.
According to the other forums once the flash is started the unit needs to just sit until it restarts on it's own , which apparently , can take awhile.

Since this is a know issue ,if neccessary it is covered under the warranty.
