1. Caps lock. Please un-click it

2. what led are we talking about? The power one? 

3. did you try a factory reset? Push and hold reset for 7-15 seconds while its powered on? 

4.You can try recovering it with tftp or nmrpflash.
are you on windows? if so, follow this guide
https://kb.netgear.com/000059634/How-to-upload-firmware-to-a-NETGEAR-router-using-Windows-TFTP
just make sure you enable tftp

and here's a video walk through using a tftp client. Use the built in one for windows 10 though. the video is more of an example of how its done.

and if that doesn't work, you can try using nmrpflash
