Probably - but I guess I’m an optimist.  If it were mine, I’d manually reapply the firmware & re-format to confirm failure before condemning it - you never know!

It certainly can’t hurt. At the worst all you’ve done is waste a few minutes time if those things don’t help. But from the description, it sounds like a hardware issue.
