Default Bricked TF300T - Stock never rooted, just died

As the title says I've got a TF300 (actually it's my Mother's) and the thing just died on her this week. I took a look at it and hooked it up to my PC, got nothing. Ordered a new USB cable and now it's telling me there is an APX device plugged in. Did some research and it looks like I would need to have already backed up blobs using NVFlash for the APX mode to be useful.

Anyone have any advice as to what to do from here? Never done anything with a Tegra device so some of the utilities are foreign to me and I don't want to further ruin my chances at reviving it.

Thanks for any help

Vol UP should go to APX mode while booting. Vol Down should either fail or go to fastboot mode while booting.
