[NTLK] 2000 not switching on

Hello Rob, Forrest, Newton Friends,

This trick worked for me. I let a MP2000 sit for 24hrs before attempting to wake it up.

When removing AC power and batteries, I also unloaded my PC (PCMCIA) cards. 

When it was time to reload the batteries and plug in the power brick, I performed a deep reset by pressing down the Reset button on the back of the unit for 20 seconds or so.

What are the different ways to reset a Newton?

>> Remove all power from the unit—this includes ac and any battery power. Allow the Newton to sit this way for a minimum of several hours.
>> Reconnect/restore the power supplies (as appropriate), now try to power it up.
