I had similar symptoms on two Newtons but only on the right half of the
screen, but tested only in portrait mode. I could repair both units by
cleaning the 4 tracks of the flexible PCB between screen digitizer and mobo.
This could help to solve your problem too.

I would be willing to do the cleaning for you. It involves nearly complete
disassembling of the Newton but it doesn't take more than 15min.
