I did finally succeed in doing a hard reset, so it should be completely
erased now, right?

No, it is definitely changing the contrast. I can barely read the text,
even though it's on a "white" background. It's almost impossible to
read compared to doing the same thing on my 2000. Only on the hard
reset confirmation screen though!

I have noticed every once in a while it thinks I tapped a little bit
away from where I actually did, and SOMETIMES I get gaps or tiny jags in
my lines. Whenever I try to MAKE it happen though, it works fine, of
course. I wonder if I do have an early case of jaggies.

I'd hate to have to open up this beautiful new looking Newton and poke
around with the ribbon cables... I guess since I've only had this unit a
couple hours, I'll wait and see how troublesome it really is before I
get my screwdriver out..
