Sorry, in this case most probably something is wrong with your hardware.
I do not know the electrical circuit of the OMP, but there might be a fuse
or a shunt resistor in series to the batteries (not the backup battery),
which can be blown.
Thus your Newt will not recognise and use any power from the battery
