Before you try the "over night trick" from Nicolas, just remove the
battries for some seconds. Put them back in and don't touch the power
button. Wait 30s and hope that he restarts. I often had the problem
that I have tried to use the powerbutton whenI have put the tray in
the Newton. if it fails back to Nicolas.
