The Newton 2x00 works fine with only the ac adapter or only the battery
connected. What you describe sounds like

a) a dead power adapter or
b) A defect on the 2x00's mainboard.

Can you test the power adapter with a voltmeter or with
another Newton? Also, please excuse the question, are you sure the ac
outlet is working?

I have some 2100 mainboards I could be talked into parting with.
Let me know if you can't get it fixed and you are interested.
