If you open your Newt and you find a diode with a label D2 next to it on the
logic board close to the power plug and this diode looks somehow
burned/black/dark brown, it is time to exchange it.
I herewith quote a mail from Mr. PCBMan:
The part was originally made by General Instruments KNP76GI.
Vishay Semiconductor bought them. The part crosses to TPSMB10.
Look under TVS & ESD.
If you register you can get samples...
