Oops! Thanks online conversion tool. (The Newton was out of commission,
so I couldn't use it...) Thanks for the tips.

It was indeed the positive terminal. Bent it back and everything is
kosher. Except now I have no sound, and no amount of tinkering
(reseating the speaker, etc.) has brought it back. Which is unfortunate,
since one of the most useful aspects of the Newt is as an alarm clock
when I travel. Perhaps I need to invest in some spare parts machines one
of these days...
