Won't know until you try. My MP120 with NOS v2.O was acting up a couple weeks ago, first time I've used it in 2009. I'm going to guess that, yes... it's highly likely that all 2.x version Newtons are affected in some way.

Hope so...

When I get some free time this weekend, I'm going to try a few things. Guess I should pull out my MP130 and check it out too.
