If a 2x00 tells you that the battery was dead, it is usually right. It might have been "dead" due to
a contact problem. Check and clean the battery contacts, and check the + and - contacts in the
Newton. The battery's + contact is the one next to the sticker, - is the round one. Especially the
Newton's + contact bends towards the mainboard over time. This might cause what you are

Another reason might be a contact problem inside the battery pack.
