Try removing all power including battery.
Remove ROM board and memory card.  Clean contacts as needed, I like a soft pencil eraser.
Carefully replace then test.
Good  luck


---- Original message -----
Tomorrow marks two months since our house fire. Like any of us would 
experience, there were many Newton devices lost and damaged (100,000 
gallons of water put on and in the house).

So tonight, one of our daughters found a couple of her message pads 
and her eMate. They seemed to be pretty dried out, although in need of 
a good cleaning. When she plugged in the eMate, it seems to power up, 
but other than the charge light turning on, the only other symptom is 
that the display backlight will flash twice, pause, and repeat.

Does anyone else have any experience with water damaged Message Pads 
or eMates?
