After watching everyone's suggestions, I may be able to help, but I need to know if you are in the United States?

I am an Electronics Assembly Engineer and an Apple Service Technician for over 30 years. I have a few Newtons I bought years ago. My thought was if you ARE in the USA, I could have you mail it to me and I can see what is causing you problem. I LOVE to problem solve!!

You can contact me at my phone # or email address below.
