Newton Messagepad 2000 fails to keep time

Recommended Posts

I have had this newton for a while, but I could never quite get it to work to my satisfaction. It refuses to remember the current date and time! If you enter it, and close out of the clock app, it forgets right away and sets it to something random. (Usually in the year 1995 or 1977.)


I cant figure this out, it has fresh batteries so that cant be the problem. Unless there is a hidden clock battery within the Newton itself, which I am highly suspicious of.


Also, an unrelated question: Whenever I download any newton apps from the newton archive, the sync software refuses to see it even though they are indeed newton applications.
