You might want to try checking the internal NiCd backup battery. It's
been a while since I've had my Starlet apart, but I do seem to remember
replacing some shorted nicads to get it working.

The Starlet is a nice little machine. Although it is CP/M based, it still
bears some resemblance to the 8201 / M100 portables. Does anyone know if
this is an NEC-designed machine, or if it is another Kyocera design that
was sold by NEC (and maybe others)?
