 Thanks, guys. I left it in the depressed position for about 3 hrs. and and
Voila ! I looked over and was gratified to see the Next logo on the screen.
 There was some clouding in the center of the screen which gradually
cleared up. I guess something (an aged cap ?) is starting to go or else
a weak solder point that reconnects under heat.
 Boy that display sure makes winblows (not to mention Mac or Amiga for
that matter) look like crap.
