Hey, Larry, Brendan again...
Yep, that's the culprit. Block cursor in lower cursor in what usually
appears to be a graphics mode means dead battery. I can't remember
where I read this.
Anyway, if you're in a part of the world where it's easy to get a
replacement battery, it's worth a try. (It cured my machine with
the same problem.)
Say, you get your floppy covers yet?
