As a part time Model M keyboard enthusiast and proud owner of a Model M 
and M2, this is my kind of content!

 From the photo of the keyboard PCB 
there are two electrolytic capacitors on the board.  My IBM model M2, 
circa 1993, needed its electrolytic capacitor replaced around 2013 or 
so.  If anyone has a Newton keyboard giving them grief or that has 
stopped working, I'd wager that those caps need replacing.
