I'm currently restoring a KNS computer-in-a-keyboard which isn't working. The form factor is gorgous and reminiscent of the Amiga 1200 and I plan to make it my main retro battlestation.
Cosmetically it's in a so-so shape but the electonic inside it's ok, no sign of oxydation but it isn't booting at all. It doesn't have any 5V on the power connector (only -12v (-11.90V actually),+12V and -5V) but myabe it's the PWR_GOOD signal waiting for the motherboard to boot to activate? The wire colors aren't matching those of a standard AT power supply though.
I recapped the power supply to no avail, I also changed the dead BIOS battery, but it still wouldn't boot. I'm stuck for now I have to admit, would you know what I could test now?
Here's some pictures (WARNING: some pictures are big)

PS: the motherboard is a KAIMEI INS-486SLC-1, if someone has some documentation on it and/or the computer I'm all ears! Archive.org doesn't get me far on the now dead jamicon/kamei website. I also asked the new Jamicon company (which now makes only capacitors) about some info on it but I've got no answers so far...
