Model: Galaga
Symptom: Freezes, randomly coins up by itself.

Board has had repair attempts before. All the 2147 RAMs were pulled and 2x 2148 RAMs installed by another tech.

Replaced all the 24, 28, 40, and 42 pin sockets. Replaced all the old style resistor packs. Found a 2.2K pack that had a broken pin causing the freezes and a 5 pin 1K pack with 2 broken pins causing color issues that the previous tech replaced the RAM for. Recapped the board. Repaired bad pin on the 52xx causing the coinup issues. Repaired a bad pin on the 04XX chip. Tested.

Model: Galaga
Symptom: Freezes and resets on its own

Board had been worked on in the past by another tech.

Replaced the 24, 28, and 40 pin sockets on the CPU board. The resistor packs were of the proper type and the remaining sockets were machine pin and did not need replacing. Found all of the 24 pin sockets on the EPROMs were incorrectly installed, standing off the board about 1/16", and two of them had pins that had broken off under the socket causing the bad behavior. Tested board.
