Model: Galaga
Symptom: Dead

Board had attempted repair damage on the ROMs on row 3 on the CPU board.

Replaced all the 24, 28, 40, and 42 pin sockets on the board. The sockets had been replaced once before, but with defective single wipe sockets and 8 damaged/patched traces. Several of the old sockets had fractured pins that were making intermittent contact with the board. Re-jumpered 7 damaged traces as two of the existing patches under the ROM sockets were intermittent.

Cleaned the custom chips and repaired a pin on each of the 06xx, 54xx, and the 00xx chips. Tested.
