Fixing An Old Asteroids Game

Besides loosing the transmission, a friend's Asteroids game went out.

Its a real oldie - from about 1979.

So... we pulled it apart.

Here's the main logic PCB board. Pretty cool.

We didn't see any solder joint problems, and all the connectors looked good.

Looks like a screen/monitor problem. Only half of the screen is working.

Time to call in a professional...
