I finally got some time today to take a crack at repairing an Astrocade that belonged to my step dad.  I was hoping to get some more historical data on the unit.  I think he bought it in the late 70's.

It has a sticker on the board with HV-A25782_.  Is that the serial number?

The PCB silk screen includes the number MM T1 A084-90701-B620 A080-90701-B620 and is labelled MIDWAY MFG. CO. A BALLY COMPANY.

The date codes on the IC's are between 1977 and 1978.

Here's a pic:

I just noticed there's a sticker underneath with the serial number.  I'm guessing 4255 is an early model.
