Any chance this could be upgraded to a payphone style keypad to match the arcade toughness?

Though, correct me if I am incorrect, only if one is using the RF modulator instead of composite. Is anyone still doing that?

I'd think it might help, as you'd be bypassing anything in the console that uses anything other than 5V? I guess it is a matter of how much you want to spend, though Console 5's five-volt mod kit is under $15.
 
At that point, an iPad charger could act as your PSU, offering more current than the old brick.

Fair enough, just seems like a very convoluted solution to a 3 solder point problem.

Suggest doing a 5V only mod, possibly cheaper than resurrecting the beast.

That won't help with a 12v-6v voltage drop under load. Nothing wrong with the console, it's the 12v regulator in the PSU.

Did you figure out the problem? I have the exact same problem on 2 different systems- this is the only reference I can find online
 

Bad 12v regulator
