My Asteroids Deluxe lost sound (apart from thrust and explosions). Also asteroids were all stacked on top of one another and always started from the same place.

Game operated normally apart from that - collisions , movement , ufos, satellites, score & lives etc all operating as normal.

Fix was to replace the POKEY chip (C012294B-01)

I got mine from a BallBlazer cartridge for the Atari 7800.
