If there are any 7448s or 7447s in the display I would be checking them
A number of our early video games use those PROMs and I have not had any
failures. You can subsitute an Eprom if you are willing to glomp up
interface wiring between the two. Certainly you could read the PROMs
and reconstruct the missing data if you were so inclined.
I should be able to burn a replacement if you can't find anyone else and
can get a blank 82S115 as my Andromeda PROM reader claims it can handle
