This is an Assy no. 250469 Rev. A short board. The machine would boot normally and then within 30 seconds the screen would look like the one below with a ready message and no blinking cursor.
When I touched the different chips on the board, I noticed that the SID chip (MOS 8580R5) got extremely hot. When replaced with a working SID, the machine was brought back to normal operation and the temperature of the replaced SID was normal.
