Did it sync at one point? Is it set to positive sync?

If you're trying to use negative-going composite sync, as most games do, I'd
say the problem is a bad 7407 TTL chip located at A9. I've run into that
before.

But if you're using positive-going vertical sync and horizontal sync, those
are provided on the board, too. Those come from a 7407 at location A/B10.

That should take care of your problem.
