Off the top of my head:

AO-51 - Battery failure (Problem fixed in Fox series - shorted
batteries will be cut loose from the circuit and the satellite will
operate when in the sun)
AO-27 - Likely radiation damaged memory (Problem fixed in Fox series -
IHU failure will cause it to become a dumb FM repeater)
HO-68 - Failed relay (Problem fixed in Fox series I think - no relays)
