Was having issues with magna save blowing fuse on fliptronic board. After some diagnostic
I purchased new fliptronic board and new magnet.
Turn on game and magnet stays locked on once interlock is engaged. Fuse not blowing and magnet does work.
Any idea what is happening?

I would bet that you have either a blown TIP102 transistor and/or the associated pre-driver transistor. You need to break out your multi meter and check both of them.

check the wiring to it? Make sure not stripped anywhere touching metal?

Check ribbons as well.

Ok update. Tip transistor was not working (on new board) replaced and magnet worked once then fuse blew. What do I check next?

Anytime I've run into this issue, the TIP was blown, the pre driver was blown and the attached item to circuit was also blown. I don't know how to check a magnet. Did you replace the pre driver?
