I can't get ahold of Jim through email and his voicemail isn't set up, so I'm hoping one of you is familiar with his 3-in-1 board, FLP023, or maybe that he'll read this question here. Coil A's fuse keeps blowing, and the right flipper on my Jurassic Park is locked up. I'm fairly certain that Q7 is bad and that I'll need to order another one. My question is what else might need to be replaced on the board if Q7 has gone bad... anyone have any thoughts on this?

Thanks!

check your manual to see if there is a diode across the coil lugs. Usually when having that issue, replace both at the same time. If only one is bad and replaced it can blow the other....then the never ending cycle continues

I had the same problem with this board, and as far as I could tell it was a design/manufacturing error inherent to the board itself. I saved myself the headache and bought a NOS DE flipper board for like $75. Worked like a charm while the RottenDog rots on the shelf.

Good to know. I already repaired the original board, so I'll probably just leave that in then. Odd that there wouldn't be any support for the board. Bummer. Thanks for the response!
