I had 5.21V on one side of R600, and 0.805V on the over. Shorting the Base to ground worked, but when I did it through my multimeter continuity setting it flickered quietly, and when I used a straight wire as well as a 1K resistor, the transformer squealed like a pig.

Also when I measure the resistance of the base on Q601, I get an open loop regardless of monitor state.

Is it safe to assume Q601 is a culprit? Or is it R600?
