I built a DIY nixie clock from a kit several years ago. It worked then and has been working ever since until up until a few days ago when I was cleaning it. The wire going from the adapter to the pcb broke off and must have touched something it shouldn't have. Now the tubes don't light up. I tested power levels and all the IC's are getting 5V and the TP1 is getting 212 VDC. However, all three pins on the J3 connector are not getting any power. I don't know enough about electronics other than the basics and can't read the schematics very well to decipher where the problem might be. Can someone suggest what component might be causing the problem from the attached schematic?
