Hi Dave,

plug in your circuit at the trainer port.
Don't switch on the TX, leave it powered off.
Setup your voltmeter to measure resistance. Use the lowest range (e.g.200 Ohm).

Measure the resistance

from pin2 at the port to pin 16 of the IC

from the solderpoint at the port, that corresponds to ground or -5Volt (black wire) to pin 15 of the IC

Both readings should be nearly 0 Ohm.

If one measure shows a higher value, that is probably your problem.
