Macintosh plus no video shorted near q3

Recommended Posts

Hi I have owned this macintosh plus for over a year now and have gotten very close to fixing it but now I have a problem. My mac has no picture and has a quiet humming from LF1 I think due to me putting a higher capasitance for replacing the rifa caps. What really changes is the short between Q3 and C2 both were replaced but still get hot. No the flyback doesn't get hot and no its not cold solder joints or cable I check the continuity and reflowed it all. When turned on heat flows out of the grounding trace between the two. Idk whats up with it here is a pic. Maximum amount of degrees is about 230 Fahrenheit. I think CR5 is shorted.
