You could use a LED with a 330R inline resistor. Connect the positive side of the LED to pin 16 and the other side to ground (the resistor can be on either side). Be careful not to short anything when doing that. You can do the same test as before. If the LED flashes then the CPU is correct and you will need to check R24 and Q2. Also, check the solder on pin 16 and on R24.
