It might be a lost cause. You have definitely blown something out somewhere. Have you looked for a service manual yet? Check with Analog Alley - the owner of that website is a member here: Superduper.
Or, he might chime in here with some advice where to check.

You aren't getting results either because you haven't swapped the right parts or that there is damage to the PCB independent of the components. Additionally, you are swapping one part at a time and putting back afterwards. How do you know that there aren't a combination of bad components?
Try swapping Q402/Q403 together as a pair. The Logic control IC might need swapping (IC401) but I do not recommend that you do this yourself without proper equipment since they are easily damaged without proper desoldering equipment and I suspect that these are very much NLA which might indeed render this (and your parts source as well) a lost cause if you damage them. Try those 2 transistors first.
