Ah OK.

In that case, Q4 and/or the sub-circuit around Q4 are definitely suspect, because you have 6V on the Gate of Q7, which means it's going to conduct as soon as a MOSFET is installed.

No problems.

Just to be clear, we are looking for the voltages across these caps (but if you want to take out and check the caps with a cap meter in addition to measuring the voltages, that would be fine too.) An unbalance in the P15V and N15V voltage rails could also be the reason why there is a voltage on the Gate of Q7.
