Marking on U2 is completely not readable.

*** Just to be clear: Pin1 is on the left and Pin3 is on the right of the picture I attached.
As shown in your picture: Pin 1 (Right pin) of U2 is connected to C7, Pin 3 (Left pin) is connected to C6.

I do not understand why your readings show Voltages. Are you checking the resistance of C6 and C7 with POWER applied to the unit while doing resistance test?
