Power rails on 0359 appear shorted

I recently bought the cn0359 conductivity board. When I plug it in the processor, screen and button works but I kept getting sensor errors. (it has never worked) I finally touched the power supply and found a component was super hot. After I put a meter on the plus and minus 15v I saw that they were basically shorted - or at least one of them appears to be shorted pulling both down.

 

I gave a visual inspection to see if it was an obvious solder short but it all looks good. Anyone else having this problem? I don't really have time for this sort of thing - the whole point in buying it was to save time - very frustrating. so to recap. the 3.3v works but the 15rails are shorted somehow.

 

Any help with obvious places to look would be appreciated...
