If the PD is the suspect, just pull it from the table and bring it to the PD testing setup.
The transimpedance of the PD should be ~2000 Ohm for both of the RF and DC outputs.
The test setup gives you the systematic opportunity for examination of the signal line.
Check the signal level with the active probe.
Once the broken component is found replace it. You are supposed to have the replacement
components on the blue tower.
