I have done all the resistance checks and everything is fine. I will try to replace the 2 zeners and see.

There must be something in the small amount of components and printed circuit that is causing this.
Take out the AVR.
Get a resistance meter.
Look carefully at the schematic and measure the resistance between every point you can see that is between the socket and
USB/power/ground. These schematic should give you an idea of what you should see.
Look for short circuits, or maybe no circuit.
Maybe there is a whisker of PCB material left there, or even a break.
Just possibly the zeners may be faulty.
Ask if you are not sure.
