Chosen Solution

Something on PPVRTC_G3H line is being shorted to ground, likely a capacitor on that line if you have replaced the chip. You can check this by checking continuity on U1900.

Check C1910 and any other capacitors on the way to the CPU (in schematic document, ctrl+F "PPVRTC_G3H", to see any capacitors on this circuit). Try removing the capacitors on the line, see if a short is still there, and if not, it was one of the caps.

If this doesn't work, remove u1900 and check for a short on pin for PPVRTC_G3H. If there is still a short, it will be the CPU.
