My guess would be that the resistor should be feeding the base, not the collector, so the coil connections are somewhat different from that - it may not be obvious which of the four wires is connected to which other. Only a meter can tell you that.
And I'm still not sure what the diode's doing, that way round.
Oh, how I wish teleportation worked.
I'd teleport it over to my desk, meter it out myself, then teleport it back, complete with a diagram.
Save everyone a lot of time.
Same goes for many of the problems posted here, as with many problems in life - trying to guide my aged MiL through her problems over the phone wastes so many hours; just showing her would be so much easier.
