If you have other Nixie tube products , then you should first proof-test all the tubes.

It’s not clear from the photo, but some look a little sick.

As for voltage, initial strike voltage would be in the order of 170-180v, but normal sustain voltage could well be ~140v

You mention smd components , if this includes caps then these could well be your culprits based on the age.

I repair Electronics for a living so let me know if I can be of any help.
