Can you provide more info on what you have done so far and exactly what is not working. Also, please post a photo of your setup.

Thanks for the photos. The boards looks generally OK. So does the soldering. The part you circled in the power supply. So it's acting like something is shorted out somewhere. I'm not seeing any in your photo, but can you look closely at all your solder points and visually check for any possible shorts. Like little solder hairs or anything else that might be shorting out some pins.

Let's just replace it. Send an email to support@adafruit.com with a link to this thread and your order number and they can send you a replacement MP3 Shield.
