I have just send an email to you(NKC suport). Hope the picture can help.

I saw the pictures... the problem is probably below the LCD.  The tiny thin PCB that is used to attach the LCD to the board does not tolerate well the huge solder pieces that you have... i am assuming, based on the soldering of the other through hole components.  I will reply to your email with some follow-up information.  I will also include in the assembly guide page to be careful with the soldering of the LCD to the board, and check for any shorts before continuing the assembly.

I was thinking that this could happen, but before soldering the LCD on the Shield, I checked if there were any short circuit. I will re-weld to see if it resolves.

thanks

I have the same problem, looked over all my connections, even tried the shield without the LCD connected and still have issues with the arduino not showing power.
Edit: after doing some more testing, it looks like the problem happens when pin 2 of the icsp header is connected. I'm not good enough with schematics to trace that back to where my problem is, but all my connections seem to be ok.
