[FIXED!] ERROR: Power surge on the USB port

EDIT: Problem fixed!
The problem was pointed out to me:

Juraj:
the connector shield contacts touch the Ethernet connector. put isolation tape on top of the Ethernet connector

You can see from the images below the problem pointed out by @Juraj:

I added some electrical tape to the top of the Ethernet jack, and now everything works!


Original Post:
I want to log accelerometer readings from a Tinkerkit Sensor Shield accelerometer to a SD card using an Ethernet shield. The problem though is when connecting an Arduino Uno + Ethernet Shield+Tinkerkit Sensor Shield to the USB port of my computer, I get an error saying: Power surge on the USB port. You can see the full error message in the attachments. I’ve also attached the Arduino and shields I’m using in case that helps. Is there a solution to my woes?

Does the problem still occur if you plug only the Uno into your computer?

What about with only the Uno + Ethernet Shield?

What about with only the Uno + Tinkerkit Sensor Shield?

the connector shield contacts touch the Ethernet connector. put isolation tape on top of the Ethernet connector

The Arduino and shields power fine with the following configurations:
only the Uno + Tinkerkit Sensor Shield connected to PC via USB
only the Uno + Ethernet Shield connected to PC via USB

The Arduino does not work with the following conifgurations:
Uno + Ethernet Shield + Tinkerkit Sensor Shield connected to PC via USB. This results in the USB power surge error

So you are talking about this:

So you are talking about this:

Yes. Try lifting the TinkerKit shield up just a little bit so those pins aren't touching the shield of the Ethernet jack.
