My advice: with it always detecting the usb present coupled with a
recent disassembly/reassembly, I would advise opening up the patient
again and look for shorts and/or pinched wires.
I would try disassembling the unit again and see if it will power up
properly on the bench with it disassembled (if possible - it may take
three hands, but usually it is possible). Odds are pretty good that it
will be OK when open on the bench. If so, odds are pretty good that it
can be reassembled and work again.
