No Power when Cape attached

UPDATE: Works fine with another power adapter - go figure! I'll be getting a linear power supply anyway in a few days. Good to know the board was OK though - now for some fun!
Hi, new owner here of the Beaglebone + Kiwisdr combo.
I have tried several 5V power supplies and none seem to power the device on. If I remove the cape, the Beaglebone does power-on fine (with the micro-usb cable). What pins can I check on the kiwisdr to verify if the kiwisdr cape is bad? Voltage levels? Open/Shorts?
Note: I have read the post related to power adapters not having large enough gage wire and I believe mine does, so I that is not the issue.
I'd just like to know what is a quick voltmeter/ohmmeter check I can try before I return it / buy a new one...
