Default Continually Blowing Fuses

Hi,
I have just recently put my simple se into a case. I put it together on a board to prove it some time ago, it powered up without any problems and sounded superb. Now however since installing it in a metal case I cannot get it to power up, it is continually blowing fuses.
The only difference other than the case is the fact I have installed an led taking power from the 6.3v tap. I have checked and rechecked the wiring, have any of you old hands got any ideas as to where a newbie can start looking?
Regards
