Why was the high voltage replaced?  What were your original symptoms?  Also check condenser fan operation.

does the Compressor stay running at all ?

 

May be a bad Compressor

OR

may be just a bad Start Relay

The unit wouldn't do anything on the front panel so I changed the HV board

If compressor is running and no frost whatsoever on evaporator then it sounds like a sealed system problem.  Unit was in storage for a year.  Was it transported on it's back or side before restarting?  Sometimes oil in the hermetically sealed compressor can transfer into the refrigerant lines and gum up the filter/drier causing a restriction.
