Seems to me I had the same problem and it was the jack is labeled backwards. Also this is not the correct forum for this type of post.

I am new to this forum and don't know were to place this problem. I looked at the board and can't see another way to place the jack.

This forum is fine. It's a supported product. Below is a link to the post franklin97355 was referring to. I don't think you need to move anything, just change the +/- labels on the screw terminals.

That solved my problem. I was not comfortable with reversing wires were the marking planly show a + and -. I have let a lot of magic smoke out of a lot of parts and did not want to let it out of this one. Thanks for the friendly help.
