well, the red wire in mine doesn't connect at all to the output jack.
Are you sure that yours did? Also, which end isn't connected? I cant really tell with the pictures you posted-they're kinda small. the only red wire i have in mine connects to the batterie connector then up and is soldered in a hole near the adapter jack. Are the wires in our pedals different colors? How are you powering your pedal? By battery or adapter? Just a thought but if your red wire is the same as mine then if you tried an adapter then it might work. But i'm not sure. Reply back maybe with a larger pic if you need to. THanks!
