LED issues with pedal

The Fulltone OCD works perfectly, but the LED only turns on when I pull out the jack from the input. Sound works and all controls work. Just this stupid LED. I replaced the LED, and still no action. Got any suggestions?

Is this a new pedal? Has it always behaved this way? Sounds like a miswire. First place I'd examine is wiring at the foot switch.

Hm. Many pedals are wired so the input gets grounded when nothing is plugged into the input. So, your description of the problem suggests the led might be improperly wired, or inadvertently shorted, to the tip of the input jack.

So touched up all solderjoints. replaced LED, changed out input jack. no luck so far.
I believe it is dealing with the input jack, because when I unplug, the LED flashes. I put a used jack on there to try and no luck, so off to get a new jack and test again.
