Stumped by new Jack

Ok, by looking at the diagram, does the input jack look like a flush mount jack?

Also if it is of importance, My bass is an active bass.

Also, i got a new proline flush mount jack, soldered it up, doesnt work.

Lol? do i have a dead jack or the WRONG jack?

So i put in the old jack and it works.

But i want the new jack in because the old jack is loose on the inside.

what do you guys think?

Well I would say that if you put in the old jack and it works, generally that would mean the new jack is faulty. OR you purchased the wrong kind of jack. If I'm not mistaken your setup will require a stereo jack rather than a mono so make sure you have a stereo jack.

TWL.. I kinda ran into this very same issue with my Fender Precision 'Lyte' just a few weeks ago.. The replacement jack has to have the exact same pin configuration as the original one. I solved my issue with a careful examination and a handy DMM. The replacement jack in an active circuit intentionally breaks the circuit with the battery.. inserting the jack completes the circuit inside (the ground portion) I think perhaps you might have the correct replacement, but the three leads have to have the original wiring config to make the D/C current flow once again. I wish I could be more precise for you...

Woot, I figured out the problem.

It was all in the wiring setup i had.

I just switched them around and eventually a combination worked

So YAY!!!

I don't see how anyone would know how to set up this wiring, since it was completely different than my original jack.

There are no diagrams or anything either for this proline flush mount jack.

I guess im just not electrosavvy.

I found with mysterious stereo jacks is that the only way to be dead certain which terminal goes to which part of the plug is with an Ohmmeter, unless you can actually see the innards of the jack.
