Hello, thanks for the prompt reply.

I see the two pads, and I've used a tester to check the continuity between these and the three solder points on the power jack.

...  It's working now.  Must have been my bad soldering...  Thanks again.

BTW, what does the J in J_GND mean?

If you have Rev 901, then there is a 2 pad connector across the board
from the power jack. This two pad connector has V_BATT and GND on it.
That would be the logical place to connect up the power and ground.
