Attention those experienced with electrical work: Light switches On in the Off position and Vice Versa

Good Morning,

I have a Levitron Two Position switch, which switches on in the OFF position.

I know a cheap fix is to just turn the switch around, but there is a sign at the bottom of the switch that says “Levitron” (wont look good)

I tried to switch the wires on the terminal and it still only turns on in the OFF position.

Before there was an old switch, which I took out and replaced with the new two position Levitron switch→ after I replaced it, ALL THE SWITCHES IN THE HOUSE NOW ONLY WORKED IN THE OFF POSITION.

I tried hard to switch the wires around but to no avail.

I made a wiring diagram for your convenience:

• There are three entry points into the box: From the Top, Top Left, and Bottom Left (denoted by the arrows)

• I didn’t put the green wire in the diagram because the switch works without it ( I am testing it with the old switch)

• The “B” marrett has a red and black wire was not connected to the switch and I am not sure where it originates from.

This is driving me nuts, please help thanks.
