I can't afford to hire an electricianso I tried to do new switches myself. There are 3 switches operating one light. Sometimes the wires are black, white, red or 2 black 1 red. I should have taken notice how the old switches were connected but now, the light only works if one of the switches is in the "on" position. It's totally fustrating and I know I installed the 4-way switch properly. Can someone e-mail me with color coding wire and which wire goes to what screw, please? TY
