Check all of your solder joints carefully. I had a similar problem with one of the ones I built. I had missed a joint on one of the risers.
I also had another place where I had solder bridge a gap that it was not supposed to. I do not remember which caused the symptoms you are seeing, but once I found it it solved the problem.
I hope that helps.
