In order for a 4 way circuit to work, the 3 way switches must be wired properly at the the beginning and end of the path. So be sure that the common terminal on one of the 3 ways is wired to the hot source, and the common on the second 3 way is wired to the the hot terminal on the lights.
At the receptacle the black cable wire from SW1 is connected to one of the hot terminals and the red wire is spliced to the white wire on the 2-conductor cable running to SW2. The white wire is wrapped with electrical tape to mark it as hot. The black wire is connected to the second hot terminal on the receptacle and to the top terminal on SW2 at the other end.
The common terminals will always be connected to a hot wire, either from the source or on the light fixture. These connections can be reversed if it’s more convenient, as long as one of the 3 way common terminals connects to the hot source and the other one connects to the hot on the load, these circuits will work properly.
Check to be sure the traveler wires only connect between the traveler terminals on the switches. Also be sure the neutral from the source is connected to the neutral terminal at the light. A neutral wire will not be used with these switches, although some smart switches may make use of a neutral wire to operate the device.
