And you have some other problem if the output side of a 7805 is showing anything other than five volts. You should be able to feed anything into it up to its maximum rating of (if memory serves) 40v and get 5v out. If there isn't anything in the ground path of the 7805, replace it; if there is (for instance, a pot or diode, or any sort of active circuitry), check it carefully. -- Ian

Bill, try putting a load on the output of the power supply and then
looking again. A 12V automotive tail or brake light bulb might do
the trick. These supplies were designed to run with a load.
