Question Photocell lamp post..

My new house has a lamp post with a photocell on it. Problem is the light stays on all the time when the switch is turned on. It is wired correctly and I was wondering if maybe the photocell could be bad...Any ideas?

Yes the photocell is bad. This is how they typically fail, in the ON mode.
Replace the photocell.
