I am so very glad you have asked this question.
Without wanting to upset you, you need to know there is a real danger of a house fire until this problem is fixed.
The flickering is a sign that there is too much electricity being used for the capacity of the electrical system.
Sort of like putting 8 people is a two-door Volkswagen beetle.
Shut off the electricity to the house before you work on the electric box and wiring.
I would start with the ground wire that goes from the fuse box to the earth, or ground.
I am not saying you can even find it!
Often, over time, the wire gets corroded or becomes too small for the load that is being put on it.
For most houses like yours, there should be a large copper wire, at least as big as a standard lead pencil, going from the buss bar in the electric box out to the ground, and very securely attached to a steel pipe of no less that 1/2 diameter that is has been driven vertically about 5 feet into the ground.
You local electrical house codes will define this for you.
Be absolutely sure your house does not have aluminum wire in the walls.
If it does, please write this down as a problem, I can help you with that also.
God bless your efforts.
Make sure you do not touch the new lamp with your bare hands. the oil from your fingertips damages the lamp. Use gloves or paper towel or the like to avoid touching the new lamp. This includes taking it out of the package.
there should be two rubber coverd buttons on back of solar panel , one should be marked power and one marked mode , the mode one should stop the flashing and move to constant on mode , also as with any solar lights the solar panel contains a light sensor (to shut off in daytime) if ANY source of light hits this at anytime of day it will shut of , so it is possible to self trigger it's self for (on/off) by it's own lights
Just buy a new one really if really need quick fix 1 dollar at store for 2 wire switch just tie wires one to first wire second to other wire to make bridge solder if u know how else just strip wires and twist together
If you are speaking of recessed lights, conversion kits are available that just screw in to replace the halogen lamp. As to wattage, it would depend on what you mean by decent light. If the existing level is ok, just purchase the corresponding led equivalent.
if its an old 2/4 or 8 foot tube light , these used the shade as part of the housing this is where the ballast /starter is located and other wiring is there too , to remove these old type , remove bulbs by gently twisting 1/4 turn and allowing tube ends to drop free(hold on to bulb !!) remove all bulbs this way , then locate the end where you'll see a nut , there's only one on one end , sometimes on fancy decorator lights they make the nut seem as part of the ornation of shade, but a carefull look and you will see the seams that make it removable , unscrew this and shade end will drop away , the trailing end will unhook when shade is aprox 33 degrees angle away from light these old fixtures can be quite heavy so be prepared for weight ! make sure you disconnect any power to light before working on anything inside of it ,including tube ends ,as I find these are whats bad most times (cracks)
well you will need to determine how large a wall pack you'll need these are most times rated in watts !! but a great source of and a place with plenty of choices is amazon.com they list lots of sizes there
if lamps frequently change there brightness , you most likely have a loose wire connection in your power supply someplace , contact a licensed electrician they have access to special equipment that uses infrared light to find loose connections faster than just looking/tighting every place
