Question about MagLite Mag-Lite& Flashlight

Open Question

I have a 3-D Maglite which shines dim. I replaced batteries and bulb and the flashlight is still dim. I have taken out the switch assembly and stripped it completely down and found some markings on a

I have used an anti-seize lubricanton the threads on the headpiece and down by the batteries. Is there something that can be done to repair the actual switch? I read silicone lubricant allows electricity to pass through better. Would it be worth it to try on the pieces in the switch? I'm for trying to fix this piece rather than purchase a new one, I'm trying to learn as much as I can about how things work and repairing. Thanks

    Cut a portion of my question. I found scratch-like marks on the tab that rests against the light's housing as well as the ring in the piece that "clicks" has faded some. I don't know if those are significant, but the switch was completely clean and intact when I disassembled it.

Why does my 2d mag flash light stay dim


Check for corrosion at the bulb, or the spring or the switch. This happens sometimes when batteries leak internally.

My 6d maglite keeps blowing the bulb


6D Maglite? As in 6 D cell batteries?

1-1/2 Volts (Each battery), times 6 = 9 Volts.
Using the proper bulb?

The original is a Krypton bulb. (No, I didn't make the name up)

Guess what happens if you put a 3 Volt bulb with 9 Volts?

1 "D" cell battery is corroded and stuck inside.


Here are the instructions:

If you remove the tail cap (the part that you unscrew to put the batteries in the flashlight) and the head assembly (the part that has the light bulb) you should be able to push the battery out. Wear some of those disposable latex gloves as that chemical that comes out of the batteries is very corrosive. Or at least wash your hands really well before touching anything, especially your eyes. Good luck.

My maglite recharable three battery light will not turn on. The battery is ok and bulb looks ok. I dropped it once. Need help.


Best thing to do is send in for warranty repair if the battery an bulb is OK. I would replace the bulb first to verify that it is OK. If it does not work then go to:

and find the nearest repair center.

Repaced bulb and battery light will not come. Switch replaced in 2004


The switch probably went bad again, contact Maglite at www.maglite.com and they will replace it at no charge.

I have replaced batteries and bulb in maglite flashlight. Problem is still the same. The light comes on but immediately dims to very poor light. Can't get at switch ---it's a maglite.


Sounds like a bad switch, but if you live in the US, you have a limited lifetime warranty on your light.

Contact Maglite at: http://www.maglite.com/feedback.asp

You should also consider installing a LED bulb in your light. If you use it much at all, it will quickly pay for itself in battery life and the light is a lot whiter.

Rechargeable maglite won't turn on.


I found out the light bulb was bad even though it looked good. Had a fine break in the filament that I couldn't see with my eyes. Pulled the light bulb part way out, put a voltage meter on the two prongs. It showed I had voltage right up to the light bulb which told me the light bulb was bad. Ordered a new one and it works.
