My Mini mag AA worked until I took it apart to install an LED kit
Now it dosen't work at all. I put it back together and tried the old ***'y and it dosen't work either. I took the black module apart and cant seem to get it working again eith er with the LED or the Old parts re-assembled. It is driving me nuts.. Do I have to buy another new MiniMag or can I get a new module. I think I may have drpooed something small on the floor , I cant be sure but if my wife vaccumed the floor I may have lost something I know nothing about. Please help, I'm now sutck with an upgrade kit and an old minimag that won't work. Thank You, Joe Ciarlanto

take the bottom piece off, remove the last battery and put a coating of petroleum jelly on the threads of the tube. Then take the bottom piece and run it all the way in and back off and back in 2 or 3 times. Then put a little more petroleum jelly on the threads and put the battery back in and the bottom piece. This should do it.
well, I have a 3 cell mini maglite AA with a corroded battery stuck up next to the LED. I have searched but not found a way to remove the LED to push out the battery with a dowel. The best solution I read about was to drill a hole in the battery and insert a large screw and pull it all out. (My Maglite is from 2009 or 2010, but I think they made this model in 2011, 2012 and 2013- this is for SEO!)
Yes there is a cap. I had the same problem most likely the battery inside has corroded and leaked fusing the cap shut, contact MagLite at www.maglite.com if there were either Duracell, Eveready or Ray-O-Vac batteries in there they will replace it for free under warranty.
Check in the base of the torch and you will see the spare bulb. you need to pull the spring out to get at it. Next unscrew the top off the torch to expose the bulb. The bulb is easily removed by gently pulling straight out. Replace the new bulb in the same way, lining the two pins up with the holes (doesn't matter which way round) and wipe the bulb clean of any finger grease etc. Screw the top back on and replace the spring in the base before screwing the base back on.. Replacement bulbs, and all other parts for that matter, are easily sourced at any good outdoor store that stocks MAG.
I have several of these flashlights and experienced the same problem. Here's my solution: take off the light end and you will see a black base where the bulb is inserted into. The black base rotates. If all else is functional (batteries, bulbs, etc.), when you rotate this black base, the light should come on. Moving the base back and forth several times seems to help also (it seems there must be some kind of contact problem). All that's left is replacing the light end.
Unless you are using your Mag. in extreme dusty, dirty conditions, it is not necessary to take it apart for cleaning. The Mag. is sealed against dirt and moisture. Mags are about the best lite made but always remember; 'Anything man made is subject to fail and usually at the most inconvenient time.' If I knew exactly where you are at in the dissasembly I could help you reassemble it. However, barring that;

Good luck. :)
