Question about MagLite Mag-Lite& Largehead Flashlight
I had a very similar issue with a mini-maglite... I finally found the issue to be in the switching system which is two parts... The first is found under the focusing turret of the flash light that should turn it off and on and adjust the beam. Remove the light bulb and pry off the part from both edges (the part says do not remove)... Once off remove the batteries and the second part should follow the batteries down the shaft... If it doesn't come out You may have to rotate it a little.
Once it's out inspect the contact that would be striking the outside edge of the rim... It should be lay flat across the top of part two of the switching system... My issue was it was bend up a little... If it is use something (it is removable but be gentle with the part)... Once You have it flat reinstall and reinsert followed by the batteries. Once part two of the switching system is installed and secure at the top of the flashlight cylinder reinsert switch part one into switch part two and then gently re-insert the bulb without bending the two bulb leads... The light should illuminate at this point. Once the lens and turret are re-installed it should work as normal again... If You had the same issue I had.
