Question about Vivitar 900x 28-piece Microscope Set
VIVITAR 900X MICROSCOPE FIRST TIME USING CAN'T GET THE LIGHT TO COME ON TO SEE THE SLIDE??
Same problem, tried flipping it every which way with no luck - both the light itself and the arm that hold it. Finally, when trying to change the batteries, I noticed that they battery housing was odd: usually the positive end of the battery is against the node, and the negative end against the spring. This is true for one of the batteries, but for the other one has to turn it backwards, so that the positive end is against the spring. This is the only time I have seen a battery go in that way, and so naturally I had not looked for -/+ labels, but had just put the batteries in the housing in the way one would assume they go. When I changed the one around (and it was labeled that way), it solved the problem and the light came on. I don't know if I just got lucky, but you might as well try and see if it works for you.

I had this same problem...I spent about a half and hour messing with bulbs and batteries, and then my 9 year old finally figured out that all that we had to do was turn the light side up (to face to bottom of the black plate) and it comes on automatically. When turned down towards the feet of the microscope, it shuts off. Hope this helps!
