1 Answer

Streamlight stinger LED 75711 will not turn all the way off. a very dim light stays on constantly

It got wet. It will charge and it will turn on bright as ever, but when i turn it off it doesnt turn all the way off... It just keeps a very dim (ia little dimmer than the DIM setting) on all the time. Will not turn completely off... What can be causing this? the switch? Id rather take it out and clean it or something myself it it could fix the probelm..

    When I turn the flashlight on, it comes on and shines bright. But when I turn the light off it does not go all the way off. Instead it keeps a very low, unusable glow that eventually kills th battery. I am aware that this model light has a low medium and high beam ans well as a strobe, but thats not what it is... I think it may be the switch. I just had it replaced because the light wouldnt turn on at all. But i did get it wet after that..

SOURCE: LED ON CHARGER DOES NOT COME ON STREAMLIGHT POLY

If your Polystinger is an old one could be the battery, if not could be the switch. The chargers rarely go bad. I suggest you send it in for warranty repairs. The switch has a lifetime warranty and batteries are covered within a year warranty accomodating proof of purchase. If you do not have warranty or proof of purchase, you can still send them in for Warranty. ;)

Where do i send my light to be repaired


Not to many places are around anymore that I know of that fix appliances whether it's a flashlight or whatever, unless you know somebody personally that fixes items on the side as a hobby. Maybe sometimes the company of the product offers a repair or replacement. But sometimes the cost of that process out ways the cost of a new one. That's partially the reason most places don't repair.

My stinger light will not take charge,if i use my other light i can charge the battery. what it can be the problem


All batteries go bad eventually. Heat is bad for them, as well as freezing. Slow charging is better than fast charging. Often if I take the built in batteries in to a electronics place, I can get cheap replacements that can easily be soldered in. Hobby shops are good for this, because they go through batteries so quickly on radio controlled toys.

My streamlight stinger xt flashlight won't charge in the holder, however, the second battery does charge in the "piggyback"


Could be a lamp holder or charger problem. I suggest going to Streamlight's website and find an authorized service center in your area or send it to the factory for repair.

Rechargable Stinger new bulb is dim orange


Could possibly be a bad switch, I would also get that battery tested out also. If you still have a receipt it should be covered under warranty. If not try sending it in anyway. Limited lifetime warranty does not include bulb, or batteries but, anything else on that Stinger should have a lifetime warranty. Of course that excludes abuse. Check out the website www.streamlight.com and go to FAQ for a nearest Authorized Service Center or send it directly to Streamlight. Address also listed on the website. Hope that helps ;)

Streamlight stinger not bright


No! the last thing you want to do is get another light, if this light is still in top shape I suggest you send it back to Streamlight for warranty repair. Lifetime warranty on the light alone as far as the battery goes if you're getting an authentic Streamlight Rechargeable battery there shouldn't be a problem. If it's a knock-off battery you're on your own. Check this website out www.streamlight.com send it back to the address in contact or find an Authorized service center in your area. From what you're telling me here I honestly think it's a bad battery, I could be wrong it may be a bad switch. The switch is covered under a lifetime warranty. So take advatange of it while you can! ;) hope that helps.
