Wow what entertainment. Both the poster and the bobint17 don't have a clue how this flashlight works... why answer a question you don't know the answer too? To screw with people? To sound like you know what you're doing?

Anyway, the Gerber TX 3.0 uses a Luxeon 3 LED. There is no bulb. It is not designed as a user replaceable item and unfortunately even someone skilled at soldering and such can't fix the light because the head is permanently attached and not designed to be removed allowing access to the LED assembly. Can the head be removed? Possibly. Will it damage something while trying to remove it with a lot of force? Possibly. Should you try? No. Why? Because the light has a limited lifetime warranty from Gerber. Send it to them and they will fix or replace it!!!

Not sure which bit to unscrew when trying change battery in onyx50




The flashlight uses 1 AA battery. My guess, you should only have to unscrew the end cap. If you finds it very hard to unscrew the end cap off, it could be from the battery has explode and swollen. MAYBE - I see this happen in my daughters MAG flashlight. DO not keep your flashlight in the car with the batteries installed. The amount of heat in the cars can ruin the batteries in the flashlight.

Our flashlight stop working even with a brand new battery


The bulb may be blown. If the bulb is ok then you may have a broken wire, corroded connections or a bad switch.

How do I change the battery or batteries in a Gerber LED flashlight? The bottom seems to have a black plate that doesn't seem to be removeable.


Hello. The correct way to remove and replace the battery would be to unscrew the end cap all the way. The Battery will then fall away allowing for a new battery insertion. The "plate" is not suppose to be removed (according to Gerber Blades). Hope this helps.

I accidentally drop my gerber firecracker flashlight, when I turn it on its not working any more.How can I detach the crown from bulb to fix the problem.Thanks for the help.


Hi I had the same problem. It seems that when I dropped it the back buttton got stucked, so what I did was to unscrew the back part (as if to replace the battery) and gave it kind of gave it a knock or hit it softly just to jiggle the button. Scre it back on and got it to work, Hope it works for you.

The light fell and now the light doesn't work at all and there is a rattling noise like when a bulb is busted. How can I find and replace the correct bulb or might it be something else?


You'll need to dis-assemble to see exactly what broke. Most of the time, it is not worth fixing since it was dropped, something else will let go in the near future. Sorry.

You'll spend less $ buy buying a new one.

Rechargeable mag light not working .


when you dropped it you probably knocked the contacts inside out of place. or you broke a soldered connection. if you can take it apart you can most likely fix this yourself. when you remove the front lens assembly there is a retaining clip that you need to remove so you can take the guts out.....please rate this
