With full-charged battery, light is very dim unless I hit it on my palm. What do you suppose is wrong?

1st question how long have you had it they come with a full 1 year warranty ! That said
You most likely have a Dirty/bad connection between battery and light
1st Remove battery Pack or cells LOOK for Debri, Corrosion, Dirt etc. on contacts to battery on battery pack , if you find any the eraser of a good pencil works well to clean contacts
2nd Make sure all sections of light are going together completely Battery compartment and Light head

Good Luck
Because the only thing besides that is usually the switch , which is almost impossible to repair

No power when I try and turn it on

Make sure the spring that pushes up against the battery doesn't have any corrosion from a leaky battery on it. If you put the batteries in backwards the light won't come on either.

Flashlight batteries stuck in body

There are a couple of ways that can free a cell that has expended and is wedged inside a light.

One is to remove the tailcap and rap the end of the battery tube squarely against a piece of soft wood like pine. It will keep from damaging the end of the battery tube and the shock my slowly work the cell out of the light until it comes out.

Another is to tie a strong cord around the head of the light so that when you hang it the tail end is hanging down. Remove the tailcap, of course, and go outside to a safe place where a flying battery won't hurt anyone or anything. Start swinging the light as fast as you can so that centrifugal force can pull the stuck cell out of the battery tube.

There are a couple of other things you can do if the cell is near enough to the end of the battery tube.. If you have a soldering iron and can reach to the end of the battery with it, try soldering a strong length of wire to the end of the battery and pull the cell out.

I hope one of these helps. ;)

How to repair SunLight Underwater Kinetics SL6 Dive Light

Corrosion is a problem! I found that WD40 with a hard bristle tooth brush sometimes does the trick. Clean the corrosion and check that it hasn't corroded completely through the coil or where it connects. Replace the batteries and try again. If it has a standard filament light globe it can be checked with a multimeter ( should show around 7 ohms).

Rayovac 360 sportsman lantern wont work

Since batteries and bulbs are new/ok, check for a bad connection. In older version using 4 lantern batteries, open the battery compartment by unscrewing the knob on top of lantern. The lantern bottom comes off once unscrewed (of course you did this to change batteries). There is a "C" clip on the lantern center shaft; remove this by prying with screwdriver or with pliers. Carefully raise the battery contact plate and check slip-on wire connections. Clean as needed (Scotch-Brite works well) and reconnect. Squirt some contact cleaner in exposed switches, work switches back and forth. Inspect circuit board for obvious corrosion or damaged parts (this damage may "total" the lantern). Re-install plate aligning grooves with ribs. Install batteries and test.

A cell (Duracell D) has got stuck in the barrell of my 3 D cell torch. All efforts to pry it loose with a sharp intrument have failed.

Most likely the Duracell Battery in there is corroded and had fused itself to the inner aluminum wall of the light. MagLite warranties their flashlight if damage from a battery was caused by either a Duracell, Ever-ready or Ray-O-Vac battery. Same thing happened to me, I brought it to their Repair Center in Ontario, CA and they tried to remove the battery while I waited, they couldn't remove it so the gave me a brand new flashlight. They are real good about backing up their product. You can call them at

Seems I have 2 of 3 batteries corroded in my Maglite and

I would purchase a spray can of electrical corrosion cleaner and spray some down the tube and let it dissolve some of the corrosion that has gotten the batteries stuck. The stuff I have is called BatteryKleen. Hope this helped and best wishes.

6 cell maglite. batterys will not fall out of tube.

They are probable corroded. Try tapping on solid surface that you will not damage, a piece of 2x4 works well. If still wont come out take off top of mag and see why they are stuck. If corroded clean wil baking soda and water then rinse well and use a hair dryer to dry completely. You may have corrosion on all other parts to.

3Batteries stuck in large metal flashlight

Corrosion in light caused by acid leakage from Alkaline batteries. Batteries may have exploded in light to remove batteries, I usually use a solution containing dial liquid soap and water. Going heavier with the soap and gently slide the solution into the light, cover it and sit it upwards, wait 24 hours then slide the alkaline batteries out. Not sure if light will still work afterwards but, hey at least you'll get those batteries out. ;)
