There's not much that can go wrong with the switch but things do happen.
I can tell you how to remove the SWITCH then you can go to www.maglite.com to order a new switch if you then think that's what the problem is. However, I do not know how to actually 'test' the SWITCH itsself to determine if it is defective. I have the rechargeable model which is nearly 20yrs old and it developed the same issue about 10yrs ago. I simply removed the old switch, ordered a new one, installed it and now have a happy light.
Let me know and I will send you instructions. :)

    Hi, I am having the same problem. the switch is working only some of the time. How can I remove the switch and replace it. I live in Indonesia, so it is difficult to send the unit to the shop.
    thanks

My mag lite led xl100 will not turn on, have fresh batteries installed


take the bottom piece off, remove the last battery and put a coating of petroleum jelly on the threads of the tube. Then take the bottom piece and run it all the way in and back off and back in 2 or 3 times. Then put a little more petroleum jelly on the threads and put the battery back in and the bottom piece. This should do it.

Light wont come on. Not the battery and not the bulb. What else could it be?


These are notorious for the switches failing. Mag will replace it for free if you ship it back to them.

How do you change the bulb in a mini maglite?


Carefully.....

Check in the base of the torch and you will see the spare bulb. you need to pull the spring out to get at it.
Next unscrew the top off the torch to expose the bulb.
The bulb is easily removed by gently pulling straight out. Replace the new bulb in the same way, lining the two pins up with the holes (doesn't matter which way round) and wipe the bulb clean of any finger grease etc.
Screw the top back on and replace the spring in the base before screwing the base back on..
Replacement bulbs, and all other parts for that matter, are easily sourced at any good outdoor store that stocks MAG.

Hope this helps..

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

Unless you are using your Mag. in extreme dusty, dirty conditions, it is not necessary to take it apart for cleaning. The Mag. is sealed against dirt and moisture. Mags are about the best lite made but always remember; 'Anything man made is subject to fail and usually at the most inconvenient time.' If I knew exactly where you are at in the dissasembly I could help you reassemble it. However, barring that;
Go to; www.maglite.com, they can help you with what ever you need.
Good luck. :)
