Question about Petzl Tikka Plus
My Petzl Tikka Plus Headlamp, some Batteries corroded in the battery compartment. I have cleaned the compartment with rubbing alcohol, and the actual contact did not get corroded; the lamp appears to work correctly but if the batteries are left in it for more than two days the batteries are dead. There must be a short in it but I am unable to further disassemble to to see if the inner works can be further cleaned. Direction on how to further disassemble it would be appreciated.
There's really not much that's serviceable in these things. Try cleaning all the terminals again but this time use VINEGAR instead of alcohol which does not neutralize the corrosion as vinegar does. Just dip a q-tip in the vinegar and swab it on the terminals, then with a dry one, swab up the excess. Then install all NEW batteries, do not mix old ones with new ones as the new ones cannot make the old ones work any better than they are used. If they still don't work, welome to the world of cheap products that are intended to be tossed when they quit functioning. Good luck. :)
