    Maglites are notorious for having problems with the base of the flashlight not making good connection with the barrel... Try twisting the screw cap on the tailend of the flashlight off and clean the threads with a cloth and reinstall... I've had great success just by twisting it loose and retightening... Give it a shot it just may solve your issue.... let me know K

Sounds like a bad switch, but if you live in the US, you have a limited lifetime warranty on your light.

You should also consider installing a LED bulb in your light. If you use it much at all, it will quickly pay for itself in battery life and the light is a lot whiter.

Why does my 2d mag flash light stay dim


Check for corrosion at the bulb, or the spring or the switch. This happens sometimes when batteries leak internally.

My maglite recharable three battery light will not turn on. The battery is ok and bulb looks ok. I dropped it once. Need help.


Best thing to do is send in for warranty repair if the battery an bulb is OK. I would replace the bulb first to verify that it is OK. If it does not work then go to:

and find the nearest repair center.

I have a five D cell Maglite. Seems to always


There are diffferent mag lite bulbs made for different amounts of batteries. Be sure that you have the 5 cell light bulb. Also try to keep your fingers off the glass. if you get any oils on it, wipe it off before turning it on.
Also you can get mag lite specific bulbs...they cost more but they're worth it.

Rechargeable maglite won't turn on.


I found out the light bulb was bad even though it looked good. Had a fine break in the filament that I couldn't see with my eyes. Pulled the light bulb part way out, put a voltage meter on the two prongs. It showed I had voltage right up to the light bulb which told me the light bulb was bad. Ordered a new one and it works.
