At first light it DOES sound a bit confusing.
First, the definition of the term 'NON-LUMINOUS'; 'Not capable of PRODUCING light but can be capable of REFLECTING light from another source'.
For instance, our MOON is NON-LUMINOUS as it REFLECTS light from the Sun. The SUN is LUMINOUS as it produces light that is REFLECTED off the surface of the moon. And so, LUMINOUS means capable of PRODUCING light.
Now closely examine your flashlight.
The BATTERIES produce electrical energy which is transferred to the BULB which emits light, thus LUMINOUS. The tiny little BULB emits quite a lot of light for its small size. However, the bulb is contained within a concave silvered cone which REFLECTS,(NON-LUMINOUS) gathers and channels the emitted light from the BULB (LUMINOUS) into a BEAM which ILLUMINATES whatever you are pointing the flashlight at.
Our cameras would be just paperweights if there were no NON-LUMINOUS surfaces for the light to REFLECT off of, back into the camera lens, onto the 'plate' thus etching the image. For example, take a photograph in the dark without the flash and what do you get. No LUMINOUS, no NON-LUMINOUS.
And so there we have LUMINOUS and NON-LUMINOUS, ILLUMINATING our lives. Enjoy! :)

Tips for a great answer:
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.

In the early days of flashlights, the battery life was very short. So if you needed to use a flashlight, you would turn in on only for a second and then shut it off. Hence, the term flash-light.
