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.

You probably have corrosion from a battery. Protect your eyes, as batteries contain acid. With the cap off, you will need to tap the side of the case with just enough effort to dislodge the batteries. Start with the open end of the case pointing down and away from you. You can also tap the bottom of the case (the opened end) down on a surface to help the batteries along, but be careful not to bend the case. As batteries begin to exit, remove them and set aside. Continue in this fashion until all of the batteries are removed. Remove any residue left in the case, again, protecting your eyes. Even the dust from the batteries can hurt your eyes. Should you even think that you have gotten any particles in your eyes, stop immediately and flush your eyes with water, holding them open. Flush with copious amounts of water and seek immediate medical attention.
Best regards, --W/D--

Replace batteries


Marcia Boal... hello,

If our battery has corroded it may be impossible to get the end (opposite the light) cap to come off. The light is designed to be moisture resistant... Likewise even penetrating oil cannot get in...

To guarantee long reliable service it is best to put a tiny dot of grease on the threads on assembly.

Maglite Solitaire makes a wonderful little flashlight...
(all metal construction... single AAA battery)...
((Mini = 2 AAA batteries... opens the same)).

Basic colors included black, red, silver & blue
but this particular light was also quite popular for commercialization... often displaying many BIG NAME
COMPANY LOGOs.

The initial closure of the end cap can be quite loose to be effective because of it's O-ring design... however some folks put the end cap on too tight...

The

It might take some serious force to get it open again.

Consider using a piece of leather in a pair of pliers to avoid marring the case. Reassemble without over-tightening.

Hope this helps!

My 6d maglite keeps blowing the bulb


6D Maglite? As in 6 D cell batteries?

1-1/2 Volts (Each battery), times 6 = 9 Volts.
Using the proper bulb?

The original is a Krypton bulb. (No, I didn't make the name up)

http://www.toolup.com/maglite_lmsa601_mag-num-star-6d-relacement-bulb.aspx

http://www.batteryjunction.com/maglite6c.html

Guess what happens if you put a 3 Volt bulb with 9 Volts?

I have changed batteries, bulbs done everythiing I know of. Maybe in the Switch??????????????? It is a 2 D cell flashlight. fairly new


I have several maglites and have used them for years. The first thing I would make sure of is that the bulb you replaced was the right one for 2 D-cell flashlights, specifically for maglites. Other bulbs won't work properly. Next I would make sure all contact points for batteries are clean. The ones you can reach on batteries,base of bulb and base cap for light can be cleaned with fine grade sand paper, emery board or steel wool. On the contact bar that runs the length of inner tube you can check where switch makes contact. If corrosion is evident you can lightly scrape with long blade screwdriver or other tool or knife. I have rarely had a bulb burn out immediatly after installation. I would check bulb again and then make sure that end cap and top assembly are threaded in place. Also try rotating beam adjusting setting back and forth several times. I'm sure it could be the switch I've just never had that problem. Hope this helps. thanks

Yes there is a cap. I had the same problem most likely the battery inside has corroded and leaked fusing the cap shut, contact MagLite at www.maglite.com if there were either Duracell, Eveready or Ray-O-Vac batteries in there they will replace it for free under warranty.

Well, first off, you could keep the batteries out of it until you wish to use it. Secondly a model of the flashlight would be nice. Also check this http://rivergum.net/page/48 it has a disassembly instruction howto for a more common model, but I don't know exactly what kind you are using.

There is also this http://www.students.niu.edu/~z115902/MagLiteDisassembled/Fully%20Built.html
