Hi, I had the same problem. Your battery is strong enough to power the little light but not the spot light. I connected a motorcycle battery charger directly tot he battery and the light worked. So, you like me, need a new battery as ours are bad.

Corrosion is a problem! I found that WD40 with a hard bristle tooth brush sometimes does the trick. Clean the corrosion and check that it hasn't corroded completely through the coil or where it connects. Replace the batteries and try again. If it has a standard filament light globe it can be checked with a multimeter ( should show around 7 ohms).
When you hit the button, does the light come on? If so, and there is no cold air try a freon charge kit with dye in it. These kits are relativly inexpesive and come with yellow glassed and a UV flashlight. Fill the freon and let it run for a couple days. Then using the glasses and flashlight in a dim area, look for splashes of green. THen you can get the oring or what ever is leaking, change it, then have a pro evacuate and re-charge the system.
In March, 2006, Black & Decker purchased Vector Products, Inc.
Since the acquisition, Black & Decker has assumed the manufacturing
of all Vector products. For customer service and warranty information
for Vector products, please contact Black & Decker Customer Service.
There are 2 tiny clips that hold the bulb in and make contact with the rim of the barrell. They can be difficult to get back in without prying the plastic piece out of the end. Once you pry it out, it never works the same.
Check the contacts going to the batteries. The negative contact is going the flashlight body. While the other starts at the center of the bulb socket that goes to the switch and finally to the positive terminal of the battery. Get it done and send an e-mail .
It is the battery, I have a similiar Vector light for a few years and tried re-charging the battery but only the little LED light would come on. I have another Vector light, same model and switched batteries from the worjking one to the non-working one and now it works fine.
I then proceeded to purchase a new battery for the non'working one and when I arrived home I installed it and turned on the main light, still won't turn on, I tried the LED's, they work. I figured maybe the new battery needs a good charge so I plugged the charger in and charged the light for 12 hours, still no main light.
I guess the new battery is defective, so now I will return it and exchange it for another one.
It sounds as if the connections in the back of the radio may not be continually connected to the contacts on the charging base. You might want to make sure that the radio is properly loaded in the cradle of the charging stand.
The reason why the lights 'flicker' is because if your power goes out, the light on the radio will come on when it detects no power to the charging base. This is a feature to many new emergency radio gadgets. Imagine a storm rolling through your area and the power goes out in the middle of the night. Your Vector radio's LED lights come on so that you aren't searching for the radio in the dark.
