Hey Vicki, Did you remove all pieces of the old flint?? it needs to be clean.. The spark wheel must make good contact..(could the spark wheel be worn out??)..Some spark wheels have the carbide only on the edges as rings that do the sparking.. some very high end lighters have a solid carbide wheel..$$... make sure the sparking wheel is making good contact..(you may have to stretch the spring that pushes up on the flint..just a little... good luck..
Turn the bowl upside down and use a match or much better, a cigarette lighter to melt the wax directly below (normally above) the black wick, moving the flame it back and forward. Watch out for hot wax dripping onto your skin!
Then turn the bown over and use a butter knife to scrape the wax above the wick away and remove the wax above and on either side of the wick. You may have to do this operation a few times, but eventually you should be able to gently get the knife under the buried wick and (gently!) prise it back into an upright position.
Don't do this roughly, or you could snap the wick off at its base, it needs to be pretty much out of the wax and softened by the flame before you try to bend it back up.
Then light the cantle and let it burn for ten minutes, until the wax all around it is clear liquid - then blow it out, and after ensuring that the wick tip is no longer glowing, quickly crush a few absorbent paper towels into the bowl and upturn it again. The aim is to allow the towel to absorb excess molten wax, which should preven the wick from being buried under wax again when the candle cools.
I've seen spare tanks come up on eBay from time to time, for $30 - $50. If not, picking up a beat-up Cartier on the cheap just to remove and use its tank is an idea. Cartier does not sell spare parts of any kind (other than flints), so if your lighter needs a new tank they will probably insist you get a complete maintenance service, which can cost up to $300.
How high is the wick? It can be adjusted by pulling from either direction. Try soaking the cotton til you can see the fluid fill the compartment, or til it drips out the wick. Be sure the fluid has evaporated and the lighter is dry, before you try to re-light it.
sorry but I believe you have this posted in the wrong product
category? Please re-post the question in the proper category if this
is the case, otherwise you have my apologies. This is the car and

Hey there , you may need to change the key , at times liquid can affect the rubber cup under the key, and it stops working .. Thats what happened with my Compaq few months ago.
I got all those keys changed from www.laptopkey.com (they are an online store that sells replacement keys) i love they service and they price is reasonable
Yes, you can. Use either a butane grill lighter or a long stick match. Make sure the control knob is in the "light" position and the wick is in the right position. Light the long stick match or butane grill lighter, press the control knob in and while holding it in, touch the flame of the match or butane grill lighter to the wick and the wick should ignite. Once it ignites, quickly remove the match without knocking the tip off into the heater.
