Alot of maglites are problematic with symptoms like this... I have found that the culprit many times is the screw cap on the bottom of the flashlight.
The elecrtrical connection needed between the spring in the end cap, the threads on the cap and the threads in the barrel of the flashlight...
Make sure you twist your spring a bit..the dissimilar metals can actually corrode between the spring and the cap... Then spin the threads a little... Then try the flashlight again...
This procedure may save yourself replacing a switch..

Why is the green light blinking on the ryobi battery charger


please check if the RED LED light is flashing or not. If yes, this battery may defective.

If defective, try to repeat the conditions a second time by removing and reinstalling the battery pack. If the LED status repeats a second time, try charging a different battery.

If a different battery charger normally, dispose of the defective pack.

If a different battery also indicates "Defective", the charger may be defective.

My Metz 58 AF-2 isn't working, it still has all the lights and beeps but isn't flashing when you take the photo. I think it's the bulb but not sure on how I change this or if I can do it myself?


When you trigger a flash can you hear a high pitched sound (charging oscillator) or is muted? Are the batteries fresh? If indeed the discharge element is defective it needs to go in for repair or replace it.

I assume this is a cordless device ? if so than the intelligent charging devices used to charge the battery's is sensing a defective battery pack, if the battery pack is completely dead then this is a fault, you can try to flash charge the battery pack with a power supply that has no intelligence device.
when you get a bit of a charge in the battery pack try to install it into the charger again.
this works most of the time and be car-full to only flash for several min or so and use a 12 volt light IE Brake light bulb from a car in series with the power supply to regulate current.
also make cretin that the polarity is correct plus to plus and minus to minus.

Good luck and best regards Falco Mueller

Problem with headlights- only works on High beam. Is it possible to replace the bulb for low beam only or do I have to change the whole unit? basically, can it be repaired or do I need to buy a competely...


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. It all depends on what bulbs your car has. Some vehicles have a bulb that has low/high beam in the same bulb, while others have multiple bulbs. It may also be your actual light switch. You could have a loose wire or it may be defective. As far as the wheels, it could be the suspension, brake pads, tie rod. You may be low on power steering fluid. If you have additional questions, feel free to ask. Thanks for using FixYa.

Timer on my 200W transformer is working but lights will not turn on manually or by timer. when i turn on with manual switch they flash on for a second then turn off. i am just under 200W for total...


You posted under Intermatic-malibu power packs.
Wattage of bulbs must match wattage of power pack or bulbs and power pack will burn out.

Your power pack might be damaged beyond repair.

Vivitar 285 not working


You don't need a Manual.
In 285 HV there is only one Power on/off switch.
If that switch is on and batteries are new Alkaline (like duracell-no chepo )or fully charged and working rechargebles,and yet the ready light do not come the flash has defect inside.For sure.

No Flash On Polaroid IMPULSE AF Instant Camera


You gotta be kidding, you know they are stopping production of that film, right? Well, if you really want to try and repair, its probably the battery contacts in the film slot that are corroded, clean with a pencil eraser if you can reach them.
