Unscrew the top head of the flashlight and check the contact points next to the bulb. if all else fails buy another one and take that one back and tell them it's defective.

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!

Maglite 2aa back cap won't come off


SOUNDS LIKE IT IS CORRODED. PUT A FEW DROPS OF RAPID TAP TAPPING FLUID OR A FEW DROPS OF THIN MACHINE OIL AROUND THE CAP. LET IT SIT FOR A FEW DAYS AND TRY IT AGAIN.

My mag lite led xl100 will not turn on, have fresh batteries installed


take the bottom piece off, remove the last battery and put a coating of petroleum jelly on the threads of the tube. Then take the bottom piece and run it all the way in and back off and back in 2 or 3 times. Then put a little more petroleum jelly on the threads and put the battery back in and the bottom piece. This should do it.

Batterys stuck in a maglite flashlight


Ok, problem is the acid has corroded and caused a white powder residue to form, you will have to spray a solvent into the torch to free the batteries... bad news? the corrosion cannot be fully cleared and the maglite will always be on the blink... sorry but i have tried several times for people and just cannot clear it out fiully

I have an AA Mini Maglite and it quit working. I replaced the two batteries and lamp and still does not work. Any suggestions?


I have several of these flashlights and experienced the same problem. Here's my solution: take off the light end and you will see a black base where the bulb is inserted into. The black base rotates. If all else is functional (batteries, bulbs, etc.), when you rotate this black base, the light should come on. Moving the base back and forth several times seems to help also (it seems there must be some kind of contact problem). All that's left is replacing the light end.

Mini Maglite LED not staying on


I found this site because I too have a pile of these with that problem. I have had maglites since the time when they weren't available to the general public and have always liked them. These new LED lights are great for the light/size ratio and I was very sorry to see this product perform so poorly. After reading the comments here I went to the Maglite site and found some troubleshooting tips. Believe it or not I fixed the one in my hand and can't wait to go fix the others. They really need to spell out on the package how the LED unit works when the batteries get low. Apparantly when they do get low the unit won't dim, it will completely shut off. You turn it off and then back on again and it flashes on but then stays off. According to the troubleshooting there is a bit of electonics in this unit that will shut the unit off if the battery voltage falls below a certain threshold. This appears exactly like a poor contact problem. I thought I had try battery replacement on some of my units in the past. The toubleshooting section does also cover other possible issues and shows how to try to fix them - not a bad document. Here is the link - good luck - I hope they stay in business. I think they need to address this issue somehow or else they will silently loose their market share. http://www.maglite.com/pdf/CustServ/Mini%20Maglite%20LED%20FAQ5222007805552.pdf

Maglite LED. Light switch is intermittent. Have had the same issue with my 8 month old 2AA LED Maglite, don't have receipt and have tried finding a solution to get it fixed again. Lost my temper with it...


Hi,

Unfortunately not, I've seen more and more of these coming back to the shop here with faults. Mostly they seem to be connection problems like yours.
Pity, MAG are excellent and have really tarnished their reputation with this LED gimmick. A lot of the customers who return their LED's to us take a traditional MAG as a replacement..
