I bought the glowbouy last year. I replaced a bulb, charged it up and now it doesnt work. The light switches on for a split second when i go o switch it from off to light. The light goes on briefly then off but is off when its in the on position. Is there an internal circuit board issue?

I bought mine in 2008, used it once, and it has been on a shelf in my basement until this week. I did find a comment in the manual that indicates that the battery would need a 36 hour continuous charge to recondition the battery if it had not been on the charger for an extended period of time. I have another 24 hours to go before I know if it worked. Anyone out there still dealing with these issues? Or have found a place to get a replacement battery?

    It looks like we're all out of luck. My pool company called their distributor for me because she knew he had sold them at one time. However, he ran out of any stock that he had and told her the company was sold and these lights are not being made anymore. That means no warranties, no parts, and no service. Might as well take it apart and see what you can do on your own. I really liked this light, too (sigh) and noticed Walmart and Target are selling similar lights but I'd hate to put that kind of money out again if I can fix the one I have somehow. Good luck everyone.

It sounds like your swimming pool light is not holding a charge. This normally indicates that the batteries have expired their useful life and need to be changed. Even rechargeable batteries are not designed for permanent use.

GlowBouy not lighting up, no matter how long charged

Most of the time, that is going to indicate a problem with the battery no matter what type of swimming pool lights you have, but you are in luck, because I have located a copy of the owners manual for this light. Hope this helps!

Samsung DLP model hln617w won't turn on (not bad bulb)

Samsung is notorious for having bad color wheels in their DLPs. Well lets just say they are like toasters, they only last a certain amount of time. If the color wheel isn't spinning or is broken, the set will power down almost immediately after you hit the button, you may not even hear the entire fire up jingle. Check the wheel, if you can see the bulb light up for that split second. Actually, check it whether the bulb lights up or not.

1998 tahoe brake lights don't work replaced switch still dont work touch and go

There is a clip that gets worn on the brake pedal that holds the switch tight to one side. It must be put on correctly or else the brake lights will come on for a split second and then go out when you push the brake pedal down further.
