SOURCE: Keeps turning itself off when adjusting beam

It sounds like the spring in the tail cap may be depressed which would cause intermittent contact with the negative end of the Batt. Shake the flashlight vigorously, you should NOT hear ANY noise. If you DO, take the end cap off and pull on the spring, you are trying to stretch it out a bit, replace the cap and shake it again. Go through these steps until it is QUIET when you shake it.
Also make sure there's NO CORROSION at the Positive and Negative ends of the contacts.
Maglites are pretty user friendly and the best light money can buy. I have the rechargeable model which I carried for 21 years during my tour in law enforcement.
Anyway, if it still refuses to work properly, go to; www.maglite.com they are based in California. They will help you get it going. Good luck. :)

SOURCE: 2AA LED Maglite not working

The Led are most likely not burned out they last 10,000 hours or more. Sounds more like defect.

Well, first off, you could keep the batteries out of it until you wish to use it. Secondly a model of the flashlight would be nice. Also check this http://rivergum.net/page/48 it has a disassembly instruction howto for a more common model, but I don't know exactly what kind you are using.

There is also this http://www.students.niu.edu/~z115902/MagLiteDisassembled/Fully%20Built.html

SOURCE: My AA Mini Maglite needed

You've introduced two variables to your flashlight, and each needs to be tested independently. It's possible that one--or both--isn't working properly. It's equally possible that one or both of these replacement parts isn't perfectly meshing with the conductive areas of the maglite body, meaning that they're not completing the basic circuit needed to power the light.

The best way to test your tailcap switch is either to try it with another maglite or test its continuity with a multi-tester. With the tester, you should be able to toggle between readings of infinite resistance (switch off, no circuit) and little or no resistance (switch turned on). If you're stuck at infinite resistance, there's a problem with the switch.

You could test the LED insert by using test clips to touch power to the module to see whether it will light up.

My guess is that the components are probably good, but that somewhere along the line, there's a break in the basic circuit. My leading suspect would be the connection from the LED module to the negative (flashlight body) side. It could be that the module is slightly out of round and it's simply not making contact. It could be that the finish of the maglite is acting as an insulator. However, I would recommend deferring this analysis until you've confirmed that each component works fine.

Good luck!

I need the small tool to be able to get into the outer cover( the black button )to be able to change the bulb. where I can replace the bulb.


I believe you have to take the rubber cover over the button off, then push on the edges of the button, it's attached to the light assembly so you can pull it out, call Maglite tech, they'll help. Good luck.

I just replaced the batteries in my 2 D LED maglite with duracell alkaline batteries and after about 5 minutes use seem to have blown the led. Torch is less than 1 year old and has had limited use. Looking...


The resistor needs to be disconnected at one end -- if the LED is removed this should have the same effect as disconnecting one end of the resistor.

Put the probes of an ohmeter on each end of the resistor -- if it reads 0 ohms (or near zero), it is shorted.

My Maglite torch that takes two AA batteries will not switch on. I think I require a replacement were the bulb fits into its connection.


Hi,
The top just screws off and the bulb just pulls out....there should be a replacement bulb in the bottom cap under the spring inside that little plastic holder...just do not touch the bulb with you fingers when installing it. use a tissue paper to hold the bulb...
Line up the two little wires with the holes and gently press the new bulb in...

How do you change the bulb in a mini maglite?


Carefully.....

Check in the base of the torch and you will see the spare bulb. you need to pull the spring out to get at it.
Next unscrew the top off the torch to expose the bulb.
The bulb is easily removed by gently pulling straight out. Replace the new bulb in the same way, lining the two pins up with the holes (doesn't matter which way round) and wipe the bulb clean of any finger grease etc.
Screw the top back on and replace the spring in the base before screwing the base back on..
Replacement bulbs, and all other parts for that matter, are easily sourced at any good outdoor store that stocks MAG.

Hope this helps..

I have a mini Maglite with one battery stuck in the barrell


I had a similar problem. My wife put two AA rechargeable batteries into her mini maglite. Apparently the AA rechargeables have a slightly larger diameter than alkaline batteries. One of them was stuck in the barrel. I was able to remove it by first removing the lens and bulb so as not to break it. Then I slammed slamming the barrel down hard onto the carpet on our floor. This hard shock jarred the battery loose and it came out of the barrel. Hope this helps someone out.
