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!

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!

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.

Where do I send my Maglite for repair?


hello
the warranty details and the address are here Albert. Good choice in flashlights, but you may wish to look at LED units. The technology has moved on, and Cree LEDs are incredibly bright for the size. Some comapnies make LED modules for Maglight. I have one.

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..
