I have changed batteries, bulbs done everythiing I know of. Maybe in the Switch??????????????? It is a 2 D cell flashlight. fairly new


I have several maglites and have used them for years. The first thing I would make sure of is that the bulb you replaced was the right one for 2 D-cell flashlights, specifically for maglites. Other bulbs won't work properly. Next I would make sure all contact points for batteries are clean. The ones you can reach on batteries,base of bulb and base cap for light can be cleaned with fine grade sand paper, emery board or steel wool. On the contact bar that runs the length of inner tube you can check where switch makes contact. If corrosion is evident you can lightly scrape with long blade screwdriver or other tool or knife. I have rarely had a bulb burn out immediatly after installation. I would check bulb again and then make sure that end cap and top assembly are threaded in place. Also try rotating beam adjusting setting back and forth several times. I'm sure it could be the switch I've just never had that problem. Hope this helps. thanks

Keeps blowing new bulbs


Since this is a simple construction flash light (no electronics) make sure you are installing the correct bulb for the voltage of the batteries.
If you use a bulb that is for a 2 cell (3.0 volt) in a flashlight that takes 4 cells (6.0 volt) the bulb will burn out every time.

Blackhawk Legacy X9-P Won't work replaced old batteries nothing


If you have an ohm meter, you can check the bulb to see if the bulb has burned out. It is possible that the bulb has failed.

Another thing to check is inside the tube of the flashlight to make sure that you are getting a good, clean contact at the top end of the tube and at the bottom, normally where the spring makes contact with the bottom of the battery. Sometimes the contact become corroded or coated with a slight "glaze" which prevents power flow through the flashlight. Gie them a good going over and wipe off any residue that might be there.

The last thing to check is the switch itself, although not know to fail very often, they sometimes do due to being subjected to rough handling or a good jolt from being dropped, etc. Just follow the path of checking everything in the chain and you should be able to get the light working again.

Rechargeable mag light not working .


when you dropped it you probably knocked the contacts inside out of place. or you broke a soldered connection. if you can take it apart you can most likely fix this yourself. when you remove the front lens assembly there is a retaining clip that you need to remove so you can take the guts out.....please rate this

Nintendo ds lite wont turn back on


Not sure if this will help you, but my son dropped his on to a concrete pavement and it wen black, the charge lite would only come up for one second then go out when I plugged it in to charge. Just for fun, I had a spare battery and changed it. In this instance, the system started working again.

Not sure how this can happen, but dropping it on the floor seems to have killed the battery that was in it. A simple replacement battery did the trick for me.

Good Luck in fixing yours
