SOURCE: how to replace halogen bulb in petzl duo headlamp

Hi,

Easy enough. The grey rippled rubber ring around the glass is threaded. Grab it good and tight and twist anti clockwise and it unwinds like a tank track..

Hope this helps...

Not sure the A3300 has two AA sized batteries, but if it had:
Sure your batteries are still tip top?
Try two new AA sized NiMH rechargeable batteries or if you have some new alkaline batteries, put them in. the alkaline batteries won't last long, but it it could hint if the camera is still working and worth buying new rechargeables.
AA manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries cannot be used with this camera.
But even if it has one battery, check the battery.
Read other parts about batteries, in other help text I wrote for other users.

Battery exhausted, change them, take one photo, and camera says battery exhausted again. I have this camera one year and this is the first time this has happened.


Good quality rechargeable batteries are a must for these cameras. What I would suggest is AA' NI-MH rechargeable batteries the type that come already charged and when used and recharged will hold their charge up to 80% for a year. These batteries you will find will outlast any AA Alkaline type. If you are using a no name department store AA Alkaline type battery it's a wonder it even turned on.

Its a bit late now i know ; although somebody may get some use out of the information 'that' the 'myo xp' has a manufacturers warranty of 36 months (3 years),
mine has gone the same way after 18 months so its about to go ,back to its roots !

Try cleaning the battery contacts in the camera first with a pencil eraser and then with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

IT HAS BRAND NEW AA BATTERIES IT WILL TURN ON BUT THEN TURN OFF


Are you still using alkaline batteries? If so, alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pictures in a digital camera. Some may also have reached their shelf life, and though brand new and right out of the package, they may even have problems just powering startup of the camera. Digital cameras that use AA's for the most part should only be used with rechargeable batteries. If you read the camera's instruction manual concerning batteries, you may see the same recommendation.

Modern rechargeable batteries (I'm not talking about old NiCad's, those are awful) can hold over five times the amount of power of an old fashioned alkaline battery. Also keep in mind that rechargeable batteries will save you money in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may be angry with yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.

Petzl Tikka switch is not working properly. Light not steady.


Hi,

Would you describe the light as flickering and fading perhaps? Are you using rechargable or Lithium batteries?

Here's an excerpt from a Petzl alert put out a couple of years ago. It may shed some light on your problem..

LED light sources are susceptible to being damaged by the use of lithium batteries due to the different characteristics of lithium batteries in discharge. This has meant that some people have had problems with their headtorches failing when using such batteries... Petzl have reported this problem and other manufacturers are expected to follow suit. However this does not affect all head torches...

There are problems being reported over the LED lamps in certain headtorches when used with lithium batteries. Incandescent bulbs will also suffer a reduced burn-time when used with lithium batteries although this is less severe.
This is because the lithium batteries have a higher output during discharge.
The benefits of a lithium battery are the increased burn time, especially at low temperatures over the traditional alkaline batery.
LR6 or AA and LR03 or AAA are the two size of battery litkely to be used in a headlamp.
Petzl are one of the few manufacturers to advise on this at the moment. Other manufacturers products will also be affected.
The following Petzl headlamps should not be used with lithium batteries:
  • TIKKA / ZIPKA range: TIKKINA / TIKKA / ZIPKA / TACTIKKA / TIKKA PLUS / ZIPKA PLUS / TACTIKKA PLUS / TIKKA XP / TACTIKKA XP / TIKKA XP ATEX / TIKKA XP HAZLOC.
  • MYO range: MYOLITE 3 / MYO 3 noir / MYO XP.
  • DUO range: DUO LED 5.
  • SAXO AQUA.
  • MYOBELT 3
  • DUO LED 3.

    Petzl Tikka Plus Headlamp has a short and is eating batteries


    There's really not much that's serviceable in these things. Try cleaning all the terminals again but this time use VINEGAR instead of alcohol which does not neutralize the corrosion as vinegar does. Just dip a q-tip in the vinegar and swab it on the terminals, then with a dry one, swab up the excess. Then install all NEW batteries, do not mix old ones with new ones as the new ones cannot make the old ones work any better than they are used. If they still don't work, welome to the world of cheap products that are intended to be tossed when they quit functioning. Good luck. :)
