Our flashlight stop working even with a brand new battery


The bulb may be blown. If the bulb is ok then you may have a broken wire, corroded connections or a bad switch.

2 year old, well maintained Myo XP that has never been submerged or been seriously soaked. Yesterday, I turned it on and 1 second later it went out. Batteries are good. Wiring solid. No battery level...


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 !

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.

    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...

    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. :)

    My garmin 340 suddenly stopped working


    Ummmmm "Low battery"....... not too hard to figure out. You need to charge it for several hours. If the battery is low it WILL go out on you and during that time, the battery may recover enough to come on briefly then go off again. Please charge your battery!
