I've owned this flashlight for years. In the comments above, ignore the instruction to remove the rubber casing around the lamp area. Simply grasp the whole front of the lamp piece (including the rubber cover), and twist in a counter-clockwise direction to remove. Then squeeze together the two black tabs and pull the battery compartment out to replace the batteries.

The front outer rubber cover is removeable. Once you take it off with your fingers, the front unscrews revealing a two piece battery case. Squeeze the top flanges together and lift out, then the battery case shown in the box just lifts out.

    It does NOT unscrew... and, what "flanges" are you talking about???

  • Dropbear67 Mar 02, 2011

    You have to pull the front cover off (*the black rubbery bit surrounding the lamp area). It should be flexible to stop the water getting then you can unscrew the next bit.

    Step 1: pry rubber casing from around lamp.
    Step 2: holding the flashlight between your knees and with lens facing up, rotate the lens counterclockwise until it's off. Once off there should be a kind of black plate with a spring in the center.
    Step 3: squeeze together the two raised lips on either side of this plate. This lifts out.
    Step 3: You should see a yellow handle that you lift up and the batteries will come up in the holder.

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!

How do I replace the led in a 2w d cell maglite


Unscrew the top half of the flash light and pull the bulb straight up, and it's out,

Not to mention there's usually a spare bulb in the base of the flashlight under the spring in a piece of foam. unless someone used it already,

Line up the two pins and slide it back into the to pin holes on top and with the bottom of the flashlight back on with battery's try the on off switch and make sure it lights up and not have dead battery's, if it lights up throw away the old led and screw on the top of flashlight,

If it still don't light check for new battery's.

What is the alignment of the batteries in a 3d cell?


put the first one in positive side toward the light,, and the rest go in the same way, make sure the spring is attached to the base and screw it on, the positive side of the battery is the side with the bump on the end,, if it doesn't work after that ,, in the end cap of the flashlight you should have a extra bulb,, replace that and try it ,, be sure to put the spring back on the end cap

How do you change the batteries on a Coleman Graphite flashlight?


All The info I can find nothing tells us how to change the batteries. Is this a rechargable light, if so the batteries are not available for replacement. If not then the top has to screw off, or the bottom plate must screw off, there isn't any other way. What I have read is that these on this light are very hard to remove, at least that is what folks are complaining about. this light has also been discontinued and no longer availabe. if your afraid of breaking the light then I would contact Coleman for their advice since there seems to be none to be found on any bulletins they have put out.

We changed the battery pack and the bulb and it wont come on so the switch is prolly defective where do we find how to repair the flash light


Alot of maglites are problematic with symptoms like this... I have found that the culprit many times is the screw cap on the bottom of the flashlight.
The elecrtrical connection needed between the spring in the end cap, the threads on the cap and the threads in the barrel of the flashlight...
Make sure you twist your spring a bit..the dissimilar metals can actually corrode between the spring and the cap... Then spin the threads a little... Then try the flashlight again...
This procedure may save yourself replacing a switch..

Flashlight only works when end cap is partially on. Will not work when cap is fully screwed in. New batteries installed.


Some models of the famous MagLite use this 'feature' as the on-off switch. I have several such myself.

I have a Streamlight Strion Xenon compact flashlight that has served me well for two years. Recently the 'twist to stay on' feature has failed. The 'push the tailswitch on' feature is still functioning,...


Ray, sounds like the switch has a problem. Streamlight is usually really good about fixing things. If you can drop by a Stream retailer in your area, they will probably give you a new tail cap. Or contact STREAM directly.
One thing, when you screw the tailcap tight, does the light come on? I have a SUREFIRE that does that, but I dont have a twist on Streamlight.
