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!

Maglite 2aa back cap won't come off


SOUNDS LIKE IT IS CORRODED. PUT A FEW DROPS OF RAPID TAP TAPPING FLUID OR A FEW DROPS OF THIN MACHINE OIL AROUND THE CAP. LET IT SIT FOR A FEW DAYS AND TRY IT AGAIN.

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

I have a 6 d cell maglite. when i removed the end cap 3 batteries came out number four is stuck in the maglite. how can i get it out?


Not sounding good. I have had the problem in the past with Mag lights and though they are good, I always seem to have battery corrosion problems. What I have done is to get a non-metalic rod, wooden doweling has worked for me, carve a bit of a blade at the end, sort of like a long screw driver and work it into and between the batter and flashlight case. Not so hard as to deform the flashlight, but to try and break the seal between the corroded (I assume) battery and the case. Spray in some WD40 and work the dowel in and around the battery. Stop on occasion and tap the open end of the flashlight on a heavy rag laid atop a piece of wood to try and jar the battery loose. By repeating this process I have been able to remove corroded batteries, but not necessarily save the flashlight, as some times the on/off switch is corroded as well. Once you get the batteries out you may be able to clean the inside with some abrasive (steel wool?) to clean out the corrosion, but as I said, you may not be able to save the light. Best of luck!

Battery case does not open


make sures its being turned to the left, and if it will not come off, wrap duct tape around it to protect it and use large vice grips or pliers to get it off. Vice grips would be better as the lock but dont' lock them down too tight as you can dent the cap.

Is there a rear cap on a mini maglite. I am


Yes there is a cap. I had the same problem most likely the battery inside has corroded and leaked fusing the cap shut, contact MagLite at www.maglite.com if there were either Duracell, Eveready or Ray-O-Vac batteries in there they will replace it for free under warranty.

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.

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. :)
