Question about MagLite Mag-Lite& Flashlight
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
