I can't get my Petzl Micro to light up. I have tried new batteries and a new bulb but it still isn't working. What is the best way to clean the copper on the inside of the lamp? It appears to have some oxidization in it

I have the same problem. I tried cleaning the copper contacts with white vinegar, they look like new now, but the lamp still doesn't work.

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...

I have an 06 Dodge Charger. My rear passenger side turn signal isn't working. The bulb seems to be good because the tail light still works and it's the same bulb. What could be the problem here?


the turn signal and the brake light,, not the tail light section use the same filament, so be sure that the bulb is ok, have someone apply the brake,, if it goes on your bulb is fine and you have a different problem than the bulb , on the newer vehicles with the glass end on the bulb and the 3 wires ( sometimes 4 ) the wire gets smashed flat against the glass and doesn't make a good contact , remove the bulb and very gently pull the wire up away from the glass end, see if that works, if not, do the same thing to the socket end

2006 BEETLE JUST REPLACED BATTERY, BUT THERE IS A DRAW SOMEWHERE BECAUSE IT WONT START AFTER IT HAS SAT OVERNIGHT.


For a battery to go dead on you like that there must be something draining the battery while the vehicle is switched off. It could be something like a trunk light which is not switching off or a short across some circuit that does not show up on any light. The first and easiest test is to disconnect the battery negative cable whenever you park the vehicle overnight etc. and see if the battery still runs down.
As a more positive step and if this does not affect the alarm, disconnect the positive lead from the battery and wire a bulb like a tail light bulb, between the terminal and the removed lead. The bulb should light up. Make sure that everything on the vehicle is switched off, the bulb should still be lit. Remove and replace the fuses one by one until the bulb goes out. That is the circuit that is running your battery flat. Check all the components on that circuit until you get the light to stay out and your problem should be fixed.
Check your charging system. With the engine running at about 2000 rpm, a volt meter across the battery terminals should read around 14 to 14.5 volts and drop to about 13.8 volts with the engine at idle. If this does not happen, the charging system may be defective. Even with lights on the voltage should climb, but will drop lower at idle.

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...

mine has gone the same way after 18 months so its about to go ,back to its roots !

My myo xp headtorch has suddenly stopped working. As the bulb can't be replaced, how do I fix it?


Very strange. Mine just suddenly stopped working last night as well. I have changed the batteries, but it makes no difference.

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.

    Are Petzl climbing helmets ok to use @ OSHA worksite


    Hi,

    The Vertex Vent and Vertex Best are the only two of Petzl's range that are rated for commercial use. The rest are sport models..

    The link here is for their site..

    http://www.petzl.com/en/pro/helmets

    Any half decent outdoor/climbing shop will be able to sort you out. Don't be surprised though if shops don't stock the commercial range as therer's not a lot of turnover on it. A good store will be able to get in gear for you to try..
    Personally, I have come across a few people (tree surgeons and mountain rescue mostly) who will still choose the sport models for the lightness and less bulk but we always advise them not to.
    If you are in the EU then the ratings on Petzl's site will be correct but if you are in the US or AU then it would be worth checking the local regulations before purchase. I don't see it being a problem though, Petzl are globally accepted.
    Either way, it could be an insurance nightmare if there is an accident involving someone wearing gear that's not covered..

    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. :)

    Hard had


    Yes, but it's not an industrial hard hat.. And you would be in breach of all sorts of insurance regs if you wore it on a site.

    Petzl have two in their range that are rated for commercial use, The Vertex Best and the Vertex Vent.. See the link below for more info..

    It's not worth the risk for a few quid less..
