Question about Garden
Posted by Anonymous on
For first time use solar light needs to charge in full sunlight for 8-12 hours with the switch in the "ON" position to allow the rechargeable battery to reach maximum capacity.
There is also a protective film on the solar panel that needs to be removed.
After doing that, fully charging the battery with the switch in the "ON" position, then if the light does not turn on, remove the 4 screws from the solar cell assembly, remove the battery, wipe both ends and reinstall battery. Make sure the battery is making secure contact with the terminals. I had a new one and the battery was loose inside, making the light go on and off. I reseated the battery and all is well.
However you should not have to replace the battery or the unit, it should still be under warranty if you just bought it. Westinghouse guarantees this unit for one year.

I would counsel you to just take the unit back for exchange or refund, as the warranty has an exclusion clause and one of the exclusions is if the unit has been opened. Opening the unit might invalidate the warranty.
