Question about Solar Home

1 Answer

I just purchased Westinghouse solar walkway lights (the brigher version). They worked fine the first nigh. Tonight, one of them is blinking consistantly. I brought it inside and after 1 minute it started to work fine. I walked outside, after 15-20 seconds it was blinking again. Why? What is the fix?

We bought a solar light a Westinghouse item # 37136608W It had a least 7 hrs of direct sunlight for over 7 hrs.but still does not work, We think we had it on. is it possible that the off switch shuts off...

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.
A description is here
Waranty information is here
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.

We purchased Westek photo cells for our 60 watt outdoor lighting for dusk to dawn. We have them installed tonight with the plastic cover with the smallest center hole in it. They just keep going on and...

It sounds like you are getting feedback from the lights.
Timer has a photocell, and when it hets dark, the timer turns ON.
But the lights are causing photocell to think it's dawn, so timer turns OFF.
Moment later, photocell thinks it's dark, so lights turn ON again.
And your lights blink on-off.
Passing cars lights can cause timer to do same thing.

To test timer, put black tape over photoeye.
If lights still blink afterward, then timer is defective.

To solve problem, put obstruction between lights and photocell, or tun photocell toward dark area.

Most of the solar lights use a stadard 1.2 volt 850 mh nicad rechargable AA size battery and you can get them at your local Home Depot store. You also might try to clean the solar cell on the light they seem to get a film over them that stops some sun light from reaching the solar cell.

Put a small piece of black tape over half the sensor. This will make it more sensitive to light conditions.

6-pack solar LED landscape lights don't shed any light!

I am having the same problem, but am going to try putting in new rechargeable batteries. If you take the lights apart, you should find a rechargeable AA battery. I'm going to try it tonight and will let you know if it works.

Westinghouse LCM-19W4

I had the same problem with my two LCM-19W4 monitors. Both failed within two months of each other. Radio Shack stocks 220uF 35V capacitors that work fine for this. You have to pay $1.49 ea though.
