Question about Fun Rise Tonka Flashlight Force Tow Truck

Open Question

Hi - My boys love their Tonka Flashlight force trucks. One of the flashlights stopped working, though. After changing the batteries (2 sets, just in case there was a bad battery, and the batteries work in other toys) it still is not working. So I'm assuming it neads a new bulb. But I can't figure out how to get to the bulb to change it! Any suggestions? It is the red fire rescue truck. thanks!

SOURCE: lost Tonka part

I can't tell you how to get a replacement part (Funrise was SUPREMELY unhelpful for me, too), but we devised a solution for our broken truck.....cut a black hair elastic and thread it through the two holes of the part that would hold the fork. Tie a knot so that it sits inside the little cavity inside that part. Your kiddo can then attach the garbage can to the lifting mechanism by using the elastic--works almost as well as the fork. Hope this helps!

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!

How to replace the lamp in a Mini Maglite


The Mini Maglite is a durable, compact flashlight. If your Mini Maglite stopped working, check or replace its two AA batteries first, and if that doesn't fix it, you'll probably need to replace the lamp. You can order replacement lamps in packs of two online, or you may be able to find them locally in a hardware store.

To replace the lamp in a Mini Maglite:

1. Unscrew the bottom of the flashlight. (Hold the flashlight with the head facing down so that the batteries don't fall out.)
2. Remove the batteries.
3. Unscrew the flashlight head from the barrel.
4. The lamp is mounted into the flashlight on two prongs; gently pull up on the lamp to remove it.
5. Install the new lamp by lining the prongs up with the two holes and slowly inserting it fully.
6. Screw the flashlight head back on.
7. Reinsert the batteries.
8. Screw the base back on.

When you've finished, turn the flashlight on (by turning the lens cover or the head counter-clockwise) to verify that the new lamp works. If the light doesn't come on, take the flashlight apart again and check to make sure the lamp is installed correctly and fully. Since the lamps come in packs of two, if you can't get the first lamp to work, try the second lamp in the pack. If that lamp doesn't work either, check your batteries and make sure the lens cover and head are both screwed on all the way.

Our flashlight stop working even with a brand new battery


The bulb may be blown. If the bulb is ok then you may have a broken wire, corroded connections or a bad switch.

My flashlight just stopped working. when placed on charger, the green charged light appears. How do I know if its a battery or bulb problem?


it's telling you the battery is fully charged so suspect that either the battery is dead or the bulb is burnt out. Get a test meter and test for voltage at the battery. If yes, then the bulb is burnt. If no voltage then obviously the battery is bad

I cant open the tonka flashlight force fire truck to put in a new bulb


Take out batteries and undo the two screws in the battery compartment by about two full turns.
Remove the two screws in the underside between the front wheels.
Use a thin blade and slide it in to recess at top of lens between silver trim. Prise out lens top carefully as there is a retaining flange on the lens and you don't want to break it.
Rotate top of lens forward and it levers out of the bumper.
Its a screw in bulb.
Reverse steps to close up.

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!

Makita ML902 Flashlight how to open case housing to repair


Makita ML902 - great flashlight. but I wanted to upgrade the lamp to LED, and found that the POLARITY was wrong . so i HAD to open the dern thang. the 'special tool' and 'keep in-house' conspiracy had me 'fuming' ... turns out if one were to mark the EXACT spot that the pivot occurs with a felt pen, by drilling a small (sized) hole on each side, (stop as soon as the bit is thru! the shiney material that you stop at are lamp straps) then pressing 2 stiff objects from both sides, the head pops off ! one more screw is uncovered, making it an even 4 screws holding it all together. When i opened the case up, one wire wasn't even soldered to the switch ! aargh. so - swapped polarity, re-soldered the connections, add a bit of fresh solder, re-assemble, voila! I love the 9 volt cases, upgrading everything to 12v and 16v lithium 18650 cells. these old Makita ensembles are great! saw, drill, angle drill, light...

Unless the bulb is burned out or you are putting the batteries in wrong there is not much that can go wrong with a flashlight.

Frozen tail cap


Sprayed penetrating oil all the way around the end cap at seal area. Layed flashlight on it's side on a plastic block & tapped on housing just below the end cap with composite mallet while rotating. Then used aluminum jaws in a vise to hold housing while turning end cap with large pliers.
Once cap is off, clean corrosion with automotive battery cleaner & soak inside with more penetrating oil to remove batteries.
