Question about Camping, Backpacking & Hiking
Unfortunately not, I've seen more and more of these coming back to the shop here with faults. Mostly they seem to be connection problems like yours.
Pity, MAG are excellent and have really tarnished their reputation with this LED gimmick. A lot of the customers who return their LED's to us take a traditional MAG as a replacement..

Take the battery cap off . Remove the spring and drop it on the batteries. Tighten the battery cap back on (this will require pliers ) . Forces contact inside and the light should come on .

Had the same frustrating problem, working in the dark and have the Maglite turn off with fresh batteries. Would bang the flashlight and it would work for a few seconds and then turn itself off again.
Take at look at the two solutions at the link below.
1. As mentioned in a previous post, is to clean the battery contact at the head of the Maglite..
2. Push out the contact fingers in the tail cap of the Maglite.
After I applied both, my Maglite is switching on and off without a hitch.
Best of luck!
