You will have to take it apart and replace the battery pack. They use the same as a portable house phone of a remote. Get lithium rechargeable.

Can't get bushnell trail camera 8mp to come on

Use lithium (non-rechargeable) high energy batteries for best results. This is clearly a power supply problem. If it doesn't work, send it back for replacement. If the batteries are self-contained, ensure they are fully charged using the charger supplied with the camera. Remember, rechargeable batteries are only good for a maximum of two years. Cameras, in general, do not work well with rechargeable batteries as the voltage is less, i.e.; 1.25 volts vs. 1.5 volts per AAA/AA/C or D size battery.

How to re-wire the flashlight Makita BML185

You have a battery a globe and a switch. It really only matters matter if you keep the circuit board(CB). Here's how mine was wired.

Red - Battery pos to switch to bottom of CB (BT+)
Red - top of CB (BU+) to pos contact pivot
Black - neg contact pivot to top of CB (BU-)
Black - bottom to CB (BT-) to battery neg

Or you could just bypass the CB altogether, wire the black to the black, and the red to the red. done.

How to get the head off the makita Ml140 14.4 volt flashlight?

I'll assume it is the same as my similar 18v makita. There would be spring loaded posts that extend out of the main body into the torch head. these act as both contacts and axles for the rotation.
Remove the lens cover, the reflector, the bulb, and the bulb holder.

There should be a metal strip or wire going down the side to where the posts I mention enter. Shine a light down to see. once everything is out of the way, you can slide a narrow spoon handle (or knife or anything that fits) down the gap to push back the spring loaded posts. There may be channels in the plastic to help with this.

once you've got the post down, pull off the head.

I solved my flickering, by bypassing the circuit board, as all a torch need is a battery, a switch, and a bulb rated to match the battery (check your bulb to be sure)

here is a link to my previous solution, (with photos)

When hooked up to charger red light blinks. Light will not come on without charger hooked to it.

  • Hi, i can help.
  • When the lights just blink like that on the charger it is saying that the battery is bad and will no longer take a charge.
  • These flashlight are real impressive but there have also been reports of the charging unit failing.
  • Make sure to clean the contacts well with rubbing alcohol.
  • I had one time that was a real pain if it was not set just perfect on the charger.
  • So there are a couple things to try but I think you just need to get a new set of rechargeable. Lithium batteries like the ones this flashlight uses can't be overcharged or over discharged of they malfunction.
  • CR123A Lithium rechargeables are cheap these days. spring on a new pair and you should be fine.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

How do i replace the bulb

Julio, the black bezel will unscrew from the main housing. The bulb is either a screw-in or friction fit (pushes in) type. Most hardware stores will carry a replacement bulb that works for this flashlight. Be sure to take the burned out bulb with you to match it correctly.

Hope this helps.
