I experinced the exact same problem and found after stripping it down that the red and black 1mm cables inside the 6mm black outer sleeve close to the actual headlamp are split in several places and the copper core has broken. I attempted a repair but found more breaks further towards the battery compartment. This could be a design fault as the cable seems to fail under normal use.

2 year old, well maintained Myo XP that has never been submerged or been seriously soaked. Yesterday, I turned it on and 1 second later it went out. Batteries are good. Wiring solid. No battery level display LED either. Nothing works. Bulb shouldn't just "blow" (it is an LED...) Switch?


Its a bit late now i know ; although somebody may get some use out of the information 'that' the 'myo xp' has a manufacturers warranty of 36 months (3 years), mine has gone the same way after 18 months so its about to go ,back to its roots !
