Suggested Questions And Answer :


Petzl Tikka switch is not working properly. Light not steady.


Hi,Would you describe the light as flickering and fading perhaps? Are you using rechargable or Lithium batteries?Here's an excerpt from a Petzl alert put out a couple of years ago. It may shed some light on your problem..LED light sources are susceptible to being damaged by the use of lithium batteries due to the different characteristics of lithium batteries in discharge. This has meant that some people have had problems with their headtorches failing when using such batteries... Petzl have reported this problem and other manufacturers are expected to follow suit. However this does not affect all head torches... There are problems being reported over the LED lamps in certain headtorches when used with lithium batteries. Incandescent bulbs will also suffer a reduced burn-time when used with lithium batteries although this is less severe. This is because the lithium batteries have a higher output during discharge. The benefits of a lithium battery are the increased burn time, especially at low temperatures over the traditional alkaline batery. LR6 or AA and LR03 or AAA are the two size of battery litkely to be used in a headlamp. Petzl are one of the few manufacturers to advise on this at the moment. Other manufacturers products will also be affected. The following Petzl headlamps should not be used with lithium batteries: TIKKA / ZIPKA range: TIKKINA / TIKKA / ZIPKA / TACTIKKA / TIKKA PLUS / ZIPKA PLUS / TACTIKKA PLUS / TIKKA XP / TACTIKKA XP / TIKKA XP ATEX / TIKKA XP HAZLOC. MYO range: MYOLITE 3 / MYO 3 noir / MYO XP. DUO range: DUO LED 5. SAXO AQUA. MYOBELT 3 DUO LED 3.

Petzl tikka plus torch repair


I understood that fixya was free from reading the word free all over the place. I wasted my time filling in the form to find out it was not free, but only 7 days free trial but you needed credit card details before. I will not be the first to write this and am tired of being told things are free when they are not. Do not mislead people.

Petzl Tikka Plus Headlamp has a short and is eating batteries


There's really not much that's serviceable in these things. Try cleaning all the terminals again but this time use VINEGAR instead of alcohol which does not neutralize the corrosion as vinegar does. Just dip a q-tip in the vinegar and swab it on the terminals, then with a dry one, swab up the excess. Then install all NEW batteries, do not mix old ones with new ones as the new ones cannot make the old ones work any better than they are used. If they still don't work, welome to the world of cheap products that are intended to be tossed when they quit functioning. Good luck. :)

I can't get my Petzl Micro to light up. I have tried new batteries and a new bulb but it still isn't working. What is the best way to clean the copper on the inside of the lamp? It appears to have some oxidization in it


I have the same problem. I tried cleaning the copper contacts with white vinegar, they look like new now, but the lamp still doesn't work.

I simply need to know what the 3 colored LEDs on the handle represent. There is a red one, an orange(yellow) one, and a green one. I lost the manual and need to know when the battery is fully charged. It seems the green one comes on only after it has been plugged into the charger for a while, but then what? How many hours do I leave it on the charger to get the battery fully charged but not over charged? By the way, if you are looking for the DMU 12-3 battery (12 volt 3 AH) I got one from BATTERYSPEC.COM...$16.50 plus $10 shipping.


Red, Yellow, Green are the battery level indicators, Red being the lowest like a fuel gauge. If the green comes on right away after plugging in the charger then it must not indicate the charge cycle. If its a 3Ah battery whats the charger output amperage? Then you could just do the math to figure out how long it would take to charge that battery to full with the output. Otherwise it shouldn't hurt it to leave it plugged in overnight or at least a few hours to charge it.

Maglite LED. Light switch is intermittent. Have had the same issue with my 8 month old 2AA LED Maglite, don't have receipt and have tried finding a solution to get it fixed again. Lost my temper with it on a job on Friday night and smacked it into a flight case several times (was doing some urgent troubleshooting midway through the show) which seemed to fix it temporarily, however started playing up again Saturday night. The next solution was ebay and getting a new one, and this time I will be keeping the receipt and paperwork. I hope we have just been unlucky as there doesn't seem to be many people with the same issue.


Hi,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..
