My Petzl headlamp just quit. Even with 3 new AA alkaline batteries, it doesn't work. Is it kaput? (About 5 year old).

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. :)

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 !

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.

I have a 6-7 year old Rayovac Workhorse Lantern- I bought 2 new 6 volt batteries and 2 new tube bulbs for it but it still doesn't work. How and where should I take it to be checked?


The odds that both bulbs went out at the same time is pretty low, actually. It's more likely that there's corrosion in the on-off switch or that an internal wire may have come loose. It's also possible--and I've made this mistake myself--that one of the 6-volt batteries has been put in backwards so that the polarity is not properly aligned for both batteries.With all that said, here are a few simple tests you can do.1. Check the batteries. If you have a battery tester, are both batteries good? If so, check they are properly installed and making good contact with their terminals.2. Pull the bulbs out and use a voltmeter to check that you have voltage going to each bulb tube. This basically means switching the light on and touching each of the terminals where the bulb(s) would clip in. You should see a strong voltage reading on one or both tubes-I believe that this light is designed to keep working, even if one of the bulbs is burned out.3. If you don't get a reading from the bulb terminals, the on-off switch or wiring leading to is is the prime suspect. You may have to disassemble the light housing to get into that, which may not be particularly easy. At this point, you might want to call Rayovac customer service and see what they might do for you under their alleged lifetime warranty for flashlights. You may be able to send it in (holding onto the bulbs for yourself) and get a free replacement.Good luck!

LED Flashlight Battery Drain Problem


This particular flashlight uses a microchip that consumes the power of the batteries, whether in use or not. Loosen the case to where the batteries go in, so there is no contact with polarity. Or just take the batteries out completely and replace them for actual use. GGBMDB
