My northstar lantern lites then goes out within 20 to30 seconds. Is it the generator? and if so what # generator do I need? The lantern is about 8 years old and used once or twice a year.


If the problem is that it loses pressure quickly (that is, you have to pump it up again and then it will light briefly), the problem is most likely the cap. It has a rubber gasket underneath that has probably dried out and isn't giving you a good seal. These caps are common replacement items, all the same size, available at Walmart, Kmart, etc. Another likely culprit is old fuel. Many years ago (like 30) the fuel lasted nearly forever. But sometime since then, the fuel has been reformulated making it work better in the short term, but having a limited shelf-life. If your fuel is more than a year or two old, try some new fuel.

Streamlight stinger LED 75711 will not turn all the way off. a very dim light stays on constantly


I think you are correct. Sounds like the switch.

I light my lamp and after an hour or so it slowly fades and go out i then have to let it cool before lighting again i hav just tried to light it and it starts but won't get bright then goes out as if it is being starved with fuel


I think the problem is that you are losing compression. kinda like a air pump, if you pump it up too much when you first buy it you stand te risk of blowing a seal.

I bought a vector 20 million power series sport/spot light and based my purchase on reviewsand company reputation. After receiving the light in the mail I followed the instructions charging it for the proper length of time then tried the light at night in a wooded area near my home. First impressions were anything but favorable, the light was poorly designed ergonomicallythe on-off switches were positioned to put it bluntly in a very stupid place making it awkward to turn off and on. I was ok with the lights size and weight it was just the way it was designed that made its size and weight a detriment to ease of use. Next after a several day full and complete charge I put the light in the trunk of my car to be ready for use on a weekend camping trip. When we arrived at the campsite and began setting up I got the vector out with high expectation of it lighting up my area so I could set up my tent so I set it up turned it on and at first thought wow this is great adjusted the stand started setting up camp when the brand new VECTOR 20 million candle power light slowly started to dim out all to my chagrin of course. within minutes it was dead as a doornail. Almost a HUNDRED dollars for a flashlight and my old trusty 1 million candle power DORCEY spotlight purchased from Harbor Freight that fortunately was in the trunk of my car came to the rescue.A cheap 10 dollar spotlight not only was brighter but it lasted the entire time it took to set up camp. After the weekend was over and I was back at home I emailed the vector company and to be honest was treated with a cross between sarcasism and indifference when I expressed my concerns. I was more than a little surprised and caught completely off guard so much so I allowed myself to be dismissed when I asked if I could trade in y brand new spotlight on one of equal or the one I was interested in trading on was a fair bit more expensive. My less than polite or helpful customer service represenative told me that they do not do that and in so much words he made it clear that I was stuck with the one I have and that it is clearly written in the ad that it is a large floodlight,. I gave up figured I had been stuck with the floodlight and swallowed my pride after writing a less than favorable review on the floodlight. I just had to write again I just took the light out to look at a car I had trouble with today turned it on and thought hey this is working ok but within 15 minutes the light dimmed very quickly till it was stone dead and I could not see anything. So out of sheer frustration I am writing this letter to express my feelings once more. Again I broke out my 10 dollar dorcey floodlight that had been hanging on a hook not plugged in and charging just hanging took it outside and it not only lit up my car but lasted the entire time and was still going strong when I finished brought it in hung it up and put the charger on it. So after this long winded explanation about one of your products it comes down to "I WOULD NEVER AGAIN BUY ANY VECTOR PRODUCTS NOR RECOMMEND THEM TO ANYONE!" I am stuck with this lemon I am trying to decide what the best job could be for this floodlight and all I could think of is that it would work well as a corner weight on the tarpaulin that I have covering my car. Sincerely, James R. Clement. A dissatisfied customer .


This light has'nt really like others much that can go wrong. I'm sorry to hear you had so many problems. I have this light and recieved it second hand, without an owners manual. I went to VectorMfg.com which redirected me to Black & Deckers web site. I there downloaded an owners manual. If I would'nt have done that I may have also posted many of the questions reguarding this light. There are many inportant things to know before use and continued use. The bulb and battery are replacable. Hope this helps! Matthew

My coleman powerhouse dual fuel lantern brightens and dims continuously. could this be the generator acting up?


Hi bradley m925... Try using the cleaner for the generator, it is a twist type crank, make a few turns on it if you have it. If not then your right, replace the generator as it is faulty. Please take time to rate me Coleman Generators website...http://www.summitcampinggear.com/lage.html

My mom purchased this Jeep lantern and does not have the manual that came with it. I don't know how to get the light to stay on. She uses this to get across the street to get her mail. She is an 82 ye


Hi, I'm having a similar issue with my jeep lantern as well. It's actually a really nice lantern, however, when I plug it in with the power cord, it seems like it is A LOT brighter than when it's just running on batteries alone. When using the turn button, it does get brighter and dimmer, just not to the extent I would like it to be as I use the lantern at night as well to do things such as checking the mail and going to my vehicle. I feel much safer with the light at night, but obviously can't keep it plugged in when walking around my property. It just is not as bright running on just the batteries. I'm not sure if there is a mechanical error with the product, but I've never noticed the difference between the brightness until recently. I changed the batteries and it just didn't make a difference. Just wanting to get some advice to see what I could do to try and make the light brighter. Maybe it has to do with the new batteries I bought, however, they are GREAT batteries I purchased and I don't think that is the issue. Some suggestions would be helpful. :)
