I have the 3-LED Head Lamp, When I received the item I checked the packaging and it had never been opened. The battery holder was in back words I had a lot of trouble getting it out, but perseverance I finally got it open. I then installed 3 new batteries and no light. I could not get it working, any ideas as to what to do next. It looks like one of the battery contacts is missing spring on the bottom plastic on the top under one of the external contacts.

Suggested Questions And Answer :


How do I remove the battery?


This is not intended to be a user replaceable battery, although I have found a replacement battery on-line.so that means that SOME people have replaced them. the cost is $9 +s&h. I don't think most camping outfitters would be able to help you with it, But it would be worth a try. My suggestion would be (if you have one in your area) take it to a Batteries Plus store. They are quite good at replacing batteries that are NOT meant for user replacement. Best of luck to you.

I bought 2 norlite 8-nswat cree xr-e tactical lights. One never worked and the other one works occasionally. I tried switching parts around but could never get the silver one to work. Now neither one works. Switches work, batteries are new.


This product comes with a lifetime warranty. If you contact the Hoffco Brands Customer Service team they will gladly replace both for free!http://www.hoffcobrands.com/contact_us.asp

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 have a Garrity LED tuflight flashlight with 3 AAA batteries. I recently put new batteries in (the others were weak but not dead). Now I can't get it to work. I am not sure if I am not loading it all right. The batteries are in the battery case correctly but I don't know the order of the items. Battery case and then a little round thing with a spring on one side & metal on the other side. Thanks in advance.


You should load the spring/metal piece in first with the spring facing out. then the batteries.

Repair for Innova GT 3 led, 3 AA battery flashlight.


Before doing serious damage, check for a poor ground to the case. I have worked on a couple of these and some of the manufacturers seem to believe a solder connection to an anodized aluminum case is going to work. Use a tool with a sharp point to scratch through the anodized layer to expose a clean metal ground. You may have to repeat this from time to time as the light fails.

Makita ML 140 torch. Old battery would not hold a charge as it was very old. Torch works well with a new Makita PA14 battery. But the handle gets quite hot and I need to dismantle it to find the problem. One would not expect heat from the handle but rather from the head. I have undone the screws but the swivel part also has to be removed for access. What is correct procedure? I am radio technician Thanks, Dave B.


Remove the lens, and bulb holder. look down into the cavity, and you will be able to see the spring loaded pivots. Find sonething narrow to push them in with, so that you can remove the head. here is my fix (with photos) for the 18v version

How do I get swelled and leaking battery's out? of my 4 D cell mag light, the one on the end came out but the next one is stuck. I tried a few drop of vinegar to neutralze and thin the alkalie goo, slamming downward on 2 mouse pads & 2 place mats for protection, no luck.


I found some info on this site...http://cr4.globalspec.com/thread/14899/Leaking-battery-stuck-in-Mag-Lite#comment150608 "Sadly, when a dry cell leaks, the leaking chemicals react with the torch casing, as you have noted. With all Maglite torches I have ever seen, you can remove both ends of the cylinder which encloses the batteries. In this situation, get a broom handle or wooden dowel, just a bit smaller than the torch battery diameter, and after soaking the cylinder/switch assembly cylinder in hot water (boiling if you can) for an hour or two, give that inserted dowel a few taps with a large hammer or mallet. Normally the leaking battery comes out easily, providing you let it soak in hot water long enough to soften the corrosion products. Once you have gotten out that battery, leave cylinder soaking overnight, and use an old toothbrush to remove the last of the oxide etc , and allow to dry thoroughly. As a tip for next time - to save you all this bother: Oil or grease the inside of the torch cylinder, and re-coat with oil (silicone grease is best), each time you replace batteries....."hope this helps you.
