You've introduced two variables to your flashlight, and each needs to be tested independently. It's possible that one--or both--isn't working properly. It's equally possible that one or both of these replacement parts isn't perfectly meshing with the conductive areas of the maglite body, meaning that they're not completing the basic circuit needed to power the light. The best way to test your tailcap switch is either to try it with another maglite or test its continuity with a multi-tester. With the tester, you should be able to toggle between readings of infinite resistance (switch off, no circuit) and little or no resistance (switch turned on). If you're stuck at infinite resistance, there's a problem with the switch. You could test the LED insert by using test clips to touch power to the module to see whether it will light up. My guess is that the components are probably good, but that somewhere along the line, there's a break in the basic circuit. My leading suspect would be the connection from the LED module to the negative (flashlight body) side. It could be that the module is slightly out of round and it's simply not making contact. It could be that the finish of the maglite is acting as an insulator. However, I would recommend deferring this analysis until you've confirmed that each component works fine. Good luck!

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.

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.

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

My duracell crank light 3 in 1 is not working properly. I rotated crank handle for about a minute or 2 long,thinking that charging would be enough and led torch will light for few minutes during power cut but my light not even worked for 5mins it started blinking and led light decreased and after some time the total led light disappeared. what i need to do to retain its charging capacity and to get its initial efficiency as given during the time of purchase.


I found with my Duracell crank lights they periodically need a good charge to function well. On the side there is a 5v charger socket - suggest and 8-10 hr charge. There is also a USB with a switch between IN and OUT. With a suitable USB cable in the IN position, the light can be connected to a computer to recharge. Hope this helps.
