How to replace the lamp in a Mini Maglite


The Mini Maglite is a durable, compact flashlight. If your Mini Maglite stopped working, check or replace its two AA batteries first, and if that doesn't fix it, you'll probably need to replace the lamp. You can order replacement lamps in packs of two online, or you may be able to find them locally in a hardware store.

To replace the lamp in a Mini Maglite:

1. Unscrew the bottom of the flashlight. (Hold the flashlight with the head facing down so that the batteries don't fall out.)
2. Remove the batteries.
3. Unscrew the flashlight head from the barrel.
4. The lamp is mounted into the flashlight on two prongs; gently pull up on the lamp to remove it.
5. Install the new lamp by lining the prongs up with the two holes and slowly inserting it fully.
6. Screw the flashlight head back on.
7. Reinsert the batteries.
8. Screw the base back on.

When you've finished, turn the flashlight on (by turning the lens cover or the head counter-clockwise) to verify that the new lamp works. If the light doesn't come on, take the flashlight apart again and check to make sure the lamp is installed correctly and fully. Since the lamps come in packs of two, if you can't get the first lamp to work, try the second lamp in the pack. If that lamp doesn't work either, check your batteries and make sure the lens cover and head are both screwed on all the way.

I could not unscrew the bottom part to change the battery. Should I use unscrew it by anti clockwise or clockwise only. I even spray WD40 beforehand.


Counter clockwise to get bottom cap off. They're usually pretty tight because cap is steel and tube is aluminum. Grab tube with pliers and try turning cap

Keeps turning itself off when adjusting beam


It sounds like the spring in the tail cap may be depressed which would cause intermittent contact with the negative end of the Batt. Shake the flashlight vigorously, you should NOT hear ANY noise. If you DO, take the end cap off and pull on the spring, you are trying to stretch it out a bit, replace the cap and shake it again. Go through these steps until it is QUIET when you shake it.
Also make sure there's NO CORROSION at the Positive and Negative ends of the contacts.
Maglites are pretty user friendly and the best light money can buy. I have the rechargeable model which I carried for 21 years during my tour in law enforcement.
Anyway, if it still refuses to work properly, go to; www.maglite.com they are based in California. They will help you get it going. Good luck. :)

Mini Maglite not working


You could have dirty contacts if the batteries were in for a long time and you never used it. The contacts are: (1) the tip of the spring and (2) where the positive end of the battery touches way inside the flashlight. You can try and clean them with alcohol. If you think it might be the bulb, try the spare. There is a spare bulb under the spring you see at the base of the flashlight when you install the batteries, you have to pull the spring out and then snap it back in after you get the bulb out. And yes, positive end goes in first in the Maglite. Hope this helps.

Frozen tail cap


Sprayed penetrating oil all the way around the end cap at seal area. Layed flashlight on it's side on a plastic block & tapped on housing just below the end cap with composite mallet while rotating. Then used aluminum jaws in a vise to hold housing while turning end cap with large pliers.
Once cap is off, clean corrosion with automotive battery cleaner & soak inside with more penetrating oil to remove batteries.

My flashlight wont turn of on Pantech c3 so phone wont work.


it isn't a flashlight. it's the flash for the camera. Try opening the camera and going into the settings and turning off the "Flash" or "light" or whatever these phones call them.
