Torch Problem

Post by mick.c » 28 Nov 2017, 21:43

Evening all...well was going to go out this evening for a quick look about until I noticed my 3 mode T20 is now a single mode T20...and stuck on low mode, I haven't dropped or banged it (that I Know of) now could it be the end cap where you slightly press to change modes or is it the pill it's self, its a Carls Customz zoomable....and I don't know how to get the head off to get to the pill...any help would be appreciated....cheers

Have a look at this video but skip to about 7.53 it shows you how they come apart. I think circlip pliers would be a better tool for the job than what he uses in the video.

I use needle nose pliers to remove the lens retaining ring.

I'm beginning to think the Chinese three mode drivers are defaulting to single low or mid power. Had a couple of issues with this.
