The pill may have worked loose if that coincides with a flat top cell that may not be making a good contact because some are shorter than others.

Bear in mind it has a reverse thread - so you 'do it up' to undo it.

Thanks Dave didn't realise it was left hand thread been using torchy protected cell batteries seems like a loose connection if you tap it it comes on bit of a pain
