Dirt/corrosion on the electrical contacts that the batteries touch maybe ?

All the contacts look good. The lights not that old. It was working great before I changed out the batteries.

Yes, I was thinking the same thing....

Did you be sure you matched up the battery type exactly ?
Some devices are sensitive to alkaline vs. mercury vs lithium batteries.... Voltage might be the same but the amps supplied could be different.

You can try popping the cap off and taking the batteries out and putting them back in again, the light system from Sure-loc is awesome maybe something was out of alignment when you replaced the batteries

I have 3 of these and I am very happy with the preformance



just a thought.

I'll try taking it apart again. Maybe the cover is not tight enough.

Wel, took it apart and tried to get it a little tighter, Seems to be fine. We'll see when the shooting starts. It seemed the vibration from the shot is what would turn it off.
