HELP-I just bought this and cannot get ti to work. My outside display has always been incandescents and I love the light keeper pro. That has helped countless times. As I am slowly going to LED, i bought some LED's from ACE hardware after Christmas and placed them to see how they will look next year. I have the mini lights 100 red set. After a few days, in 2 separate strands, half of the lights stopped working. I checked the wires to make sure nothing was loose and they weren't. So, I bought the led keeper. When I plug the lights into the yellow plug, nothing goes on, even the ones that work. The red light powers on the tester but when testing the wires on either side, nothing happens. What am I doing wrong? Thank you.
I picked one up years ago and it has saved me so many strings, the first one I got at Ace hardware, and I picked another one up this year for sale after Christmas for about 6 dollars at Home Depot, I have consumer grade LED strings that are now going on over 15 years of use because I can fix the fault in the string!
I've got LED C6 lights and I've watched this video a thousand times trying to fix them. When I do the part of pinching the wire with the machine nothing lights up at all. But there is a section 40ish lights in the middle that won't come on, lights work on either side. I dont know what I'm doing wrong. Any thoughts?
Hey, I would actually like if you could show us how to work on and fix issues with the “Orchestra of lights” light set. I have some strands that all went out except for only 2 bulbs that still worked. I don’t know if this tool would work for that. I usually find the lights at Lowe’s but they are hard to come by.
Help Charile!! I am trying to repair my nativity set. The star is out. I have no idea what I am doing!! I was trying to follow the instructions and only one small section of lights lit...and I couldn't get them to light again. If you can help that would be amazing!!
Hey there: need some help PLS! We just got the Keeper, and I am trying to test strings of lights. The problem is that when I plug the lights into the LED Keeper, and go to test a bad or good bulb section, none of the lights actually come on, at all. They only light back up, when plugged into an outlet direct. Please assist ASAP! Very Much Appreciated for any help here!
Well, I fixed mine, I had to add one of those green little plastic box things and cut the wires to put in it. Everything worked after that and replacing a couple dead bulbs. However, after about a week or two of the lights working perfectly.... most of the lights went out again. All of them were out to the point where I had installed the little green box thing. When I pushed in the neutral wire in the box, the lights went back on again. So I noticed that metal piece inside that looks like a razor blade cut around the insulation on the neutral wire. I trimmed it back again and tried once more so that the neutral wire wasn't exposed. Lights worked once again. 10 min. later... they went back out. I don't know what to do now about that neutral wire that keeps getting cut and exposed by that metal razor piece inside the green plastic thing. That is what the problem is.
I have never had so much trouble with Christmas lights! The LED lights don’t want to cooperate. I can’t get the LED keeper to work for nothing. I even reversed the “pin” that pricks the wire. The only thing I can get to work is the bulb tester. For lights that I thought would last a long time, well, I think the others are less a pain.
Hi , I have a stand of led multi function c9 . All the blue bulbs started to go dim and a few actually were not working. So I went out and bought some blue 3mm led diodes to replace the diodes and did a few and it was fine so I then proceeded to take out the remaining 18 blue bulbs and swapped them out. After doing that plugged the set in and all the blue bulbs are dim now .what could have caused that ?
Great video,my problem is that I have a middle section out ,but both ends light up.the section that is out the bulbs at each end have 3 wires going in,so testing there is always a dim light.l ended up checking each build separately,fixed 2 but still not lighting up.any help would be great.
Thank you for the information.
I have four long strands I need to troubleshoot.
I have plenty of replacement bulbs. I have one strand that some jackass ruined. The wire was cut and the last socket was cut completely off.
I kept the ruined strand for replacement bulbs.
Just ordered this tool on amazon in 🇨🇦. Went to put the lights up today and about 95% of our lights are like this 😭. Curious if the cut through the plastic to test the bulb will cause any further damage with ice and snow. Should we put electrical tape around it?
I am failing here. Mine has the 3 wires. Half the strand is out. I clipped the last bulb that was lit. I tested midway on the strand that was out and nothing lit up. I tested closer to the other end and it lit up... so I worked my way in from the other end of the strand that was out. It started to get hit or miss. At one point I tested a bulb and like, 5 lit up and the rest on either side were out.
Fantastic! Thanks for the info. Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot a RGBW Christmas Tree where all White are working on tree but some parts of tree where RGB part of light isn't working? So bulbs are getting power but for some reason RGB isn't but W part of bulb is. Any ideas?
Just picked one up at Home Depot. Don't trust the battery that comes installed when you get it. I was ready to return it after having zero luck testing sections. It would test individual LEDs and fuses but would not light sections I knew worked. I swapped out the battery and then had no issues. Fixed a string of 300 lights in less than 5 minutes.
