X6 switch help

Hey guys i need little help on my X6 host........its all built and working but does not work with the tailcap screwed all the way in ? but when i take the tailcap off and turn it to the side the lite comes on and when i keep doing that it switches through the modes

 

i checked to see if the tailcap is loose and its not

has to be getting ground since it does come on at the very last thread of the tailcap ??

i tried sanding the threads with VERY lite sand paper and still nothing any other ideas

I think taking a look at this thread about SF tailcaps may help you: RWS34 – Solarforce Switch problems – erratic when screwed down

I don’t really understand what you are saying though. The X6 uses anodized threads: anything other than fully tightened should be locked out. You seem to be saying that if you unscrew the tailcap almost all the way it works.

Still fine, still on a break. One day I’ll catch up with you folks! previous wight catchup Wink

Try flipping the battery tube end for end. Even though the threads are the same pitch at both ends it only works one way.

If you have a Convoy S2 there were some threads on BLF that said the caps are interchangeable

The Journal of Alternative Facts

"It is critical that there is a credible academic source for the growing and important discipline of Alternative Facts. This field of study will just keep winning, and we knew that all the best people would want to be on board. There is a real risk in the world today that people might be getting their information about science from actual scientists."
