I guess by posting it here on BLF you are asking for help getting it to work again? We do know a thing or 2 about that light, what happened? Smile

Sorry to hear your BLF A6 has stopped working.

There is a BLF A6 FET+7135 Light Troubleshooting and Mod thread that may be of some help. It's a long thread but contains some great information.

Triage – Have you checked if the retaining rings were tightened?

Take the light apart in: the head combo – the tube – the tail.
There are retaining rings in the head combo and in the tail.
These are to be fastened (quite firm) in the clock-wise direction.
No tools? Check this METHOD Works as least as good as buying a special pair of pliers.

Retaining rings are tightened? Next quick check.
Screw the tube back into the head combo and put it on the table, head combo down.
Put a battery in the tube, with the plus side down, in the direction of the head combo.
Take some electrical wire and make contact between the backside of the battery and a bare part of the tube.
If it does not light up, it is probably a driver issue, you should ask smarter persons to help you Wink

If it does light up, screw the tail back on and look if this time you can switch the light on and off.
If you can, problem is solved. If not, try one more time to fasten the retaining ring in the tail cap.
If after that, you still can’t switch the light on and off, the switch itself might be kaputt.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

That’s BLF at work for you. Great tips, Henk4U2! And glad to see you’re up and running again with your BLF A6, nonorobo.

Btw, what’s a NoNo Robo?
