简介

圣诞灯有问题吗?用这篇指南解决问题吧!

进行任何步骤前,请确保灯已经从电源插座拔掉了。

常见错误:

  1. 烧保险
  2. 有缺陷的灯泡
  3. 腐蚀的灯座
  4. 坏掉的灯座或电线
  1. 烧保险是在圣诞灯出问题里面占比重最多的——特别是一整条灯都不工作。好消息!保险丝可以简易替换掉! 手上拿着插座,把保险丝贮存门以上面标注打开的方向滑动。
    • 烧保险是在圣诞灯出问题里面占比重最多的——特别是一整条灯都不工作。好消息!保险丝可以简易替换掉!

    • 手上拿着插座,把保险丝贮存门以上面标注打开的方向滑动。

    • 移除两个保险丝,在一个亮的背景(比如天空)欣赏他们。如果保险丝是好的,你应该可以看见中间的连接两头的导线没有断。

    • 用新的保险丝替换坏掉的。

    What if the socket I am trying to cut out has 3 wires: 2 as shown and one slightly to the side in the same socket? Help please

    Christmas lights are the most frustrating thing in the world...if they don't work...don't waste your time, just go get new lights!

    sidrthomas - 回复

    this is just a bad idea all around. first, removing a series socket won't fix the problem, second, if you short the socket you change the voltage drop which the strand works off of. stay away from this.

    I bought an artificial tree last year for Christmas that camevwith several strands of lights already on it. This year one strand will not work after replacing 40 lights in the one strand! Finally decided to cut the strand out since it was at the bottom of the 9’ tree & buy a new strand. Pain in the ass as it was twisted so tightly & knotted in many places it was easier to cut it out than unwrap it. On another strand I found 1 light that just keeps burning out bulb the second I replace it. Because it’s not working, allvtge bulbs in that line are not working now either. I think I will try cutting off just the 1 bad socket, hoping the bypass will light up the rest of the strand. It’s too much work to unravel this strand so I think it’s worth a shot!

  6. 拨开包裹住两根电线的绝缘层2厘米 将两根电线绞在一起并插入扭绞线连接器中。转动连接器直到你认为其已经绞紧了,然后你就可以将其放置且不用拔下来。
    • 拨开包裹住两根电线的绝缘层2厘米

    • 将两根电线绞在一起并插入扭绞线连接器中。转动连接器直到你认为其已经绞紧了,然后你就可以将其放置且不用拔下来。

    • 测试灯是否修好且确保插座固定好后,将硅胶密封剂(或蜡)滴入连接器中确保连接器内部隔绝潮湿环境且阻止电线被腐蚀。

    Please do not follow this step, it is very wrong, you must put a load in place of the defective socket, the bulb you are by passing creates a load to drop the voltage 2.5v (assuming this is a 50/100 bulb strand), so removing it will increase the voltage to every other bulb above there rated voltage.

Good article, but like almost every other instructional topic on fixing busted Christmas Lights there are no instructions on how to actually get those little darn fuses replaced. What I mean is its easy enough to get the male electric cord plug compartment door open and the old fuses out, but getting the new Christmas light fuses to fit into the slots in many cords I've had is d@m near impossible. I have searched high and low throughout the internet and never found a video or article or any other webpage reference to issues getting the replacement fuses to properly seat into the fuse compartment slots. If someone could write about this subject and provide solid instruction on the best tools and methods to get those pesky little fuses to fit into the slots it would be a gem of a resource for those that do not want to throw strings of christmas lights away simply because the new fuses are so difficult to get to fit into the fuse slots in the electrical plug of the christmas light string.

I use paper clips to pry on one end and change them like batteries

Autumn Ruby -

My preferred tool is a small flathead screwdriver, such an eyeglass screwdriver. Use the flathead to push open the fuse panel in the plug, being mindful to hold the plug in a way that you won’t be injured if the screwdriver slips. That means holding the plug behind where you’re applying pressure with the screwdriver, and always pushing away from yourself rather than toward yourself. Holding the plug in a vise or with pliers also protects your hands.

Then pry up the fuse from the end, like you’re using a crowbar. Never apply pressure to the glass part of a fuse. To insert, push the fuse into the metal clips as far as you can by hand, then apply pressure with the flathead screwdriver to seat the fuse. ALWAYS push on the metal caps, and never push on the glass.

These are my preferred methods with everyday tools. If there are specialized tools for small light-strand fuses, a google search will yield info on those.

Max Power -

Agreed. If someone could help with this, I would be grateful. The rest of the task is a breeze, but removing the old fuses is hard and I am having no success getting the new ones in!

Mary/Shawn - this video explained it well for me:

If you have the right tool aka a micro-sized screwdriver with a flat head, it was easy.

Hope this helps.

a metal nail file and a pair of hemostats...the tip the of nail file at the tip of the metal fuse picks it up and hemostats gently lift them out...insertion of new ones should slant and press in...

kathrynlacaze -

I agree with Shawn, the main information of a gudie like this should be the replacement of the fuses. To cut and short an broken socket is not so hard at all.

Here in Germany we have nearly all old lights replaced with LED. It saves a lot of energy and it will not break for years.

TheLOD2010 - 回复

In the picture when you cut the wire it was the last part of the lights. My lights are faulty in the middle and I don't know where to cut. Also mine are multicolored so they have 3 wires so which wires would I cut? I can't just throw out half of my lights because I cut the strand in half

musicalwhovian25 - 回复

If you're in the middle of a strand, it's pretty much the same: only cut the two wires that do into the socket that refuses to work and then attach them together with wire connectors. Don't cut any other wires!

Kate Bollons -

can you easily find a blown bulb? if so how. if not how.

bobe nye - 回复

How stupid do you have to be to post this as it is a really dangerous way to fix your failing Christmas lights. The best way to fix it is to replace the bulb instead of chop the old one out and twist the cables together. All that is going to happen is either you are going to get an electric shock or push the voltage up of each lamp meaning they will burn out even quicker. If this procedure is done wrong all it will cause is electrocution or cause an electrical fire. A little common sense would prevail before posting this up!

paulcobbett - 回复

Reading this carefully, you'll see the author clearly state that cutting out a socket is a measure to be taken only if nothing else works: "If all else fails, the bulb socket may be broken beyond repair." The way he suggests is pretty good. Using crimp tool connections might be a little better, but both should be plenty safe. Adding electrical tape to hold the wire connector in place might be a good addition to this part of the instructions.

The fundamental problem is that these lights have gotten cheaper and lower quality as the years have passed, so working on them only gets more frustrating. If you ever find an older strand at a second-hand store, one with more space between the lights, you'll find it's much easier to use and is much more durable.

Kate Bollons -

I agree with Kate, the author of this article made it very clear that you only cut the bulb socket out if it totally failed. Cutting 1 or 2 bulb sockets out on a 50, 75, 100, or whatever lightstring, won't make a big enough difference for the rest of the bulbs to burn out faster. Most homes see quite a bit of voltage fluctuations anyways, that's why it is always a good idea to use surge protector in your home. But before you throw away your older Christmas lights because of a couple bad socket, and fill up our landfills even more, repairing them is for sure a good and safe idea, unless one is really a halfwit.

Eva Mills -

That’s pretty rude to call someone stupid. Personally I am grateful to the author that he took his time to post this. Also by making the repair it doesn’t “push the voltage up to each lamp.” if anything the current goes up to a very negligible amount since there is one less bulb in the series.

JR Bird -

I see that someone doesn’t know much about electricity. A bulb is not a resistor or capacitor so it will make no difference in the voltage. As someone with a degree in electronic engineering, cutting a bulb out is no big deal. Make sure its not plugged in. If you use a wire nut or wing nut wrap it in electrical tape. I would recommend using a different connector if your capable that will provide a more secure and safe connection. I also probably would not do this with outside lights unless proper precautions are taken, even then i still wouldn’t do it for outsude lights. It just takes some common sense and ingenuity.

mo Tom -

Did you create an account just to give a wrong answer? :)

“I see that someone doesn’t know much about electricity. A bulb is not a resistor or capacitor…”

The coil of tungsten in an incandescent bulb IS the resistor, that is how the heat and light are created.

Mark Midyette -

Great info. Hopefully this will help me not throw all my lights away in the future, haha.

LaserCat2600 - 回复

Hmmm, a light bulb (incandescent) is not a resistor? Interesting. So what causes the filament to get hot and give off light? Yes, it is resistive and will drop voltage. (The junction in an LED bulb will as well. )

Eva is right however, the extra voltage is not significant .

Seems “someone with a degree in electronic engineering” needs to go back to the books.

Skyln - 回复

A light bulb (incandescent) is not a resistor? Ridiculous. How’s does it dicipate power and generate light. Of course it will drop voltage.

Skyln - 回复

I have an issue where my set of LED lights will light up when plugged directly into an extension chord. However, when I plug that same set of LED lights into another strand that is currently lit, it will not work. I changed the fuses in the male ends of the lights but it did not help. All of the bulbs have to be good because the strand lights when I plug it into the extension chord but not when I plug it into the existing lit set of lights. Any help would be much appreciated.

John - 回复

Something to think about.

1) it works when plugged into the source.

2)it does not work when you plug into another set of lights.

It may be that the set of lights you are plugging into has a bad connector.

Try swapping the order the lights are ran.

Ken Johnson -

Just finished watching and reading thru the posts and have a quick question. Does the Lite Keeper work with LED Strands/bulbs. and If someone could explain the 3rd wire, as I too have this configuration. I have a prelit tree and am trouble shooting on the tree.. strands are wound into the tree, so not EASILY possible to remove and lay on floor or counter to see whole string.

thanks for the help. Mike

These were excellent instructions! So helpful!

Thank you!

Outdoor string lights! The squirrels cut several strands. There are two, three and four strands on the same strand.

I need to put them back together but i don't understand how.
