Holiday Decorating/Fix christmas lights
I use white Christmas lights, 100 string to light my overhead cupboards. I have scenery and houses above and they are on a light saver that comes on for about 3 hours in the evening. Then half the string goes out and I have to take everything down and put up a new string. I was wondering if I could fix the string and how to do it.
Miniature lights can be frustrating. Look for missing and broken bulbs. Blackened bulbs should be considered suspect. Touch each bulb to see if it lights at all. You may want to try a Christmas light tester. Sometimes they work, sometimes not. If not, then take one bulb out at a time and put it in a socket of part that works. If it works, put it back in the non working set. Replace it, if it is burned out, even if the rest of the set lights with it. Be careful that the wires are in the proper place (sides of the base). Hopefully after the set is filled with good bulbs it will light. If not, the set may be defective.
I hope this helps.
