How to fix LED Christmas lights
Why are half string lights out?
A light bulb has come out of its socket or is half out of its socket and it has brought down the circuit. For light strings that commonly have over 50 bulbs, they are constructed in 2 or more continuous circuits. If a bulb is missing in a circuit only the bulbs in series of it will go out.
Why does only half a string of LED lights work?
If half a strand is working and the other half is not, you probably have a loose or broken bulb. Start with the first unlit bulb and work your way down, wiggling them to check for looseness. If it flickers, that’s your cue to replace it.
How do you fix half Christmas lights without a tester?
Pull out one bulb at a time, and stick a piece of folded up foil into the bulb socket. If the lights come on, you know that’s the bad bulb. If they don’t, put the bulb back in and move on to the next one.
Why are half of my LED lights dim?
Voltage drop comes into play when your LED strip runs, your wiring, or both, are too long. The resistance in these conductors adds up – and your LEDs start to operate below their optimal voltage range, resulting in dimming.
How do I know if my Christmas light fuse is blown?
Check the Fuses
You can sometimes tell by sight if a fuse has blown; the metal filament inside the glass cylinder will have a break in it. Learning how to change a fuse in Christmas lights is simple: Open the sliding compartment door and remove the fuse(s).

Why is one part of my LED lights not working?
Bad Pin Connection – If your LED strip light fails to turn on at all, then check your pin connections. Most likely, the pin is not inserted correctly. In rare cases, the pin is faulty. These tiny connectors are rather delicate items so you have to be very careful when inserting them.
How do you know which bulb is bad on LED Christmas lights?
Simply bring the light tester close to each bulb. The tester’s indicator will light up when it’s near a functioning bulb. If you have a non-contact voltage detector, bring the detector close to the wire section between each bulb to test for voltage. The dead section of wire will be the section after your bad bulb.
Can LED Christmas lights be fixed?
The only way to fix the problem is to find the bad bulb. Sometimes only a section of the lights will go out, making your job pretty easy. However, if the entire string of lights is out, you will need to check every lightbulb. That means pulling off each bulb, replacing it with a good bulb, and plugging it in.
How can you tell which bulb is blown on Christmas lights?
You can tell which bulb is out on your string of traditional Christmas lights by looking for the bulb that is “burned out” by looking at the tiny little filaments in the light bulbs to see which bulb is “burned out” or has lost it’s filament. Many times the bulb will be “smoked” as well.
Do LED string lights have fuses?
Like the incandescent strings before them, the LED strings have a fuse in series with each side of the AC line, located in the plug. Usually there is a trap-door in the plug to open and access the fuses, or there may be a section that pulls out. Quite often these are hard to open.
Why are there two fuses in Christmas lights?
Fuse Faults. Typically, these strings of lights have two tiny fuses, one in each side of the AC line, located inside the AC plug. The fuses are intended to melt or “blow” before the copper wires in the string could melt or cause a fire from overload.
