There’s nothing quite as magical as a beautifully lit Christmas tree. But what happens when Santa’s best lights fail to shine? Don’t worry, we’ve got the recipe for a festive fix that will have your tree looking merry and bright in no time.
– A strand of Christmas lights – Replacement bulbs (if needed) – A small screwdriver – Patience (and maybe a glass of eggnog)
1. Unplug the lights from the wall and locate the faulty bulb. This will be the bulb that is not lit or that is flickering. 2. Remove the faulty bulb by gently twisting it counterclockwise and pulling it out of the socket. 3. Inspect the bulb to see if it is burnt out or damaged. If it is, replace it with a new bulb of the same wattage and style. 4. If the bulb looks fine, use a small screwdriver to clean the contact points inside the socket. Sometimes the contact points can become dirty or corroded, preventing the current from flowing properly. 5. Insert the replacement bulb or cleaned bulb back into the socket and give it a gentle twist clockwise to secure it in place. 6. Plug the lights back in and check to see if the problem has been fixed. If not, repeat the steps with the next faulty bulb.
