    Having problems with my new Blackburn Flea

    I cannot get it to charge. I have the Flea, not the 2.0. I am trying to charge it with a battery, as shown in the instructions, but it will not charge. It says to disable Demo mode, which I don't seem to be able to do either.

    Some help please.....

    I didn't make it nor did I sell it to you. Have you considered asking the people who did those things?

    So then why are you even posting? If you can't help, don't post.

    Why did you post a question about your light in the Single Speed / Fixed Gear forum? If it's not about Single Speeds or Fixed Gears then you shouldn't post it here.



    I'll make a deal with you. Help me find my keys and I'll help you fix your light. Deal?

    It is about my SS/FS, its going on my SS/FS bike!!!! Maybe someone in this forum has one and can help me out, unlike you.

    You gave another smart-ass answer in my other thread also. If you can't answer the question I am posting about, DO NOT POST in my thread!!

    I had a flea, biggest piece of junk that I have ever had. Kicked the bucket after two rides and wouldn't recharge. Better off getting a cateye light next time.

    They have a life-time warranty. I'm going to bring them back to my LBS and see what they can do for me.

    How long have you held it down? Took the one I had about a minute.

    Just tried again, held it for a little over a minute and nothing happened.

    What should happen when I hold the button?

    Not getting anything from it.

    I tried charging it, but no luck there either. It says when connected correctly, charging lights should come on. Not for me.

    Should have said, I bought front and a rear light. Having the same problem with both.

    I wanted these because of their small size. Does another company make a small light?
