HOW TO EASILY FIND BAD CHRISTMAS LIGHT BULBS
UPDATE: I also tried a Light Keeper Pro to get a string of lights working. Sometimes that makes more sense and can work even faster but it can’t always repair bulbs so sometimes we still need to use a fallback method. Here’s the video: https://youtu.be/4JxXMluHDac
Here’s a way to simplify the process of finding the burned out light bulb in that long tangled string of Christmas lights that won’t light up anymore.
Although I was going sequentially through the lights, in practice I would have jumped halfway down the string to see which half to continue testing, then go halfway down the remaining string and so on until I narrow it down. I mentioned that at the very end but I probably should’ve said it sooner.
The tool in this video is a non-contact voltage tester. Here is one example product similar to mine (affiliate link):
In the old days I’d either go one by one, replacing bulbs until the lights come back on, or throw them out and go back to the store for more. Now it just takes a few minutes to track down the culprit.
