Introduction

The toggle switch on the Fosera Scandle 200 has three positions for Off, Low Power, and High Power. If the switch stops working it is possible that you will not be able to turn the lantern off, or the lantern may not turn on. Either way, a bad switch will limit the usefulness of the Fosera Scandle 200, and it will need to be replaced.

To open up the casing, you will need to unscrew the four Phillips #0 15mm screws which are accessible from the back.
