    MS MJ-816 question, modes

    got an mj816 for Christmas. as soon as i plug the light into the battery it turns on. i can cycle the modes but it doesn't turn off at any point. i have to unplug it to get it to turn off. is this normal operation? read the manual but it is vague, thanks.

    Doesn't sound normal, but you can try holding the power button down for a few seconds as that's another way of turn off some of the Magicshine models.

    Unfortunately, it sounds to me like you've got a defective one. There is something wrong with the driver board so that is not turning the LED completely off when it should.
