For technical questions, please call 1-800-444-3353. SAVE THIS INSTRUCTION SHEET. IMPORTANT 1. Allow the solar pathway marker to receive at least 8 hours of direct sunlight with the toggle switch in the “Flash” (Left) or “Constantly On” (Right) position before first use. From then on the light will turn on and off automatically. Note: Always set the switch in the “Flash” or “Constantly On” position when charging in sunlight. Never set the switch in the “Off” (Mid) position when charging. 2. During the day, the solar panel converts sunlight into electricity, recharging the battery. The amount of light it receives depends on placement, geographic location, weather, and seasonal lighting ability. To get maximum results, please make sure you install them in a sunny location where they can get at least 8 hours of direct sunlight a day. If the weather is cloudy, the battery will not have enough power for the light to operate at night. It will recharge the next sunny day. 3. Shadow will prevent the solar panel from fully absorbing sunlight, such as tree branches, any shadow from trees, buildings, etc. Please change the location of the solar light to the area with more sun. 4. Any other light source, such as street or porch lights, may prevent the unit from turning on automatically at night. TROUBLESHOOTING The performance of solar light depends upon the amount of direct sunlight available during daylight hours. If your solar light does not operate properly, refer to possible reasons listed below: Dim Light: 1. The switch contacts may be poor. Turn the switch on and off several times to alleviate the problem. 2. The battery may be low or under charged. Make sure the lights are located in an unobstructed location where they can receive at least 8 hours of sunlight a day. Allow the battery to recharge for 2 full, sunny days. Overcast days will limit performance. 3. Dirty Solar Panel. A dirty solar panel will not allow the unit to charge, shortening the life of the battery. Use a soft, damp cloth to clean the solar panel. Do not use bleaches or detergents. No Light: 1. The switch may be in the “Off” position. Turn it to the “On” or “Flash” position. 2. An external light source (i.e. streetlight, porch light, flood light) may prevent the light from automatically turning on at night. If the Light Sensor senses the light, the unit will not be turned on. Reposition the Solar Light. 3. Batteries may need recharging.
