Halcyon has spent years refining its lighting systems to make them as rugged as possible. Despite our best efforts, light cords can be smashed by rolling tanks and O-rings can be damaged. Regardless of the cause, a flooded light can create great anxiety. Our Tech Services experts have assembled a list of instructions outlining the management of a flooded light. Please see the following suggestions and contact a Halcyon staff member if you have any questions.
Remove the battery from the canister and dry it as much as possible.
Even if the flood was in salt water, do not rinse off any component with fresh water—it will only cause further damage.
Remove the bulb and gently towel dry.
Dry the underside of the lid.
With the 10-watt HID, remove the front glass lens and the bulb and dry all external surfaces.
Dry off the inside of the canister.
Do not disassemble the unit other than the bulb removal.
Keep the battery separate from the rest of the components—specifically with saltwater damage, do not put a previously flooded battery into the canister and latch the lid.
Return all components (including charger) to your Halcyon dealer for repair. If you do not have a local dealer, you can contact Halcyon’s tech services department directly via email for instructions on returning the light to the factory.
