So we're trying to get the tree lit up. It's one of those faux pre-lit trees. I've got 2 strands that don't light up at all, even though there are strands after the dead ones that light up... and I've got a strand that is half lit, with the next strand fully lit. I've changed fuses and checked every light. Now I'm more bald than before.

Clark Griswald, I feel your pain

We have had decent results with one of these: Light Keeper Pro. It isn't 100%, but has saved us from re-stringing our pre-lit tree, twice.

Hmmm. Thanks! Not exactly a glowing review, but might be worth the $20 to see if I can NOT replace the $200 tree.

Off to the Depot...

Hey, look who it is! I was just thinking about you today, since I was ordering popcorn for the holidays, and you helped me out last year. Thank you, GOD!

I noticed I had a light set that was dead after a certain spot in the string, I pulled the first dead bulb out and it swapped it with another light, string was still dead. I then pulled the bulbs one more time and noticed that each light had the wire electrodes on the base twisted and one was broken short. I straightened the wire and ensured the short one was able to make contact in the base and suddenly I had a fully working light string.

Good luck with yours.

Both HD and Lowe's show it on line, but neither store (2 HD's, in fact) had it in stock locally...

And now our little $200 pre-lit tree is up to $315!! Sure glad the inflation rate is so low these days.
