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.

Off to the Depot...


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.
