Q1: How can I activate the timing function?
Why don’t the lights work after the battery was correctly installed and switch to TIMER ON or TIMER OFF?
A1: Switch to TIMER ON to activate the timing function. The TIMER ON / TIMER OFF can only control the timing function, the factory default mode is Power off, for the first use or after replace the batteries, you need to press the Mode/ Power button to turn on the lights.
Q2: Why is there a loose spring in the battery box?
A2: All fairy lights are tested before we ship them so that customers get the best quality products. We, however, can not guarantee that damage won’t occur during shipment
or from incorrect use. Placing the loose spring back to its original spot should get the lights working again.
Q3: Why don’t the lights come on when I press the Mode/ Power button?
- Check the power level of the batteries.
- Confirm if the lights went off automatically in TIMER ON mode. If this is the case, this is completely normal. The fairy lights have entered the 18 hour off mode. If you want to turn the lights back on, turn the TIMER OFF and press the MODE/POWER button.
Q4: Why doesn’t the remote work?
- Did you remove the protective transparent film? If not, do so.
- Is there power in the batteries? If not, replace all batteries with new ones.
Q5: Do the batteries in the fairy lights die quickly? How long do new batteries usually last?
A5: Battery life is dependent on the capacity and quality of the battery. In our tests, 3 AA batteries will give about 120 hours of light in steady ON MODE and 15 - 20 days in TIMER MODE.
Q6: Is the fairy lights bright enough? Why does the lighting look a bit yellow?
A6: Use the remote to adjust the brightness by pressing “DIM-” or “DIM+”. The color temperature is 2700-3000K, which is acceptable to most people.
