Fv$#!&g Christmas Tree Lights - 'tis the Freakin' Season

Rate this topic

51 posts in this topic

Six year old 9' pre-strung Balsam Hill. Only used indoors. Incandescent lights that are not supposed to go out if one light blows, but I have half and full segments out. Cockamamie design with "master bulbs" that are not the source of my problem. Their advice is to wiggle every bulb in dark string, I have, wiggle this Balsam Hill. 

 

Lightkeeper Pro helps but will blow out several good bulbs while "fixing" the few with a shunt problem.  

 

I have replaced at least 50 bulbs in a 1,000 bulb tree, so far and only have two base sections done. One more and top (a quarter of its lights out, cannot solve).

 

New tree with LEDs costs more than a Saltiga and a Saltist MQ combined. 

 

Just bought two strings of lights at HD and will lace those into dark spots. 

 

First world problems

 

Ho Ho Ho!

 

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

Thanks weathervane, that's the front of our house. 

 

Have not been by yet this year, but this is a perennial decoration in a nearby community.

Nope, normal, but no homeowners association so no one for the local Karen's to complain to.
