it might need a new starter, or be a faulty bulb

sounds like its the bulb

dont know how safe it would be but maybe try taping the bulb in the place where it works

I have one light that I must have dropped in the water 3 times now. Like a dope, I just reached in and pulled it out. First two times it suffered no damage but the last time did it in. It won't do anything now and I don't need if I should even bother trying to replace the bulb or starter.
