On "11" it is nice and bright - on every other number it isn't on at all.  I've checked it in total darkness and 11 works great, but no other settings gives even a flicker.

Is the battery cap on good and tight?

Since this is a Customer service issue you would be best served to call SWFA direct 972-726-7348. They have the expertise on the S.S. line of scopes to take care of any issues you may have.  Wink

+1, the likely culprit along with maybe a weak battery.

It could be a weak battery or worse it could be the potentiometer has opened up.  Then it would only work at full brightness cause the pot is by passed.

Chris emailed me - when the battery starts to get low it will do this - put in a new one and viola, it works fine now :)
