Reach out to your tree manufacturer’s customer service hotlines for further assistance on how to fix Christmas tree lights. Disclaimer: warranties, product coverage, and required documentation vary per manufacturer. Read up on the warranty information. In some cases, a replacement strand, section, or full tree might be ideal. Here are some of the issues that your lighting warranty may cover.
2. Identify your Christmas tree light type.
It’s important to know what light type you’re dealing with before attempting to troubleshoot the issue. There are two general types of Christmas tree lights: traditional incandescent and energy-saving led. The latter comes with a higher price tag but lasts longer. Traditional green artificial trees and colorful ones come with clear and multicolor lights. Colorful trees also feature an option where lights match the foliage.
One key benefit to pre-lit Christmas trees is the time and energy saved in not having to wrap and unwrap light strings around the tree branches. Pre-lit Christmas trees are available with clear or multi-colored bulbs, and if one bulb burns out, the rest will remain lit. Lighting options available:
clear or multicolor incandescent bulbs – traditional glow.
There’s nothing like the sparkle of Christmas tree lights to bring magic to your holiday celebrations. A tree without illumination just seems bare, don’t you think?
Do you prefer the steady glow of traditional lights or an animated display? before you jump into buying and setting up the pre-lit Christmas tree of your dreams, here’s a guide to help you learn more about the different types of Christmas lights.
The Problem: All the Christmas tree lights aren’t working
Well, yesterday, about 7/8 of the lights on our new (as in bought at the end of last year’s Christmas season) tree stopped working. As in most of the tree is dark! So, we called the store where we bought it (a store that sells patio furniture and spas in the summer and trees in the winter), and they said we could either bring it in and they would check the lights, or we could buy a $20 tool that is supposed to somehow check the lights. Our tree has, I’m guessing, between 200-300 ornaments on it! I would look forward to taking them all off and the beads that I’ve tried to artfully arrange.
Color Blast Artificial Christmas Trees
You can even buy colored trees that are prelit. I saw one this year that was rainbow colored.

Light set fuse replacement (replaceable 3-amp 125v fuses are located in the plug) 1. Grasp plug and remove from its power source. 2. Locate blown fuse(s) by sliding access cover on top of plug towards prongs. Furthermore, where is the fuse bulb on Christmas tree lights? holiday lights usually have cartridge fuses in a small compartment in the cord plug behind a sliding door.
