Loose contact inside an AEG Koffer 100, cause it to flicker

Loose contact inside an AEG Koffer 100, cause it to flicker


I've seen this lantern flickering, after returning from this lamppost . Initially I thought that the flickering causing simply by the ignitor preventing a cycling HPS lamp to extingush, by igniting it at each half-cycle, but it turned out that the flickering is too wildly to be caused by the ignitor and more likely caused by a loose contact, and they were become stronger as the time elapsed, and I've also heard arcing noise from the lamppost or its arm. The lamp later began cooling down to a LPS color because of this.
The flickering reminds me of this . Probably the lamppost where the two Europhane Pilote T2 lantern located, also had a loose contact, and therefore, both lanterns flickered.

Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I hope that LED won't replace all forms of other light

That's weird. I thought it would have just gone out and kept restriking.

LEDs = Downgrade 99% of the applications.

The problem was arcing at a loose contact. The contact eventually failed, and the lantern stoped working. The lantern would behave the same even with incandescent or CFL. I can do the same flickering with my CFL in my table lamp, by move halfway the switch on the cable halfway from OFF to ON. The lamp then behaves exaclty the same as this lantern, and the switch makes the same clicks.
