Same thing happened to my IlluminaTi a few years back. Cleaned the contact at the head a few times and it has worked great ever since.

Really? I feel almost silly asking, but how did you clean it?

A contact cleaner like Deoxit works best, but high proof rubbing alcohol will do in a pinch. Use a moistened q-tip to scrub all the surfaces clean. Don't forget to to do the screw threads - and especially the part where the body makes contact with the disc in the head.

Thanks! I have contact cleaner and Q-tips. Will give this a shot later today. Nothing appears oxidized, but it can only help, i suppose. I will be thrilled if this fixes it.

Let us know if it works.
A pencil eraser works in a pinch as well...

Nope. Didn't work. NFG. Titanium Innovations is off my list of future purchases. They finally responded to a second email inquiry saying that the price of a new head was the same as a new light. No way am I giving them any more of my $.
