Christmas Lights Don't Work When Strung Together?

I have 3 strands of brand new (Target brand) snowflake lights. They all work when tested inside. After being hung and attached end to end, only the set (#1) closest to the power cord works. I detached the middle set (#2) and plugged that into the extension cord and it worked. The sets specifically say they are meant to be connected to multiple sets. What gives?

If they are brand new, I would return them to Target.

If you don't want to take them back, call the maker. The number should be on the box. This is their customer services number:

1 (800) 440-0680

Post back what they say! Hope it all works out and your get to finish decorating. So frustrating!

did you try to flip them around so that you plug #2 to the wall and then #1 to it?

aside from that, clearly the packaging lied and they do nt like being plugged in end to end


if you dont' want to/can't return them, you could always just run a bunch of extension cords to create the illusion of cohesion
