Repairing Outdoor Snowflake Lights?

We have a string of large snowflake lights that aren't working. There are 5 large snowflakes. The bulbs are encased in plastic. Any ideas on how to fix? Many thanks!

Normally, if one bulb burns up in these types of light strings, they won't light any longer. You would have to find a way to get to the light bulbs and change them out one at a time. Otherwise inspect the wiring to make sure there is no damage to the wire and you don't have a broken wire.

Its a bit late to help the originator of the question but I am working on what sounds like the same snowflakes. I was able to gently pry apart the two halves of the plastic snowflake with a glathead sctewdriver. All bulbs are black inside the first flake, and it looks as if all are from what I can see through the white plastic.


I put in a new fuse. Now need 30 new white bulbs. Bah humbug.
