Setting up and Trouble Shooting the Magma Football and Soccer Ball

This is the Reboot Sports Magma light up football kit.  New versions are clear rather than orange.

The following applies to the Magma Light up Soccer Ball as well. (The soccer ball has two sets of electronics, so you have to do everything twice).

 Magma Light up Football by Reboot Sports

Remove clear plastic sleeve.  Carefully pull tab out and away from electronic.  Replace plastic sleeve.

Insert electronic into ball cavity.  If the hole is too tight, deflate the ball a little.  Bulb goes in first.

Get the plug started.  Push with your fingers / thumb.  Use the round end of the tool to push the plug flush with the ball.

Pressing with the tool will save your fingers.  You will need to use some pressure to seat it properly.

This is a properly seated plug.  It should be flush with, or even a little lower than the body of the ball.

Trouble Shooting the Magma Light up Football and Soccer Ball


First thing is first – Impact activates the ball. Give it a good slap. If nothing, hit it harder. If still nothing –

If your Magma Light up Football is not staying lit for 30 seconds / dim / blinking or shutting off on impact / or not functioning at all –

99% chance the batteries are not making a clean connection.

Remove electronic from ball.

Remove plastic sleeve from electronic.

Remove batteries. (Note their polarity. Negative side points towards LED)

You will see a metal tab that creates the Positive contact point.

That tab needs to be bent inwards, to create a tighter battery connection. A small flat head or a eyeglass screw driver works well for this.

If that does not solve your issues, no problem.
