Lights Not Working on Pre-lit Tree

We bought a pre-lit xmas tree about ten tears ago. We set it up this year and all was well until a week later. We plugged it in and all the lights were out. Any first aid suggestions other than to get another tree?

My prelit tree is 12 years old. I use the light keeper pro and patiently worked from the plug end to the other end of each line of lights on each section. It took me most of a day to replace all the burned out bulbs - I had to replace more than 100 bulbs, but the tree is working. Patience. Patience. I also used a clothes pin to mark the spot where I stopped to replace the bulb.

Buy some strings of lights and do like we all did before we could get pre-lit trees.

I would be interesting in finding out if anyone actually gets the lights lit on their pre lit trees when theyhave problems like yours. Please post the solution if you find one. From reading this forum, though, I think 10 years for a pre-lit tree is pretty good!

Are you referring to the GE "constant on" tree? If so, I have found a solution after hours and hours of messing with it!!
