Hi, does anyone know how to fix lightsaber blades?
I have a couple that the lights have gone halfway up.

Cheers in advance.

If you are talking about a store bought saber with a string blade (the blade is lit through a series of leds running up the length of the blade) there is no way to fix it.
Once LEDs in the string go out you have to replace the whole string of LEDs.

What most owners do of such blades is have the hilt converted to an LED in hilt with removable blade option.

Since you are in the UK the BEST person to reach out to would be Khal Jahromi, the owner of KR Sabers.
