Does it reverse only those directly horizantal and vertical or all surrounding lights?
Edit: Also, does the light you press reverse also?

heh?

Ok, just for you Mr Bonj, here is a basic crash course in Lights Out. NB o means light "off" x means light "on".

If you have the following light arrangment...

0 0 0 0 0
0 0 X 0 0
0 X X X 0
0 0 X 0 0
0 0 0 0 0

and you pressed the middle one all the lights go out... game done.... However it is not as easy as that!! The first level on lights out is like this...

0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0
X 0 X 0 X
0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0

So I will complete this puzzle step by step, to give you an idea of how to do these!!... little o or little x is the one being pressed!

1)

0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0
X 0 X 0 X
0 0 o 0 0
0 0 0 0 0 ...

0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0
X 0 0 0 X
0 X X X 0
0 0 X 0 0

2)

0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0
X 0 0 0 X
0 X X X o
0 0 X 0 0 ...

0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0
X 0 0 0 0
0 X X 0 X
0 0 X 0 X

3)

0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0
X 0 0 0 0
o X X 0 X
0 0 X 0 X

0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0
X 0 X 0 X
X 0 X 0 X

4)

0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0
X 0 X 0 X
x 0 X 0 X ...

0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0
0 0 X 0 X
0 X X 0 X

5)

0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0
0 0 X 0 X
0 X X 0 x ...

0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0
0 0 X 0 0
0 X X X 0

6)

0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0
0 0 X 0 0
0 X x X 0 ...

Lights out.

I hope this gives you an idea on how to solve these types of puzzles... perhaps someone could create a winamp plugin game like that?!! However it gets complitated when you have a level like this...

0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0
0 0 X 0 0
0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0

And they just drive me totally bonkers!!!... Good luck!!!

Errm... Not quite...

The first one is ok...

0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0
0 0 x 0 0
0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0

(2 steps shown below)

0 0 0 0 0
0 o X 0 0
0 X 0 X 0
0 0 X o 0
0 0 0 0 0

However that move above would do this...

0 X 0 0 0
X X 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 X X
0 0 0 X 0

Sorry for not explaining this properly... It's kind of difficult... Remember to invert the button you press.. I don't think I said that... sorry!!...

Try again!!

Blah! I think that's right.. Feel free to double check my 4-step moves, because I'm not positive I got em right. I really should've done this with cards or wrote a quick vb prog or something.

Edit: Crap, I made a mistake on step 5. Yeah I gotta make a program or something so typos won't screw me up

Lots of info!

http://www.matthewb.redhotant.co.uk/links.html

That's a bunch of links to Lights Out implementations (shockwave, java, etc). That site also has hints on solving it.

Well done Mr Bonj!!! How the hell do you figure those out on paper?!!...

You inspired me to write a crap pascal program that does that... I am half way there, but I might post it when it's done...

If you are bored.. try to solve this...
