Internal Lamps For A Kenwood Model Nine G

I just received a Kenwood Nine G that was purchased in 1978. It had been in an attic for over 20 plus years and about to be thrown away before I spotted it on the side of a house. Once hooked up, I noticed the lights on the left power meter and signal strength meter were out. Controls and switches were dirty and there was a hum in both channels. I cleaned the controls and switches, but was unlucky finding replacement lamps. Next step is to find the cause of the hum.

Any help finding the replacement lamps for the Model Nine G would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Mike



Internal Lamps For A Teac 2300s

I just purchased a Teac 2300 S in mint condition, except that one of the internal fuse type lamps is out. Where should I look for these?
Thanks

check for a number on the bulb, 47 is 6.3 volts, 57 is 14 volts, 44 is 6.3 volts and 1866 is 6.3 volts, there are others as well, measure the voltage at the lamp, does it screw in or push in and twist, I have several of these bulbs, the blue covering on it would have came from the manufacturer.

How difficult is it to replace the lamps. I have found a source for them. It looks like a front panel will come off, after removing the knobs on the left... Or, is this a mfg trick to make one think it is not too difficult?
Thanks

Do the lamps look like fuses? If so, those are still available; most are 8 volt 200 or 250ma, some are 12 volt. If they have leads (wires) those are also available.

The lamps are bulbs with a blue tint on them. I've seen the fuse type lamps and also the LED fuse type lamps. With some modifications (fuse holders), they might work. I just purchased some High Brightness White LEDs from RS and I'm going to see how well they work. Thanks for you comment.

I would like to find OEM lamps, but it looks as if LEDs are going to be my best bet.
