Me too Martin! About two weeks ago it went out. I'm still looking at how to fix it. If anyone knows the specs and voltage that goes to this little light, please jump in here.

Hi Martin. I replaced one of mine last year. It was relatively straightforward as far as I remember. I measured the voltage of the bulb contacts and it was easy to find equivalents online. Please confirm this but the ones I used were 12V 30mA 0.35W. I bought a pack of ten from CES Ltd, 174 Dalkeith Rd, Edinburgh. EH16 5DX. Please let me know if you have any trouble and I can send you a couple.

Looks like a car panel lamp to me, certainly the same voltage, they still sell these type of lamps, or similar to Christmas tree lights, you would have a selection of colours if you could find a 12v version......

As far as I can recall, If you remove the back cover, detach the multi pin connectors (I believe there are three) and speaker connectors, you can then unscrew the base and the circuit boards are easily accessible. I havenít had to do it for a few months but donít remember it being too tricky. Give me a shout if I can be of any use.

Hi Martin a top tip for you if you tackle the job. First time I tackled a strip down of a Stereo Eumig some years ago I took the precaution to first colour code with multi-coloured markers all the block connects in the back, both top plug and sockets. The rest is quite a strip down from the base I'm afraid.
First thing I do when working on equipment needing deep repair is this.
Set up a camcorder on a tripod with a clear view of the projector and record the strip down. When you have carried out the repair play the recording backwards to see how it all goes back together again.
