Most of the S8 editors I used had 15 watt pygmy bulbs in them.

These people seem to have 3 in stock (I've bought bulbs from them recently: no troubles!)

70810 $20.00 Prefocused Lamp Assembly Editor Replacement Lamp 12 & 15 SI Screen Size Viewer P/N 7643

Maybe if you e-mail them a picture they can compare just to be sure.

Hi Pablo,

It sounds like a special bulb, as a matter of fact when I fooled around with the number it came up associated with "Baia". So either it is custom for them, or labeled with their part number(-no luck with a cross-reference).

If you can find a family of bulbs of identical geometry, your best bet is to measure the bulb voltage the editor supplies and go for the closest rated bulb, perhaps the next one lower. Hopefully the measured voltage will sink down a little bit under load and you'll wind up right where you need to be.

Barring that, maybe you should think about grabbing at least one of the bulbs I found above. They sound discontinued and perhaps rare.

I think this E-bay auction is exactly what you need: itor-Replacement-Lamp-Bulb_W0QQitemZ270105415164QQcategoryZ4790QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

If the pictures match what you have in the editor, 4 bulbs will last as long as you need them to. Besides, the pictures have electrical information.

The label in the auction pictures says "1129 lamp" this comes up as "6.4V 2.63A" (that’s 17 Watts, give or take a little) , apparently it's an old automotive bulb (back before cars became 12V, or maybe a motorcycle bulb). Maybe if you can find this bulb you can replace the one in the holder. The only hitch there is the thing is described as "pre-focused", so hopefully you would get it back in the holder adjusted correctly. I guess it protrudes through a mirror and the filament has to fall in the right place.

Good Luck!
