Panasonic WJ-225 bulbs cheap?

    Panasonic part number 002-YW6200120500, it's the wedge type miniature
    bulb that fits inside pushbuttons.

    Panasonic wants $6+ and the only other site I've found on the web
    wants $4+. I need 12 and I doubt the switcher is worth the $50 these
    days.

    Any help appreciated as to a standard cross, voltage specs, etc.

    relmore at utm dot edu if you want to ping me, otherwise I'll lurk for
    a while.

    TIA!

  3. Do your homework and cross-reference it to an industry-
    standard lamp number. Likely have to do this by description
    and dimensions, etc.

    When I bought an old Sony SEG-2000A switcher on eBay,
    over half the button lamps were burned out. I found a very
    similar bulb (clear vs. frosted in the Sony original) at Radio
    Shack (of all places!) I went around to all the RS stores in
    the metro area and bought them out, but all the bulbs now
    work fine. These were wire-lead bulbs that fit into the
    white plastic button reflector.

    Thanks Ken. It didn't come up at the Newark/MCM site until I thought
    of dropping the 002- prefix. They're a buck higher than Fox
    Electronics, but it did state the specs at 12V 50ma. I guess I'll
    look at anything similar by Chicago Miniature in the Allied and Mouser
    catalogs now.

    Anyone with any leads on a PN for an equivalent non-Panasonic brand
    bulb, holler.

    Thanks again!

    Thanks Richard. I have it down to 12V 50mA, and I've got a set of
    calipers in the desk drawer. I was hoping the switcher was popular
    enough and there were some old timers in here that had already found a
    source. No problem with rolling up the shirtsleeves and hitting the
    books with this guy.

    I found the 12 volts 50 mA from MCM Electronics to work #25-1370.
    Cut the leads about half inch push them on the lower contacts of the switch.
    You might have to lift the contacts slightly to slide the leads under and push the bulb using a needle nose plier.

    Caution- disconnect power to the unit first.
