New neon Bulb for New Net City

Post by Moonwalker » March 20th, 2019, 3:30 pm

Hi guys,

I need a new fluruoscent light bulb for one of my NNC cabs. The original from Toshiba is not available anymore and even less in Germany. Has anybody a good website or other tip for me?

Thanks
Luciano

Does it have to be Toshiba brand?

You can pick up a 600mm fluorescent tube from any hardware store. It's going to be slightly longer than the original one, but it fits fine.

Personally I put LED tubes in all of mine.

If you're in Team Erzane, then nevermind!

:lol:

yeah some led bulb would probably be best .....I think you get rid of the starter if you put in an led bulb.

<trk>:I remember catching a big fat one and my friend said "throw it back in, that one already tastes like wood"

That's right. You need to bypass the starter.

There's a thread here:
