    Default Help finding these pachislo bulbs

    Can anyone point me in the direction to find these bulbs in the picture , i only need one but back stock wouldn't be a bad idea, they go on the sides of the reel windows near the bonus and reel line amounts, etc light up...They are definitely built into the socket and slightly smaller than reel bulbs but bigger than what i was sent to try..I can't find a voltage on it...

    Thanks in advanceIMG_20170508_122727[2].jpgIMG_20170508_122711[1].jpgIMG_20170508_122736[1].jpg

    Well i mailed the bulb to the guy that i got the others from in hopes he can match it up...We shall see...I didnt think it would be this tuff, seems like it would be a common bulb as i've seen lots of 1999 Azteca's around.

    pretty sure the bulb should pull out of the black housing. Will check mine when I get home if I can remember. I have a box of the ones take the castle linked to that I use in all my various pachis, but dont have your exact model.

    I would appreciate it, but i'm 99% sure it doesn't come out. I atleast know the bulbs themselves are smaller than the reel bulbs but bigger than the ones you see with the square bases on bottom, etc that you usually see.

    all of mine (this of course isn't all machines I'm sure) the black piece makes the connector to the board, the bulb pushes (hard) into the black piece. it takes some rocking back and forth and force to get the bulb out but I've not come across one that doesn't come out? They work similar to automotive dash board lights. push in the bulb spin the connector into place and off to the races

    If that's truly the case, I'm stuck between a rock & a hard place because i sent my dead bulb with base to a ebay dealer so he could match it up and he didn't have them... so he sent me to another that didn't have them...so now i'm down one base as well and don't wish to destroy a working one to see if it pulls out if it in fact does not...the best way i can describe the bulb and socket is you know how the small christmas lights have a base that is attached to the bulb that if you were to undo the copper wire then sure you could pull out the bulb itself but it's not really meant to, well on this one the wire which is a silver metal color is finely placed in a rectangular formation inside of these small gaps around the sides of the base and then up the top edge of the socket right before it shapes into the thinner part of the base where the bulb go's in.. it's tucked on each side so when you twist it into the socket the wires make contact...

    Finally got the bulb back yesterday...Tried to remove the bulb gently, the copper running from the bulb down inside the base to the sides where it's attached to the contact metal broke off as i thought they might..the socket is still good, i just dont think it was meant to refurbish at all.
