Harman Kardon 430 bulbs

Recommended Posts

Repairing my old HK-430 receiver, most of the bulbs are out.

 

Need this to replace my Pioneer 780 while i work on a new cabinet for it.

 

Found the fuse style bulbs for the tuner at Parts Express but am in need of the Stereo lamp and tuner pointer lamp.

 

Figured somebody may have a manual or experience with these and help me locate the right parts to get the job done.

 

By the way, anybody use the LED type yet ?

Jason, I need to replace a few bulbs in my 730, including the tuner, the Stereo lamp and the tuner pointer lamp.....so when you get the list of all of those together, would you mind posting?  Thanks.

I bought 8 volt LED fuse panel lamps for a friend's Marantz receiver. They dropped right in, they looked good, (bright and even) they use less current than a panel fuse lamp, and supposedly last longer. They were also less expensive than replacement or old stock panel lamps.

I will give them a try from you're glowing recommendation.

 

That tuner pointer bulb is really tiny. :unsure:

Yeah, i was planning on replacing mine with LEDs. I've heard some people find the LED causes some noise, but I've never had any trouble with them. Uf they already have the current limiting resistor built in, all the better.

 

Mike, where did yoy get the lamps?

Got my tuner point light and stereo light  from PE I think it was a LED been awhile. The fuse type lamps from PE seem to go out pretty fast maybe I'm getting wrong ones.

Thanks for the links, Jason. All the lights are out on mine and it would be nice to have it light up again.

 

Do those aready have a current limiting resistor built in?

Hey! I just got a 730 and looking to change the color of the lights to blue. Worth it? Easy? If yes, where would you recommend I get the parts?
