Re: KR-5400A controller light bulbs



I don't install lamps anymore.  Try a high brightness, colourless LED.  They
work well and last forever.  Measure the voltage where the lamp is installed
and calculate the dropping resistor value for the LED.

Replacing soldered lamps is usually a pain-in-the-neck job.  Replacing LEDs
happens once.
