Need TFM-35X meter light bulbs or assembly

Post by dms8812 » Mon Apr 19, 2004 4:02 pm

I recently purchased, on ebay, a Carver TFM-35X. The meter lights are burned out. Anybody know the source for replacement lamps or the small circuit board with new lamps?

I was licensed tech and have repaired and built many components so I have no qualms about replacing the lamps on the circuit board if I could only locate them.

Anyone know the specs of these lamps? I measured the voltage to them and it is about 2.8 volts DC. I assume they are 3 volt lamps but I don't know the current available to them in the circuit.

Thanks for the response.

I tried that number for two days and all I got was an answering machine. I leave messages but nobody calls back.

TFM-35x lights

Call 1-425-335-4748 and ask for Rita in Carver service. She will be able to get you your bulbs. Just ordered two myself.

Terrific! I was able to order the lamps. They also had a replacement for a broken handle on the amp.

How did you find this source? It's a gold mine for owners of older Carver components.

TFM-35x bulbs

I ran into this source on the internet a few years ago when the meter lights on my first TFM-35x blew out. I have since sent a second TFM-35x in for repairs as well as my CM-1090. Rita was able to repair both. Unfortunately they only service Carver amps and not their other components. Glad you were able to get some use out of it.
