Replacing Meter Lamps in the Omni VI+

From the Ten-Tec Reflector February 5, 2002

I need to replace a meter bulb in my Omni 6+. However, I can't seem to find the bulb number in the manual, is it the same as in the 238 tuner, if not what is the number?

I have #47 penned in next to the two bulbs on the 563 Manual wiring diagram sheet (the fold-out sheet).

Replacing the S-meter lamp is easy.

  1. Have a good #47 bulb ready. Very common easy to find.
  2. Remove the top cover of the Omni, 4 phillips head screws
  3. Change the lamp
  4. Replace the cover

On today's Ten-Tec user net I mentioned a small project I had undertaken, changing all the pilot lamps on my rack-mounted Ten-Tec gear to LEDs. If you're interested I've written up the exercise and placed a small article on my website.

Neat site!

Here's my offering of lamp to LED replacements.

Direct replacements and at reasonable cost.

Ebay sells replacement pin ball machine lamps that are LED, they also come in a number of colors blue, green etc. I ordered a pair of green LED lamps put them in my VI+ and have a great green lighted meter to go with the green lighted display.

Have fun DAN, K3XR
