    The front panel lights on a JVC R-X400 receiver are burned out, and I am
    looking for a source. They are 12V and look like a standard buss fuse
    (about 1" long x 1/4" in diameter). Anybody know of any good source for
    bulbs?

    Thanks!

    Buss is a brand, and they make fuses of many different sizes. I think
    you're referring to the bulbs which are 1-1/4" long by 1/4" dia, which
    are the 3AG size.

    As to your question, I'm afraid I don't know the answer, but I'll
    watch here in the hope that someone else does. Those bulbs were used
    in a lot of amps in the 60s-70s, but I don't see them in any of
    today's catalogs.

    Jim,

    Someone over in sci.electronics.repair made an almost identical post to mine
    at the same time. He was looking for bulbs for a Pioneer. Here is a post
    he got. If you are looking for those type of bulbs, looks like there is a
    source!

    Based on your response to my post, I did a google search on 3AG lamp and
    found the following:

    apparently these bulbs are 3AG in size (a fuse size) and sometimes called
    fuse lamps. Might want to try "lamp" instead of "bulb" in a search also.

    Your mileage may vary!

    Maybe strange, but some shop where they sell car parts? Those kind of bulbs
    are also used in old cars. They are 12V....
