    Looking for an E10 Bulb Philips Number 8097D/711MPX - it is from a Philips Reel to Reel Continental 220 Tape Recorder which is also very hard to find any info about.

    Can anyone give me some ideas who may have a bulb such as noted above?

    What does the bulb do? I mean, what does it light? Meters or switches...?

    E10 is the name of the connection, Phillips is the manufacturer.

    If you can find the voltage and wattage, go look for an E10 bulb with those ratings.

    Assuming the bulb operates from your local mains voltage, a trip to a local lighting store should get you a replacement lickity split.

    I believe it's a 19 Volt and a 19 Watt.....not positive, and know very little about anything actually!

    You need to know the voltage and wattage. It should be written on the old bulb.

    If you have no old bulb you can (very carefully) measure the voltage on the socket and then choose a wattage that is bright enough.

    That's what this also indicates.

    You could also use a White LED with a Diode and Resistor as a replacement.
