    Does anyone have any information about where to obtain a replacement bulb
    for the Quick-EII eprom eraser from ZAX Corp? I have tried to contact the
    Japanese company that owns the ZAX name, but have received no reply. Any
    documentation or info on this product would be appreciated. Thanks in

    If this is a fluorescent type, the model number is on the quartz tube.
    If it's an argon glow lamp, I don't know.

    Are you sure there is no other problem like a defective interlock
    that kills the lamp when the eraser is opened?
  3. Look around for "germicidal lamps". I believe that quite a few EPROM
    erasers use the G4T5, which is the same shape and size and electrically
    compatible with a 4 watt fluorescent bulb.
    It may be a different wattage - look at fluorescent bulbs at a hardware
    store or a home center and if you see one of the same size and lead style,
    the wattage is that of the EPROM bulb. The EPROM bulb would then be
    G(wattage)T(diameter in eights of an inch)

    That is assuming the bulb is the usual germicidal that resembles a
    fluorescent bulb. These are basically fluorescent lamps that lack
    phosphor and are made with a special glass (usually not pure quartz) that
    is transparent to the 253.7 nm wavelength of mercury.
