Hello everyone,

I have reached my wits end in trying to figure out this lightbulb. I have been to Home Depot, Lowe's and a specialty light store, with no luck. Here are a few pictures of the bulb www.eleazar.org/lightbulb (including High-Res versions). I also included a few pictures of the socket, they are under cabinet lights and the bulbs haven't been replaced in the five years we have lived here, only about 4 out of 11 are still working. The light bulbs we have tried so far have been too narrow, too wide and too long (and I think too short as well). The lightbulb says 120V35W, but those are the only markings. Please help!

Thanks! :)

looks like it is a T4 bulb shape but next time when you put up a photo of that one grab a coin like quarter or dime for referering to the size then we can able dail down to the more correct size.

Merci,Marc

{ note here unless i did read it wrong it possiblty it is a 24 volt bulb due the prints teaseing my eyes }

Thank you for the quick reply :) I have attached a new picture with a dime in it. Great idea! The 1 in 120V turned white (I assume from the heat), but it is there.

MY answer is pull the light fitting down to look for a model number and a serial number and a manufacturer and contact them.

looks to be a halogen type bulb to me. you may have better luck going to your friendly neighborhood hardware store rather than a bigbox.
i've looked everywhere for certain bulbs, not found them.... but Stan had them!!! (should've gone there first...)

If you have a lamps plus nearby, you might give them a try. They usually carry a wide selection of light bulbs.

Never would have thought I would have seen that in a residence. It looks like an indicator lamp for a control panel. OP, what type of fixture does this lamp go into. I'm curious.

either

It's either a t-3 or t-4 bi-pin halogen. There are different voltages. Sometimes the fixtures have a step-down transformer that will shed some more light on what type of bulb you need.

Recently bought two (2) of those: G8 bulbs, 35 watts, at Lowes (I'm sure HD has them also) in the specialty lighting section. About $4.50 each. Mine went in those under-the-counter lights you just touch a pad to turn OFF/ON.
