Lamp Module Bites the dust.
« on: September 28, 2021, 08:34:57 PM »

After just 37 years of use, one of my brown BSR lamp modules no longer works correctly.  It turns on OK but when turned off the light just blinks and stays on.  I bought it from DAK in 1984.  I think it may be out of warranty now.  :' rofl  rofl

They just don't make them like they used to.

I'm still using Radio Shack 'Plug 'n Power' modules from the late 70's when they first came out...amazes me since they've been turning on and off for 40+ years. I also just replaced one of my original mini controllers that stopped working, also from the 70's.
