Noob question: I have a Clairtone 7978 with nonfunctioning tuner display bulbs. I have seen Fatdog's post from several years ago on the 2 led customization of a rising-2015. Slightly intimidated as a completly unskilled rookie I started to look for bulbs. I found several options which I would like your advice on and wondering if the approach has changed since the original mod.

Found:

1. 6V 100 ma Axial lead bulbs

2. 8V 200 ma Axial lead bulbs

3. Warm White 3 LED Axial 8 VDC Replacement Lamp 5-Pack (white or green)

4. The 2 standard LED mod seen previously.

Any thoughts, recent experience or suggestions?

Thanks

2 LED Rising lighting mod reference.

I have recent experience (Sony FH-7 replaced with LEDs with thanks to RockE's guide)

Am a noob too, do you have a photo of the 7978 bulb and circuit board it is on?
