Apple II keyboard light

I was ordering some parts to repair my keyboard, and I stumbled upon a light bulb which in dimensions seems to be perfect for my broken light bulb.
I don't know if there are different light bulb for the different keyboard types?
It's a good match for my europlus keyboard.
Just ordered it, so it's untested.

Part no. CM7361-ND from
http://www.digikey.com/product-search/en?keywords=CM7361-ND

Just wanted to let you know, in case someone else needs it.

EDIT: It fits perfectly in my keyboard.

Re: Apple II keyboard light

Speaking about the keyboard light, does anyone know where I could find an 'Enhanced' sticker to apply to it?

I don't currently own an enhanced model; all my systems are pre-enhanced but I'm pretty sure if it was an enhanced model it was printed. Not a sticker, onto the machine.

It is indeed an original enhanced model and I believe that the 'enhanced' label was always just a sticker on top of the power indicator.

Re: Apple II keyboard light

Hi how do I replace the lamp in a 'raised' power light (button) on an Apple II Plus (early plus that has the fully raised button).

I popped off the power key-cap and I see the little lamp. Do I just use pliers? Do I have to remove that white plastic piece?

Thanks

Re: Apple II keyboard light

If you can see the bulb, wrap a piece of (say) Scotch tape to the top of the bulb and pull it straight up.
Easy-peasy. Smile

Re: Apple II keyboard light

Make sure you put the bulb in with a paper towel, or at least wipe it down with alcohol. The oil from your hands keep the heat on the bulb and it eventually melts and dies. Its a good precaution.

I got a few of these bulbs and they don't fit my Apple II at all. They are too large... The legs won't fit in the socket.

Re: Apple II keyboard light

What keyboard? if you're looking for the raised power light original Apple II keyboard you need a different bulb. I'm not at home so I don't have the link handy (forget if it was jameco or digikey) for the bulb you'd need.

Yes, mine needs the first, and I bought the second. It's a later keyboard (1980) with raised square.
