    Hi all I have yet another blown bulb. It seems that I replace one then another goes! I love everything else about my vec but I have never replaced so many ****** bulbs since owning it. Rant over.

    Can't you put LED lights instead? Most likely solving the problem.

    Think the led lights will bring bulb error up, or they flicker i believe.
