Anyone know anything about connecting cold cathodes?
« on: March 27, 2002, 08:39:00 PM »

I have a cold cathode kit from PC Mods
http://pcmods.com/details.asp?ProdID=137

I broke the bulb so I tried to order another one. PC Mods doesn't show replacement bulbs on their website and that damned company never answers the phone and usually doesn't respond to e-mail.

I then ordered this from ZX Mods
http://www.zxmods.com/products/productccmodtubes.html

I can't seem to connect the two to make the bulb work. The inverter is still in the case and it's plugged into the power supply with a 4-pin molex. And it's also connected to a toggle switch. The replacement came with a 3 pin plug that won't fit into anything. I have a 3-pin to 4-pin fan adapter but it won't work with that. It seems like it's not meant to fit into it.

I put in the 2 URLs so you can see things much better than I can explain them. Any help appreciated but remember that my knowledge of electricity is less than none.

It should, since the connectors are pretty standard.  But since it doesn't, you could clip the connector from your broken bulb-if you kept it-and connect that to the leads of the new bulb.  If al else fails, you can to Action Electronics and pick up a cheap CCFL.
