You can purchase a bulb for the GP on ebay for under $11, which is really a
good price considering what you would have paid from Sharper Image.
Installation is easy, you just pull up on the tab on the bottom of the filter
and pull up. When you are looking at the bulb, turn it 1/4 turn, (2
clicks) and pull it out. That is all there is to it. Item Number: 220444965077
Sharper Image was giving customers a small rebate for the product since it was proven to be ineffective for cleaning the air by Consumer Reports as well data by the EPA.
This has caused a mess for Sharper Image that they went into bankruptcy as a result of it.

I was able to find the power-on switch to be defective. The switch is a momentary normally off switch constructed of two contacts on a printed circuit board. After five years, the surface of the switch contacts became oxidized and no longer made electrical continuity when depressed. I rewired the two wires to a new momentary switch and both my Ionic Air Cleaners are working again.
