You will have to replace it. You should make sure the copier is unplugged because there is line voltage on the lamp. Remove the glass and move the scanner to the right a bit. You remove the black lamp shield. One or two screws, I can't remember. At the rear of the lamp you should see a spring that needs to be removed. This keeps the lamp in place. Get the correct lamp, and reverse the procedure. Test to make sure the lamp comes on before replacing the shiled and the glass. Some times the from spring lead doesn't make good contact and you have to try again. Be sure to uplugg the copier if you have to work with the lamp. Sometime the foil that powers the lamp or the connections go bad. Good Luck

My honda accord 2001 is having brake light issues. 3 of the 4 "lower" brake lights will not work and the dash board light is on. The trunk lid lights are working fine. When I put the bulbs from...

Some bulbs are dual function and others are single function. You may be installing the wrong type bulbs in the sockets. Look in the sockets and see if there are two contacts at the base, or a single contact. You can look at the base of the bulbs and see if they have two solder connectors or a single on. Sounds like you need to recheck all your brake sockets to be sure.

2 of 3 brake light bulbs dont light up when brake pressed only when lights are on do all 3 bulbs light up, only on the right side, left bulbs turn on, I changed fuses and bulbs no luck

Chek the light harness ground connection, for each "faulty" bulb. l suspect the brake lights are detecting the gound from the running lights, which is the only time they all function.

Left brake light is out, but it is not the bulb, as it works for the other functions, just not as a brake.

Brake light bulbs have 2 elements in them. One bright one for the brakes, and a dimmer one for the night time lights. It's possible for the brake light element to burn out prior to the other element due to using the brakes more often than the night time lights.

Stop light

Rear combination light assembly contains three bulbs. Two bulbs are single-filament and are used in hazard/turn signal and backup light circuits. Third bulb is a dual filament bulb; one filament functions as brake light and other as tail light. A plastic bulb holder mounts three lamps and associated wiring. Bulb holder can be removed from inside vehicle for bulb replacement
