Bulb out on meter of CM1090

Post by StevenJH » Wed Apr 28, 2004 4:10 pm


After many years of great service, the bulb on one of the meters of my CM1090 has gone out. Audio is still great, but it's annoying not having the light on one side.

Anyone here know how to fix this? Where can I get the part?

Thanks, Steve

CM-1090 bulbs

Call 1-425-335-4748 and ask for Rita at Carver Service. She should be able to sell you the bulbs. These will have to be soldered in and old bulbs de-soldered out. I have done this repair to both of my TFM-35xs and it was relatively easy. I'm not sure about the CM-1090. I've got two of them and luckily all bulbs work. I am pretty sure it says "bulbs soldered in place" on the back of the unit. If you are uncomfortable performing this repair yourself any good audio repair shop should be able to do it for you at a fairly reasonable price. Hope this helps.
