Does anyone know where to find fluorescent tubes for jessops lightbox.

I have a JESSOPS LIGHTBOX 8"X10". the instructions say that the recommended tubes are the following:

Philips - TL 8W/950 or Toki F8T5D-EDL-56K

I have looked on amazon and on google, but I cannot find either part to buy.

Dare I suggest you may be throwing good money after bad somewhat...?

There are many LED/ (LCD..? ) panels now, the price has come down - and their light coverage is very even. I picked one from A mazon a few months back, (A3) VERY thin and adjustable brightness levels - probably for less cost than some replacement tubes..(as usual, from China, but what isn’t..? Wink ).

Give it some thought and do a bit of research...?

Kevin, not directed at you.
I am dissapointed that the OP has not responded to our replies.

sorry for not replying earlier.

The thing is that with a led lightbox, if the lights fail, you have to replace the whole lightbox, have you not?

But it appears you are going to have difficulty getting a new tube so it may be better to go for something new.

Many years ago I bought a Light panel from DW Viewpacks who now come under Firstcall Photographic

Perhaps check them them out ?
