What kind of lightbulb is this?

I have a lightbulb from a nightlight that I want to replace. The casing says that it is a non-replaceable bulb but I'm sure that it can be replaced through soldering.

Here are pictures of the bulb and the board to which it is connected:

Don't know for sure but I would say its either some form of Incandescent or could be plasma, can we get a picture of the casing label and close ups of both sides of the board?

I want to know where I could get a replacement for this bulb.

Hi, Is there an IC underneath the 2 main capacitors or more resistors or perhaps diodes?

Hi,

No that is not your bulb.

Yours is a mini fluorescent bulb.

Thanks for the extra photo. It enabled me to draw the circuit and confirm that it is a fluorescent bulb circuit. Searching online found this which I think is similar to what you have, but did not find a replacement bulb

Good luck finding one. A quick search reveals that most night lights are now using LED lights. You cannot put a LED/Incandescent /halogen etc bulb into your circuit as it was designed to drive a fluorescent tube. Put anything else in there and you will most probably destroy it!

Have you tested the switch?

Looking again at all your pictures it occurred to me that all the components look in good condition, even the bulb. As it is a fluorescent type bulb, one of their characteristics is that when they start to fail and eventually do fail the ends usually are dark. Yours does not show this.

So my suggestion is try using a DMM (Digital Multimeter -Ohmmeter function) to prove the continuity of the switch. DO NOT do this on a 'live' circuit. With the unit dismantled as it is, it is simply a matter of placing the test leads of the meter across the switch terminals and operating the switch to prove whether it works or not. If you do not have a meter hopefully you know someone who has and they can do it for you. It takes less than a minute and replacing the switch will be far easier than trying to locate a bulb which has been no doubt superseded by the advances in technology.
