Can't wait to try it! I really didn't want to lose this color hue bulb, so this is a great way to extend the life of these bulbs

You’re exactly the kind of person who is in the situation for which I posted this guide :) :) :)

fingers crossed for you !!

Vincent Monteil -

Is there any other model that fits better into the Philips Hue? I broke one and want to fix it but I see on your pictures that the Ikea bulb doesn’t fit perfectly.

maybe we can find another model that fits into the Hue base…

in any case I want to thank you for the guide! Good idea to repair Hue bulbs

Hi !

sorry for missing your comment !

i have no idea to be honest. This is a easy hack that worked fine for me since my bulbs are in an enclosure :)

hope you found something that worked for you !

Vincent Monteil -

Great stuff! Has anyone tried unscrewing the three screws seen on the second picture under step 1? I figure that would make it easier to get all of the broken glass out of the way and start with a clean slate before gluing the new glass on there. I just don’t know if there are any cables under there that would break or something of that nature, and don’t really want to find out if I risk breaking the entire thing.

Maybe someone with a completely dead bulb could try it and snap some pictures? Fingers crossed!
