    I have 2 Photogenic Porta-Master AK20 kits.
    they look like this
    Photogenic Porta Master AK20-PS new light bulb AK30-SC - eBay (item 400035951552 end time Oct-04-09 19:03:06 PDT)

    One of them the flash/strobe doesn't work but the modeling lamp works. Where can I find a replacement bulb for the flash?
    Any thoughts?
    I dont want to buy a whole new unit.

    Steve :)

    Thanks, turns out it's not the flash tube. I swapped tubes from the firing one and the other tube didnt work in this unit, so its not the bulb. When I press the test button I hear the "pop" noise like it fires, but it doesnt. Any ideas? the MD lite works fine.
