I've just moved in to a house with this fitting in my hall. I've tried fitting a 4 pin square base bulb into it, but it doesn't work. I can't find a rectangular base bulb anywhere? Any ideas? Photo of the fitting attached.

I've just typed ' rectangular light bulb ' into google and various web sites came up that sells such bulbs, have a look and you should find what you are looking for.

There them awful eco bulbs its either a PLS or PLL 4 pin


edit. I'm sure its a PLS 4pin aka 2G7 as its got the 2 locating tabs, But there is also a 2 pin variant

if its your own place change the bulb holder

Don't know the exact fitting but it's a PLS of some sort IIRC.

Easiest and simplest answer would be to fit a standard bayonet bulbholder. example here http://www.screwfix.com/p/british-gener ... hite/48002 only 2 wires and then you can fit any easily available bulb (incandescent /Cfl/ led)

Lecky off first though.
