Hi folks.

As I begin getting my 8e running, after checking the PS for proper voltages and ripple I connected up the front panel. This picture is with all cards removed, just the PS and front panel.


Can anyone tell me if I have burned out bulbs (7 not illuminated in total)? Or is this inconclusive because they may be in some random state?  Or, with all cards out - should I expect all lamps to illuminate? I have read all of the info/threads on bulb this great community has produced, I found a company with a stash of OL-2 which I will probably go with once I determine if I have a bulb problem or not.
