So model of bulb I have is YLDP02YL. I have 6 of them. I’ve been using them for 2.5 years and recently noticed a drop of liquid on the white plastic part of a bulb.
This liquid is oily when you touch it.
I’d like to know what’s the reason for this? Is this liquid safe? What should I do? Currently this liquid have been found on 3 out of total six bulbs.
Drop appeared again on the same bulb. This time I did photos.
Same here with at least 1 of my 15 bulbs.
Is it from the light bulb itself? Do you use a humidifier or anything? This is interesting, never seen anything like this before!
It’s definitively from the bulb and kind of oily.
Yes it is from the bulb. And yes it’s also oily here. It also appeared second time, but still no third time.
I wrote to support and they suspected it’s water vapor condensate, but
drops of water on bulbs would appear again with the same climate conditions (which I tried, they did not appear again)
air conditioner actually dries air
given drops of liquid on bulbs are oily and don’t completely dry when they drop on a surface. Water is not oily, water condensate is water.
when condensate appeared on one bulb it should also had appeared on all other 5 bulbs in the same room
I suspect two things
- plastic degradation (maybe with specific climate conditions required)
- electrolytic capacitors inside the bulb
But for the 2. bulb looks tightly closed, so only if plastic can let electrolyte through,which I don’t know possible or not.
Over here I’m having standard mid european weather conditions, nothing special a bulb should suggest from…
So then it’s electrolyte or plastic degradation without special conditions or something else.
