Shame that I missed it. The reason why I like them is because they’re very common in my area.

In the wild, I have supposedly encountered a baseball field that appears to have some 1500W M48 probe start metal halide fixtures running 1000W H36 mercury vapor lamps in some of the fixtures.

Check out this installation here:

I used to buy as many as I could get my hands on, but after a while I ran out of space. Now I only grab things that are truly rare, or if I have a fixture that uses that type of bulb and don't have many replacements on hand.

That's possible explanation. But just a microscopic one as (looking at the switch) it's the kind sold with the desk lamp fitting the cable well. Maybe dust as the switch most probably isn't IP68.
The lamp probably reached end of its short life anyway. I had two of these and the previous one lasted about the same tens of hours but its end was less mysterious - it just turned off while lit.
New LED (a different brand) in the same desk lamp seems to work as expected - no buzz and no 'phantom' light with the light switch off.

What keeps me from going nuts and just collecting all the lights I can is the fact that the ReStores have almost no lamps (and I live very far away from them), and I have other interests that I want to spend my money on.

I also don't just buy every lamp that I see. I buy the ones that I think are cool/rare or that I have a use for.

Wasn't just some insect or so getting fried in the switch?
Causing first the arcing, possibly destroying it. And maybe the erratic spikey power via that arcing also destroyed the lamp...

Don't know. It was in a desk lamp with an approx. 2m (6ft.) long cable (2x 0.5?) with the common cable switch in a distance about 0.5m from the LED.

Maybe it was the same effect like you can 'feel' electricity while brushing your finger on some electric appliances. Even my smartphone does that with some chargers - one has to slowly move their fingers on the metallic parts of the cover to feel that.

Capacitive coupling in the switch?

Thanks for the info! I’m surprised about the SRX being discontinued that late as I assumed it was discontinued sometime in the 90’s.
