Hitachi VM-CP10ZA Light Lamp DC 9V 10W Answered

Has any one tried to connect these lights directly to a 9V DC source?

I do agree
with both of you. Yet, this is a VHS (oh yes an old one!!!) camera light, that
mounts on the camera, it has three prongs, a +ve and two others that one is –ve
but I am not sure of the other one, and a circuit inside, so it is controlled
by the camera. I did try to connect it to a 9V source, and it did not light up.
Yes the light does work on the camera, so just for fun I've tried to tinker with it
without the gigantic camera, but did not succeed. I heard about this website that I might be able to
get a solution. Here I am adding pictures of the circuit.

Don't want to be too sarcastic, but isn't it quite obvious that 9V light should be connected to a 9V source?

It has a 9V Bulb so any 9V DC source will do.
