The "lamp" I'm referring to is actually an illuminated pushbutton that says "125V MAX AC/DC, 3W MAX" on the full voltage unit. The light lights under the 12 V, albeit somewhat dimly. I know transistors can amplify so is it possible to somehow amplify the 12V to make the lamp brighter?

Yeah, I just looked up the bulb online and it states it a 28 V bulb. And I kinda figured transistors didn't have magical voltage-increasing powers, but thanks for confirming it. :)

Thanks for all the help everyone!
