Something happened and the light source is no longer visible to me, how to make it visible again? Light falls, but the source is not visible.

If you make an object and apply the emission shader - everything is visible. And standard lighting objects are not visible (spot, plane, etc)

I already tried creating a new file

    $\begingroup$ Hello :). Point/Spot/Area/Sun Lamps cannot be made visible in renders. The only way to make a light source visible in a render is to use a Mesh Light with an emission shader. $\endgroup$ Nov 27 '19 at 14:58
