Anybody here know anything about these things? I bought two new bulbs 48" 32W x 1.5" and they fit perfectly, but only one of them barely burns an the other does not, just like the ones I thought simply burned out. What else could be wrong?
It's easy to roll the pins on one end so that it does not make a connection. Just redo until you feel the pin kinda pop in. If its not the bulbs then probably the ballast, it gives a high voltage jolt then acts as a limiter.
