Re: [APD] Fluorescent light fixture

Sounds like wrong bulbs for the ballast or else a bad ballast. When a fluorescent lamp has a starter and the starter goes bad, either it fails open or fails closed and in either case the bulb won't light or be damaged.

Hi. I have a fluorescent light fixture that burned out 3 lamps in a row
as soon as I turned it on. Each lamp was a different brand, so I know it
wasn't a case of defective lamps. Is it the starter or the ballast
causing this? Thanks for your help.
