Why sometime remotes don't work in the evenings

Make sure there is no Fluorescent lamp facing the front fascia of your electronic equipment.Some fluorescent lamps are known to jam Infrared signals emitted from the remote. Hence this problem only occurs in the evening when these lights are on.Simple On/Off test will reveal the culprit.Start by switching off all the lights in the room and then switch the lights on one by one till the remote stops working.

Why do lamps (incandescent and compact fluorescent)seem to burn out prematurely?


if lamps frequently change there brightness , you most likely have a loose wire connection in your power supply someplace , contact a licensed electrician they have access to special equipment that uses infrared light to find loose connections faster than just looking/tighting every place

Fixture not working after bulb change


"CFLs" Compact Fluorescent Bulbs (with built in ballast) must be labeled as dimmable to be used on a dimmer circuit.

Traditional fluorescent fixtures must have a dimmable ballast installed inside and can be used with standard fluorescent lamps.

Fluorescent lamps must be sized to match the ballast. CFL's are matched at the factory, but others are not. Older fluorescent lamp fixtures have a ballast inside. A type rating is to operate (2) 48 inch / 40 watt lamps. Newer fluorescent lamps are rated for 32 watts, and these will not work - or will have a greatly reduced life.

If you installed CFL's, the first thing I would do is install regular incandescent lamps and see if it works as expected. If not, something else is wrong - otherwise - make sure you've got the right lamps in the fixture.
