Although newer fluorescent fixtures have built-in starters or no starters at all, most older lights have an easy-to-change, visible starter. It is a small, silvery cylinder that plugs into one of the tube holders. 1) Shut off the switch. 2) Remove the tube. 3) Give the starter a quarter-turn in a clockwise direction, and pull it out. 4) Plug in new starter, giving it a quarter turn counterclockwise. 5) Replace tube. 6) Turn the switch on.

Then you might have damaged the ballast in the light fixture. First, you need to carefully check with a meter if there is actually power going to the light. If not, then there is a wiring issue that needs to be fixed.
If there is power getting to the fixture, shut off the power, open the fixture and remove the ballast, then replace with teh same unit. In some cases, it will actually be faster and less expensive to just replace the fixture.

I need to replace the fluorescent panel starter in my flat panel monitor


The problem is not with the Fluorescent Backlight of the Monitor, it's the Capacitor! Replace the Capacitor on the Power Circuit Board of the Monitor. The Capacitor will be slightly bulged! Use the same ratings of the dead Capacitor like it's Volts and Micro Farads. After adding the new Capacitors your Monitor works like new one. Enjoy!

We have fluorescent cove lights in the living room. We think the "starter" is bad, but we can't locate the "starter". Can you help? We have tried switching the working light bulbs...


Very few flourescent lights have "starters" these days. If it does have a starter, it will be a visible cylindrical object usually located at either end of the fixture. More likely it's the ballast that is bad. Turn off the power and remove the cover to the fixture. The ballast will have a lot of wires coming out ot it. Take note as to where all the wires are attached, remove it, and take it to a hardware store or Lowes or Home Depot to get a replacement. Make sure it is an _exact_ replacement. Sometimes it's easier and cheaper just to replace the entire fixture as some of the older ballasts are expensive due to there being replaced by newer technology.

Fluorescent light that keeps flickering


The ballast is a device that utilises and expanding/contracting electromagnetic field to create the high voltage which is needed to run fluorescent lights.

It is normally found behind the front cover or reflector part of the fitting and looks like a small box.

Replacement should normally be done by a person qualified in this field.

When to replace


Inside a fluorescent light, electricity is delivered to a ballast, which sends a spark through the mercury-vapor-filled tube (or bulb), creating light by activating phosphors that coat the inside of the tube. If any of the components are faulty, the light won't work right. Once you pinpoint the problem, most fixes are very easy. Remember to turn off the power first! Old bulbs blink off and on just before they die; repairs are often simply a matter of replacing the tube or bulb. This problem may also be occurring because of poor contact between the pins at the ends of a tube and the tube holders. If the pins are bent, use needle-nose pliers to straighten them. Clean up the pins and socket contacts with fine sandpaper, and brush away residue. Though gray bands at the ends of tube are normal, black bands indicate that the tube needs to be replaced. If only one end is dark, turn the bulb end-for-end. If the tube is new and these fixes don't work, you may have to replace the starter or ballast. Some fixtures ("A-rated") are quieter than others are, but most fluorescent lights have a slight hum. If the sound seems too loud-- or if you can smell electrical burning-- shut off the power. The ballast is probably either the wrong type, improperly installed, or defective. Replace it or call an electrician. Brand new tubes tend to flicker, as do bulbs that are cold. If an old tube still flickers after it has had a chance to warm up (or after you've warmed up the room), rotate it a couple of times in the tube holders. Try cleaning the tube's end pins. If it still doesn't work, replace it. If only the ends of the tube glow, either the starter or the ballast is defective. Replace the starter, then the ballast.
