Question about Sea Gull Lighting Sea Gull Energy Saving White Fluorescent Ceiling Fan
I have a bathroom light that uses a Low Energy 2D (4 pin) bulb. The light stopped working and obviously needed replacing (blackened area at two ends of the flourescent tube).
I replaced the bulb, but the tube would not light - just keep flickering.
I replaced the starter. Again the tube keeps flickering.
I have tried two further starters - still no sucess.
Sometimes when the room is warm, the bulb does work better.
I have heard of something called a "ballast". Is is required, if so, how would I fit one,
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.
