I am building a box to grow vegetable in I am heating with 60watt light bulb the box is made of plywood. I would like to how I can put light bulb to the plywood without starting a fire?

You should NOT use combustible material around electric light bulbs or other heaters the way that you're describing. Use only non-combustible materials such as steel, stone, etc. Gypsum board (aka "sheetrock") is a "fire rated" combustible - based on its thickness. After the amount of time on it is exposed exposed to fire, it burns (as determined by the fire rating).

I replaced my bulb in my sony tv it worked for about 2 hours then did shut off and green and red light flashing. I thought the bulb was bad so sent it back and got a new bulb through another company and...

There is a switch where the lamp plugs in which may not be making proper contact. It may just need bent out slightly. The lamp must be removed to see the switch contact. It is on the bottom to the right of where the two lamp plug ins are. The switch is a very tiny metal contact. It may be hard to see so use a flash light and be careful when reaching in. Be careful not to scratch the mirrors. I used a dull toothpick to pull the switch out. It did not take much, just a hair to make it work. Put the lamp back it, put the door on, and plug it in. If that still doesn't work maybe try just pulling the switch out a little more but not too much or it may snap off.

Replaced the bulb but it did not come on.

Assure that the bulb you used is working (use another lamp to test) If it is a 3-way try the other settings. Check the plug to assure it is electrically sound! Check the switch (whether rotary switch or "pull chain" there should be a distinctive "click." If this all does not solve the problem...try this: unplug the lamp!!!! remove the shade and bulb, Look in the socket, Look closely at the bottom of the socket. You will see either... a small piece of metal in the center of the bottom of the socket or two pieces of metal, one in the center and one slightly to the side of the socket. If it appears that the metal in the center is flat against the bottom. take a paper clip use it to reach in the socket (of course the lamp is unplugged!!!) and slightly lift up to raise the height of this contact. Trial N error may help. Note: I repair and restore lamps and have done at least 1,000; this is the #1 reason that bulbs do not light. (other than bad bulbs) When I discover this is the problem... I don't have the nerve to charge the customer. Good Luck!

How many volts should be coming from the light soccet connected to a ballast for a 400watt bulb I am reading 270v but the bulb will not light

hi, a word of warning , the ignition voltage of a metal halide( grow light ) is many thousands of volts .
the first thing to try is a replacement bulb , next is replace the ignitor ( usually a small block with 3 terminals ).
a metal halide lamp can often look to be perfect when infact its internally blown .
hope this helps

I have 2006 Grand Prix How do I change head lamp?

Caution Halogen bulbs contain gas under pressure. Handling a bulb improperly could cause it to shatter into flying glass fragments. To help avoid personal injury:
Turn off the lamp switch and allow the bulb to cool before changing the bulb.
Leave the lamp switch OFF until the bulb change is complete. Always wear eye protection when changing a halogen bulb. Handle the bulb only by its base. Avoid touching the glass. Keep dirt and moisture off the bulb. Properly dispose of the used bulb. Keep halogen bulbs out of the reach of children.
Raise the hood.
Remove the headlamp assembly bolts from the upper fascia support.
Slide the headlamp assembly outward enough to release the headlamp bracket tabs from the slots in the upper fascia support.
Position the headlamp assembly away from the vehicle body to access the electrical connector.
Disconnect the electrical connector from the headlamp assembly.
Remove the headlamp assembly from the vehicle.
Disconnect the electrical connector from the headlamp bulb/socket.
Remove the headlamp bulb/socket retainer ring from the headlamp, by turning counterclockwise.
Remove the headlamp bulb/socket from the headlamp assembly.

The tall center light is located behind the upper hatch inside panel. There are two panels need to remove. One panel is on the right, the other on the left. To remove the panels you have to use flat screw driver to pry out the panel in several locations. (These panels are secured by several small metal clips.) Be careful to collect all these clips and replace them on the back of the panel. You will need these clips to replace the panel later on. After remove the panels, you will be able to locate the screws on the tall center stop light assembly. Remove those screws and cover. After replacing light bulb. Assemble everything in reverse order. Remember, the metal clips have to set on the back of the two panels not the car body.
