SOURCE: no display from projector

try resetting the lamp timer. if that doesn't work: listen for a high pitched whir when you power it on. if you don't hear it, the colorwheel needs replacing. if you do hear it and it doesn't light, the ballast is bad and needs replacing.

340v should be on power pwb plug PL on the 1 and
5 (GND) pins for the ballast. and the ballast plug CN should also have the 340V with pin 1 of that plug being GND nd pin 3 should have the 340V If the PL plug on the power board is low the power pwb has a problem most likely the doubler circuit. If CN plug voltage is high say 360V the ballast is suspect.

I have a T12 fluorescent light fixture and replaced the bulbs and ballast. I have double checked all the wiring connections. I get the bulbs to light when I move the bulbs, but only for a second.


Your description sounds like the connectors for the tubes. Also RECHECK wiring. Different on newer ballasts. See below...

Turn off fixture, unplug, or deactivate fuse...

Pull out bulbs and the tin fixture cover/reflector.
Extract the bulb connector. Go to hardware and buy 4 more, and just replace them. The connections fail where the wire connects and the rigours of bulb replacements damage this piece. TONS easier to get new pieces.

ALSO!!!! many new (fancy schmancy) ballasts WIRE UP completely differently from the old ballast. Follow the wiring diagram on the NEW ballast. This detail trips up many.

I have a building full of 427G lights with 12-15 that won't work, but appear to have good bulbs. What is the issue?


Florecent or the yellow HPS bulbs? If HPS you have a bad bulb, or bad ballast. May be similar issues if florecent.

We have Lithonia 2 bulb fixtures in a recessed ceiling. We currently have 2 (25) watt bulbs in them. What wattage can I upgrade to ??


The ballast inside the fixture is rated to operate 2 25w bulbs. You can't put higher wattage bulbs in this fixture, unless you change the ballast. Sorry.

Fluorescent light only one bulb out of two burning very dim


I like to start by swapping the position of the bulbs. If the one that didn't light, now does, it probably indicates a bad ballast (that long thin black "boxy thing" with wires coming out of it - it may be under a removable metal cover). Next replace the unlit bulb with a new one. If that doesn't light, try swapping the new light to the other position. If you still can't get two bulbs to light, replace both lamps with new ones. A good indication of a bad bulb is one or both blackened ends. The bulbs having two pins on each end have a small filament inside. This blackening is the metal of the filament "boiling off" and depositing on the glass. Eventually the filament gets thin and breaks so it doesn't provide the heat necessary to "prime"" the mercury inside the bulb that conducts electricity and excites the phosphor coating inside the bulb that emits light.If none of this works, most probably the ballast has "gone bad" and it, or the whole fixture, must be replaced, normally by an electrician. This can be done by the home "handyperson." You can cut the wires, remove the old ballast and replace it with a new one, splicing them to those of the same color from the new ballast using small "wire nuts." The one black and one white are the 120 volt power input wires. There are normally a pair of reds, a pair of blues, and a pair of yellows. Any wires of the same color are interchangeable. The blues and reds will go respectively to the bulb's sockets on one end of the fixture; the two yellows go to the opposite fixture end and are connected, in parallel electrically, to the other lamp sockets. If this makes sense, you may attempt to change your own ballast. If not, hire an electrician. Match the specifications for voltage, wattage, and number of bulbs, from your old ballast to the replacement - there are several different important electrical values to match even if the ballast looks physically the same size. Last, always turn off the electricity, and verify that it is safely off using a test light or meter before working on the fixture. Even though the black wire is normally energized and the white has zero volts measured with respect to ground, sometimes their function is reversed by an amateur where the wall switch may disconnect the black wire and make the fixture go off (as it should) yet the white wire remains dangerously energized, which is why you always test both of the wires with the test light or meter with respect to ground before touching any of them. Again, if this is not PERFECTLY clear, hire an electrician. Don't take chances, Electricity KILLS!

Hello There,
If you plan to have LED lights in your household the easyest thing is to buy the ones, they are made for line voltage (120 V). You have choices for bulb like shape or tubes. The tubes are available for direct replacement (using the existing ballast) ot the line voltage ones (the fixture's wiring should be modified and the ballast needs to be removed). The power saving is constant, by the time passing by you are saving.
Hopefully, this will help you. If you have more specific question, please let me know.

My 4ft fluorescent fixture has whiye and black wires that have been connected, hot and nuetral but it also has a red (brown) wire ? where does this go.


They make dimmable ballasts.
The Lutron dimming ballast shows an orange wire, not a brown >> but other manufacturers might call for different color.
I am guessing here, but ballast should work with Black Hot and White Neutral

I want you to answer back and say if the ballast works with just white and black, Thank you.

Kill power to light and emergency single light does not turn on also with power on push test knob and emergency bulb not come on


Hello Ramon, Check the power back (battery cell) as without a functioning battery pack, the emerbency light won't function.

Typically the batery packs will need to be replaced periodically every 4-5 years, depending on the istallation location and ambient temperatures.

When you kill the power to the emergency lighting circuit the PSQ is switched to operate automatically on battery power only. The same thing occurs when you press the test button; it disconnects the lighting from the electric power that keeps the battery charged and ready for service. You might also want to check the bulbs with a test meter (remove the bulbs from the fixture and test with the Ohm setting) While rare that these bulbs burn out, since they aren't usually illuminated often, only during a power disruption/outage, etc.

Here's a link to the Lithonia site with the spec sheets for the PSQ series of emergency lighting products, for your use and reference.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
