    The lights have been ib service for only ten months. I would think that the life expectancy of the components would be longer than that. weve just had the complete units replace under warranty. We'll see what sevice we get out of the new ones.

Typically, the transformer fails. As bulbs become older, the power to run them goes way up, overloading the transformer....

I have 115 v at the bulb receptacle but the bulb doesn't light up...whats the problem its a rab ff150 hps fixture

Does the bulb work in a different fixture? Sometimes the base of the bulb does not make contact with the terminal inside the fixture. unplug the fixture and then see if you can bend the center "not" connector up a little.

What causes outside cooper MD series security light to flicker during night

If this uses a high pressure sodium lamp, it usually means that the lamp is going bad and needs to be replaced. If the lamp is good, check that it is tight in the socket. The other possible cause would be a light shining on the photo eye, if it is photo eye controlled. You may have to rotate the photo eye to face away from the light source.

Lithonia photocell light stays on during the day

1) Buy twist-lock photo control:

2) Spray bit of WD40 on twist-lock blades before installing new photo eye, and then rotate back and forth a bit to make sure there is electrical contact.
Test by placing black tape over photo eye.

What is a sodium vapor lamp?

There are two types of sodium vapor lamps, the low pressure sodium and the high pressure sodium. Both types are very efficient, in fact they are the most efficient bulbs made today. The sodium vapor cost around 80$ the bulb and the ballast and a spare bulb will cost you around 30 dollars.

1997 oldsmobile 88 won't start the security light

Im guessing you tried to bypass the key in the ignition/steering column. This is ok unless the actual problem was in the TDM (theft deterrent module) In this case, the 2 wire bypass does nothing. There is another way to bypass this. Check out this link for tons of info and some DO IT YOURSELF options. Ive done several key bypasses and tons of full bypasses. They both work well, it just depends on what part is failing. I think you need the full bypass to eliminate that TDM.

Sodium security blinks on and off all night , has replace bulb and works for about a year. then the blinking starts back

is there another light in the vacinity or is the light in question itself pointed at the photocell. most likely scenarios are that the light is pointing at its own photocell so when it is off the photosell senses dark and turns it on but then when light comes on tricks photocell into thinking it is daylight,check position of photocell and adjust away from light source if problem persist could be ballast going bad

Security light goes off and on

if it is a gas bulb (mercury vapor, metal halide, or high pressure sodium) the bulb needs to be replaced. they "cycle" when they go bad for a few weeks then completely stop working
