There is either a bad connection or no juice getting it the fixture or you have a bad ballast [transformer]..

Generally you can't run ECO or ALTO tubes (less mercury) in fixtures meant for regular Rapid Start/ Preheat tubes. Other than that Old tubes near end of life sometimes do that.

Florescent light tubes wont come out


If they are slotted fixtures and pins on the ends of the tubes, turn off the power and push the fixture slots off the tube. The heat generated may have warped the ends towards the tube. Use a flat screwdriver -carefully and put it between the end and the fixture slot. Make sure that the tube is in the vertical position with the pins and it should come out

Dear Sirs, I have a BENQ PE8700 projector. I know it's outdated, but it still suits me fine. I've already changed the lamp, and this new one is 1000 hours old. I am recently having a problem:...


If the bulb on this projector is filament less then it may be a bad ballast. If it is that kind of a bulb the ballast is like the starter on a florescent bulb that excites the internal gases for light to be emitted. If it conks out, the bulb stops emitting light even though the cooling fan stays on.

Leviton 3-way wide view motion activated light control, flickers, then blinks then shuts off after installation. Installed in a hallway with florescent lighting.


Some switches are not designed to work with the florescent bulbs. It's a matter of them trying to push a starter for the light. Check the package and see if it's compatible.

The screen will be red in the background when I start it up and go black before I will even see my users page, I tried a new inverter but still have the same problem


Sounds like a bad backlight tube to me: if the screen lights up and shows only a reddish tint, then its tube ain't lighting up fully, and then it sounded like the tube just quit shortly afterwards.

FWIW, a backlight tube is kinda like .. a very long, skinny florescent tube that runs the length of your screen (usually the bottom length). In fact, it is a florescent tube and behaves like one when it fails, too.

If you're thinking of replacing the tube, I'd say: "skip it" - as it requires a lot of experience and expertise to perform this task. Finding a good, used screen (on eBay) would be a much easier proposition.

How can I take out the side florescent bulbs encased in plastic?


Hi,

Usually the plastic tube has two end caps that hold the plastic tube onto the lamp. These end caps allow the connection pins to go through a slot in the end of the cap.
If the lighting fitting is the turn type then turn the complete tube and over tube by the end caps and remove the tube/over tube. If it is in a lighting fitting where you just push the connection back and pull the pins out of the fitting.
The end caps will have a ridge that the plastic tube fitts into at each end.
I have seen some overtubes have screw on end caps.

Wurlitzer 1015 CD 50 disk - florescent bulbs change


You have to rotate the tube 90 degrees until you hear a click, then it pulls straight out of the sockets at the top and bottom (towards you). In order to grip the tube Wurlitzer put a black plastic cap on the end of the tubes with a bit sticking out for you to get hold of. On models where the colour cylinder is flexable you can actually squeeze it in the middle and grab the tube that way.

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.
