My grow light was purchased used now it doesn't work

My grow light was purchased used a couple of weeks ago.I purchased a new 250 watt bulb so that is new. However, I finally go to use the grow light for the first time and it stops working less than 10 hrs later. The on switch on the side still lights up so it is getting electricity but the bulb does not light up anymore. Is there anyway to test what exactly went wrong with it and repair it on my own?

Suggestion for Headlight Replacement


h4 head lights are normally 55/65 watts
head light brilliance is controlled by the condition of the reflector , the head light glass and head light alignment /aim
with the fitment of relays you can get up to 65 /85 watt bulbs but if the reflector is plastic then it will melt with bigger bulbs

if lights are haligen lights, you may be adding to the problem, never touch them after you have removed the lamps, do not use your hands to install them, oils from hands cause them to burn out quicker, use a cloth to install them do not touch lights

My low voltage landscape lights are constantly going on and off once the timer activates them initially. I suspect there is a short somewhere, but is there a good way to locate the short besides pulling up...


Your transformer must have output greater of the total wattage required of the entire system. Example: Putting lights that draw a total of 250 watts with only a 180 watt transformer will result some lights not working, or dimming and flickering, or intermittent power outtages. I learned this from experience. Always go with a transformer that has more wattage available than what is needed. Also, using the incorrect gauge of wire can cause the same issue. Wire creates resistance. Distance the power must travel through the wire creates more resistance at the end of your run than the beginning.

Picture cycles off and on


I replaced a burned out xl-2000u bulb with an after-market Philips bulb on my Sony KF60XBR800. After a fews weeks, I started experiencing intermittent black-outs with the "stand by" red light appearing. After a couple weeks it became intolerable. I then purchased an OEM Sony lamp and the problem has been gone for months. I read somewhere that the Sony circuitry monitors either resistance or watts and shuts the thing down for board protection. It was said that it is so sensitive it can can use only the Sony bulb. I'm a believer. If the bulb is going bad, i wouldn't doubt the protection circuit can kick in.

Landscape ligthing Transformer


Yes ican. They are made to be split into two 300 watt circuits. So it's ideal to place it at a location in the middle of you lights . Basically to go each direction from the transformer. Now you need to find out what wattage bulbs are in each light.(different fixtures can have different watt bulbs.) Lets say you have 8 lights going one direction and 8 going the other way and each light has a 20 watt bulb. That adds up to 160 watts on each side. So you are well below the 300 watt rating per side. By the way I wouldn't go anymore than 250 watts on a 300 watt circuit. Next you look on the bottom of the transformer and you will see the screws where you hook up the wire. You will need to strip the end of the wires about a half inch. Hook one set under the A & B for one side then do the same for the otherside. Plug in the transformer and set the timer to whatever tme of day and night you prefer. Hope this helps. If you have more questions just ask. Thaks and remember to rate me.

400 watt HPS


The ballast may not be the problem. The problem may be the ignitor (starter). If the fixture humms, then the ballast is most likely working. Ballasts (transformers) do not go bad very often.

Growing lights Types


There are three major types of lighting systems available right now: incandescent, fluorescent, and high intensity discharge. Incandescent lights are horribly inefficient (especially the screw-in "grow bulb" type) and really not an acceptable option for plant growth. Although they are inexpensive to purchase, their cost of operation makes them the costliest source of light.

Hid light output?


MH lamps are available in 175,200, 400 and 1000 watt sizes. HPS lamps come in 50, 75, 150, 400 and 1000 watt sizes. San Agro comes in 430w only, but it works with a 400w HPS ballast. Each lamp requires its own ballast, which comes with the fixtures that are designed to use these lamps, and are also available separately.

Could it be all three of the bulbs? no as you say that sound is ok that means your power supply &high voltage section is ok. please check chroma ic luminance section or system control section stand by ckt ihanks
