Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. To start with take the lamp out and check the lamp switch, if everything appears to be working fine then it is the ballast which is the power supply source for the lamp which has gone bad and should be replaced. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.



Thanks

This model uses a lamp for brightness and average life is 2,000 hours or about 2 years--some lamps before failing will dim down.
