Question about Garden

Open Question

Hi, My name is Jim I have a ballast that no longer works. Model HPS 1000. The green switch light shines when the switch is turned on, but the ballast does not even hum. I got it second hand, so there's no warranty. My first urge was to find tools and a meter to take it apart to see if I could find the problem. What do you think is the problem?

SOURCE: how to turn on

Make sure you plug in power adapter. Since its second hand, the battery might not be functioning and maintaining a charge. If this is not the problem, then you could check the RAM. See if it has 2 modules, so that you could try each individually. If only one, then you might need to borrow an exact type to try to see if that is the problem.

I am working on one right now with a similiar problem. The power supply is bad in the one I am working on, and sadly, the part is not made anymore. I hope you have better luck than I am finding the bad component in yours. Sorry for the negitive answer.

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.

A ballast for a 1000 240 volt fixture will lose a small amount of output over time , but should nt be too noticeable . I suggest you take one of the dimmer bulbs and install it into the fixture that has the brightest bulb in it now . If the new bulb is now the brightest of all , then you know your other ballasts have lost some intensity . I have also seen on some bulbs depending on the gas inside the glass( ex. HPS or Metal Halide) which gives off the different color , will take a while on initial start up , to burn at full intensity . It is also possible that you were given used bulbs which would explain the 20 percent loss in intensity . Good luck

One of my two hps bulbs is brighter than the other one the bulbs and one of the ballast are new the other ballast is a year old


Hi .. it could be the ballast .. an easy thing to do to troubleshoot this would be to swap the lamps. If the problem follows the lamp. then that is the problem. If the pronblem stays with the fixture, then I would replace the ballast in that fixture.

I turn tv on...green light comes on but i get no picture or audio....then light indicator blinks red


Hello!
Lamp or ballast(if lamp has been replaced) is bad.
Explanation: green comes on: system works, waiting for light to shine into light engine: no light is coming out of lamp, system shuts down, then you see red! how to determine: pull the lamp out of the unit's compartment. Inspect lamp: bloated stem? shuttered? reflector is not shiny? Chuck it!
Lamp looks good or just been replaced: try ballast. Close lamp compartment without lamp itself. Make sure, door is shut, as well. Turn unit on and listen close to lamp compartment: good ballast will make a buzzing noise, then stop. You've got "red'! No buzzing: ballast quit. Needs major repair! Lamp must be good, for sure, to get to the last part of diagnostics. Conclusion: more, than 2000 hours of usage: replace lamp first!
Good luck,
Alex.

Hello...need help.. replaced 600mh bulb then


Have you tried the switch yet? The plastic switches inside some ballast boxes don't do well with the heat produced by the ballast. You can try to simply bypass the switch and hard wire the ballast to the plug to test whether or not that might be your issue. If you need a new switch, just call Sunlight Supply directly http://www.sunlightsupply.com/hort/contact.aspx they should be able to send you a replacement switch.

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.
