Dear sir

first do not confuse by the colour of ballast wire, now see black and white wire who is coming from the ballast and find out after that you have to remove it from the joint . and other new ballast replace here and it's wire connect here with that point where you has remove wire black and white wire first from here. and try to fix fluorescent light here and after that try to switch on electric supply for testing. i hope after that it will work.

thank you
hope answer the question

I want t replace a mb2x40/120 rs ballast with a 120 277v electronic ballast how do i wire it


Rule #1: TURN OFF THE POWER AT THE BREAKER PANEL.
A fluorescent light ballast is a transformer that outputs a higher voltage than the input (120 volts). The electrocution hazard is very real.
Practically all ballasts have a drawing printed on the label. As a master electrician I still need the drawing to install them properly. Electronic ballasts should have a black and white wire for input voltage. The output to the lamps will be some combination of: red, yellow, blue.
The new ballast must also be matched to the type of lamp. Old fluorescent lamps were T12 (refers to the diameter). New lamps are T8 and produce more lumens with lower amperage.

How do you disconnect ballast wires from Lithonia Lighting Fluorescent fixture?


The feeder or supply power wires (black and white) are the primary of the ballast or transformer, if we are talking about house wiring. The secondary side of the ballast (usually red, blue and yellow wires) supplies from 600 to 800 volts to the lamps. This makes this job very dangerous. Are you sure you want to do this job? Buy a repacement fluorescent fixture, the cost of the ballast will be about the same as the cost of the fixture.

Fixture not working after bulb change


"CFLs" Compact Fluorescent Bulbs (with built in ballast) must be labeled as dimmable to be used on a dimmer circuit.

Traditional fluorescent fixtures must have a dimmable ballast installed inside and can be used with standard fluorescent lamps.

Fluorescent lamps must be sized to match the ballast. CFL's are matched at the factory, but others are not. Older fluorescent lamp fixtures have a ballast inside. A type rating is to operate (2) 48 inch / 40 watt lamps. Newer fluorescent lamps are rated for 32 watts, and these will not work - or will have a greatly reduced life.

If you installed CFL's, the first thing I would do is install regular incandescent lamps and see if it works as expected. If not, something else is wrong - otherwise - make sure you've got the right lamps in the fixture.

Testing photo cell


These devices typically require a minute or two to change state from ON to OFF when the the threshold of light and darkness is reached. Place black electrical tape over the sensor and allow a minute for it to turn the light on. Make sure that no light shines into the sensor or that the sensor can not see light in the night time.

Lastly, double check instructions and wiring. White should be connected to BOTH the neutral incoming power AND the light fixture's white wire(s). Most times, black is 120V source, and red is the switched 120V out to the fixture.

If it isn't working, make sure the lamps are good. This photocell is suitable for use with compact fluorescent lamps, fluorescent lamps and other fixtures that use ballasts and transformers as long as they do not require more than 840 VA.

Good luck!

How do i connect a ballast


Hello. Not sure what ballast you are looking for but I am guessing a Fluorescent light replacement ballast. Normally in a 2 tune balleast there are a BLACK and WHITE, These are Hot and Common. 2 Yellows go to the one end of the tubes. The 2 Blue wires go to the end of one of the tubes and the 2 red wires go the end of the other tube
Black to Black, White to White. 2 yellow to Tube 1 and 2 yellow to Tube 2. 2 Blue to Tube 1 and 2 Red to Tube 2.
Hope this helps..

The first thiing I suggest is checking the installation instructions (either included with the ballast or on-line) of the ballast you just purchased. Many fluorescent ballasts require that the lamps be wired in series - which I believe is what you had before. One lamp connects between the red & the yellow, the other connects between the yellow & the blue. Other fluorescent ballasts require that the lamps be wired in parallel - which may be what you have now (both lamps connect between the red & the blue). The installation instruction sheets should designate the appropriate wiring configuration.

That being said, just double-check one thing: Make sure the new ballast is rated for 2-lamps. Ballasts rated for 1-lamp will only include the red & the blue (no yellow). So I know you sad you already checked with the destributor, but double-check that one point.

  • 1 Turn off the circuit breaker that's delivering the power to the light fixture.
  • 2 Test the feed wires with a touch-type voltage tester before you touch them. Press the button on the tester and touch the tip of it to each wire to make sure the circuit is dead. If the tester beeps or lights up then the circuit is still live. Try additional breakers until you find the correct one.
  • 3 Strip about 3/4 inch of insulation from the ends of each wire coming from the ballast if they aren't already prepped for wiring. Use the smallest setting on the wire stripper to prevent snapping the wires when you strip them.
  • 4 Take the single red wire from the ballast and insert its tip into one of the two pressure-slots on top of one of the sockets on the same side of the fixture that the red wire is facing.
  • 5 Take a 6-inch length of similar red wire and strip 3/4 inch of insulation at each end, then insert one end into the second slot on the socket that already has the red ballast wire attached and insert the other end into the other socket on that side.
  • 6 Insert the tip of one of the blue wires into the slot on one of the sockets on the other side of the fixture.
  • 7 Insert the tip of the second blue wire into the slot on the other socket on that side of the fixture.
  • 8 Connect the white wire from the feed circuit to the white wire on the ballast and connect the black wire from the feed circuit to the black wire on the ballast. Make sure the wire connectors are on tight and wrap electrical tape around the connections.
  • 9 Put the fixture back together and install the fluorescent tubes as per the manufacturer's instructions. Turn the circuit breaker back on.
