The light in my bathroom is one of those old flourescent strip lights.
It has been working fine for a number of years. Suddenly it stopped working. Naturally I thought it was the starter or a new bulb. I bought a new bulb and replaced. It still didn't work. I know the new bulb is working as I tried it round at my neighbours. Here's the thing -I thought these lights have those starters in them, and this one doesn't??
Hi, are you sure the starter is not inside the fitting somewhere? If not the fitting may be a 'transtart' unit which if so the fitting has reached its 'sell-by' date, as cost of parts more than a new light.
