Strip Lighting Issue

Postby theactorscentre » Tue Oct 11, 2011 10:06 am

Hi there,

Just needed some answers to a situation.

In our spaces, we have a number of strip lights that...light the room! However, this morning, 4 of them will not fully illuminate. It seems that the ends of each light comes on "albeit faintly" but not the full thing. What's more bizarre is that other strip lights (connected on the same circuit) do come on!


Many thanks.

Simply Build It

It takes time for admin to make your post viewable. As well as what I said on other post low voltage can cause the tubes to fail (Non HF type) and switching off and back on once the morning surge has passed may cause them to work again.
