double-ended halogen sockets


there was a double-ended halogen light in my dinning room, however the sockets oxidized and burned away, so I bought worklight from homedepot and took out the ceramic sockets and replaced the bad ones. after that I checked the circuit with voltage tester and the LED light up, however the light bulb won't light up. I tested 150 W and 300 W double-ended halogen bulbs, none of them work. appreciate your any suggestions about what's wrong in my repair!! thanks in advance.

I'm guessing that the bulb is not seating properly in the contacts, but it's hard to be sure. Can you post some pics of the fixture with and without the bulb installed?
