fluorescent light problem
I am having a problem with a fluorescent fixture in my kitchen. The bulbs have not been replaced in 4 years and they recently started flickering. I decided to change all of the bulbs. I purchased four new bulbs and put them in the fixture. The bulbs flickered but after a time stopped and all seemed well. I turned the switch off and then back on. However, this time the light did not come on at all. There was no flicker or anything. I have checked the seeding for all the pins, but cannot get the light to work at all now. I put the original bulbs back in to see if the problem was the bulbs, but the old bulbs will not work in the fixture now either. I am at a loss as to what to do next. I will add that one end of the one of the brackets does not seem to hold the pins tightly.
