Fluorescent Tubes

Have tried to replace a 15W Sylvania tube with two other manufacturers' products , Narma and Crompton and they will only flicker. A Sylvania tube from another unit works fine so nothing wrong with unit. . Have replaced starter and still no difference. Any ideas?

Fluorescent Tubes

Double check the tubes to be sure they are correct. If they do not work and a known good tube from another fixture works, its the tubes themselves. I have seen many newly purchased tubes that are bad. Try a new tube.
