help, wall light problems


Hiya, I recently decorated and to do so had to take wall lights off. Since putting them back, one of them isnt working. Ive checked wiring, bulbs and even swapped wall fittings over to see if it was faulty, but its not. There is power getting to the one that wont work, so why wont it work??? Please help cos its driving me crackers!!!

How much power are you reading at the light that does not work?

Tell us how you checked for power. Problem could be a loose connection at one of the working fixtures or switch.

Are you in the UK? If so, did you use a test meter to check for 240V, hot (live) to neutral at the fixture point? How do you know you have power at the fixture (fitting)? Sounds like a loose/bad connection somewhere.
