lighting via ceiling fan
 
my son went to turn on the lights in the room and there was a bright flash as if the light bulbs had burnt out but now the lights will not come on. This is in a ceiling fan in the bedroom. I have tried changing all the bulbs but still nothing. The ceiling fan itself still works but not the lights. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

May have been a loose connection in the light kit that burned through. Kill the power and replace the light kit.
Some fans have a built in light kit that can not be replaced.

Something had a loose connection and burned out. I would replace the light kit, if you cannot find one, replace the fixture.

If it has one of those electronic controllers (for a remote control, etc.), the lighting portion of the controller might have died suddenly.

Before changing the light kit, turn off the power and bend the center tabs of the sockets down a bit. Not likely that several would need this all at once, but you never know.
