outside garage lites no longer work


had the electician here to check, all was good. Put in new bulbs which took awhile to come on but finally did. After shutting lites off a few times during daylight, they simply would not work again. I've checked circut breakers, changed bulbs, etc. Now what do I do?

Could you let us in on what type light it is. A picture would be nice.
Checked the switch?
Checked for loose connections?
Checked to see if there getting power?
Called the guy back and asked him to take another look?
