First of all, I am a COMPLETE dunce when it comes to electronics so I may be asking a ridiculously stupid question and if so, I apologise
I've been in a rented flat for nearly six months, which has three double plug points in the living room. The lamp is plugged into one of these plug points however one lamp stopped working; fine, I'll just change the lightbulb. But we tried a variety of lightbulbs, none of which worked. So, as the lamp was about three years old, we figured it was the lamp. Buy a brand new lamp from IKEA about two months ago and last week, the lightbulb went. Changed the lightbulb but it didn't work. Tried another lightbulb, it didn't work.
Surely a brand new lamp wouldn't break down this quickly? It's making me think that perhaps there could be something wrong with the plug point as the lamp isn't even three months old. Of course, could be a coincidence but I really don't know.
Is there anything else I could be checking before the electricians get called in?
Thanks so much,
