Change the ballast.
How to fix a flouescent fixture.
1. Change tubes.
2. If #1 doesn't work change ballast.

Do not PM with questions that can be asked in a forum. I will not respond.

yea its def the ballast. Yo would only get 120v on the line side. On the load side the voltage would be much higher.
