Track Lighting

I have 2 track lights in my kitchen, and since my skylight leaked, the one in front of that track no longer works.

Not knowing much about track lighting, I bought a new power supply, and installed it. It's still not working?

Do I ditch them and buy a new set??

Track Lighting

Are they movable track lights ?
Or stationary ones ?
If they are movable, its possable the contacts
between the light fitting and the track are dirty,
so not allowing the power to get thru.
If so slide the light backwards and forwards in the track
a few times, and see if it improves.
Some proper contact cleaner and lube will help.
Dont use wd40 or crc.
