Trying to install a new ceiling light in an old house
Hi, first time here.
I'm trying to install a new ceiling light (from IKEA) in the room of an old house (built in ~ the '30s).
The wires coming out of the ceiling are all black -- no color coding -- but I matched the grounding wire on the new light to the wire in the ceiling that the grounding wire in the old light was attached to, and matched the other wires accordingly.
You guessed it, when I turn the power back on, the new light won't work.
Any suggestions or insight would be very welcome. Thank you.
