t12 light fixture not working


I have a 48 inch, T12 light fixture with two bulbs. The bulbs are flickering and very low light is coming from them. I replaced the ballast but the problem still exists. Any ideas?

have you considered replacing the lamps? what is happening could be bad lamps, a bad ballast or a poor connection in the lamp holders.


you also want to make sure you have the correct ballast and it is connected properly. Is the new ballast identical to the old one?
