Hello!

Track Lighting Issue

Half of my fiancé's track lighting is no longer powering on, and I'm not quite sure where to start looking to fix the problem. As you can see in the picture provided, 4 of the 8 lights don't turn on, and they're 2 and 2 diagonal from each other. The bulbs themselves are fine since they power on if placed in a working socket. When I turn off the light switch, the bulbs that aren't working flash momentarily.

Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks so much!

Check for a loose neutral at the junction point. LED's will sometimes flash like that when no good neutral is provided or it is loose. What type switching are you using? Dimmer, pilot lit switch, regular??

Hard to tell from the pic but it looks like the track is 2 pieces with a connector
in the middle. Those connectors are usually cheaply designed and finicky. Can
usually get them working again by inspecting and fiddling with connector.
Once working, step away slowly and don't touch! -)
