Flourescent Fixture Mystery

I have an 8 foot flourescent fixture that works fine with the cover off but will not light with the cover on. No wires are being pinched. Seems like the cover is causing some kind of short or grounding problem - how can I remedy this?

Normally just the opposite wil happen with the cover off........

Could it be that when you put the cover on it spreads the sockets apart just enough so they don't make contact with the lamp?

I thought about that possibility - but I've tried pushing the lampholders apart with the cover off - and the light does not go out.
