Flourescent Problem

I have a flourescent light fixture which uses 2 - 2 foot bulbs. Both bulbs went out days apart. I replaced both bulbs but only one lights up. I switched the two bulbs to make sure it wasn't the bulbs.

Also, the one that lights, it takes about 10 seconds before it lights. This did not happen before.

Any ideas on what my problem is? Could it be the balast <sp> if one works and the other doesn't?

Thanks in advance.

I would replace the ballast. This should correct your problem. Now you might want to check prices for a whole new replacement compared to the cost of the replacement of your ballast only. Might be cheaper to pitch the old fixture and replace with a new one.

Good Luck
