Double Fluorescent Lights Not Working

Hi All

I had one of the bulbs in my kitchen start to flicker, was driving me nuts so I removed it. The light then refused to work at all.

Today I have replaced both starters and both globes but still I get nothing happening.

Is it possible I have installed them wrong? What else can likely be wrong? Any help would be much appreciated, been 6 weeks with no kitchen lights now.

What were the "globes" you replaced or did you intend to say "bulbs"? If you have a fixture that takes starters it's quite old. The ballast is the next thing I would change but it may be cheaper to simply buy a new fixture.

Are you sure you used the right bulbs and starters? How long are the bulbs?
