Ceiling Fan Lights Won't Turn On

The fan is working fine on my ceiling fan. But the lights will not come on... when I pull the chain I get a click, but nothing, not even a flicker. Since the chain is getting a good solid click which I can hear when I pull it, I'm assuming that the fan light switch is okay.

I've attached a link to photos of my ceiling fan and it's wiring. A couple things I need to explain: the black box in photo number two, you can read the print on it if you enlarge the picture. Also, in picture number two there are blue and white white wires. They attach to the black and white wires on the piece that the lights are on.

Thanks, in advance if you can help me fix this. If you reply, please keep in mind that I know next to nothing about this kind of stuff, so please explain as if you were speaking to a 4-year-old. I take direction very well.

Welcome to the forums.

You aren't really showing us anything in the pictures.
If there were a wiring problem it would be in the canopy up at the ceiling.

Is the fan currently down off the ceiling ?
Is there just one wall switch or no switch controlling the fan/light ?
