Faulty tube lighting

  • People come and go in this office, it's not used all the time. What should I look for, for the cause of this bulb only lasting a day?
    was it the right size starter for the tube? a 22W starter won't work a 58W tube, it might work a few times and then fail...

    I bought two sizes of tube from the local Handymans store, he said the starter was the same one for both tubes.
    What fails, the tube or starter?


  • normally in that case, the starter. but mismatching tubes/starters/ballasts could cause other things to fail
