Currently in the process of changing lamps, all 32w GX24p-3.

Every one has had to have the ballast changed.

New lamps in, not working.

New ballast in working.

Ive phoned the ballast supplier and they report there are no lamp incompatibility issues.

The customer is pushing back on cost, as theve only ever had to change the lamps, why are they all suddenly broken?

The fittings are about five years old and used 12 hours a day, 7 days a week.

They are fitted above a suspended ceiling in a heated area so i cant see any environmental issues, no damp.

Anyone heard of poor quality lamps causing ballasts to fail?

Any idea on how to go about testing an electronic ballast?

Typically, on electronic ballast fittings,i work on the 'if its not the lamp its the ballast' method and replace but the number out here is becomming a worry.

Any ideas much appreciated.
