Yes. But would appreciate a step by step as a beginner to help test and fault find.

A 2-wire voltage tester and check for 230v at fittings that don't work

Check bulbs fitted tight and working

You can then use a voltstick and check on the L-E if possible without tripping RCDs to see what's present if anything

Continuity on L-E is another one if you're trained and only in the right circumstances

So you can possibly establish 230v present , L present and even N present just by testing

But those would require a little experience and can't always be done safely , but it's what's possible to check in the right situation

To be honest, I've got very little experience in testing and electrics more broadly so given this is a job at height and with live electricity I'm beginning to think that it might be safer to call a qualified electrician in to look at it.

I just wanted to make sure I hadn't missed anything basic I should be able to do myself.
