    I don't think the ballast will stop working because you didn't change your bulb. Sounds like a bad ballast, is there a warranty from the manufacturer?

    It's been partially explained in this very thread how not changing a bulb can lead to a burned out ballast.

    Greg, JBJ manufacture warranty is ridiculous because it's only 6 month with in purchase date. I assume it was at least a year, but i read online, they only accept 6 month. Pretty stupid huh?

    i try to make cry and sad repeatedly, but for some reason, the crying face didn't work. Why is that, forum moderate?

    If you paid with your credit card you might check with your credit card if they have any warranty bonuses. Some cards will automatically double the manufacture's warranty.

    Ballasts can go bad due to overheating if the bulb is old or bad.

    You ever see a street light fire warm up then go out eventually leading to the light not firing? The ballast is overheating trying to keep the bulb lit when it shouldn't be, with e-ballasts that is not a problem, mag ballasts OTOH don't have brains, which, by the way, makes them impervious to zombies. That's a different story.

    BTW, my info comes from folks in "horticulture" that run a ton of lights simultaneously.

    They say six month only... I read it online and talk to them. It's okay, it gives me an excuse to upgrade to a 150watt MH.
    I see, thanks for explaining.
