hi guys,
find this forum about lighting and feel so interesting.

recently, my room's fluorescent light suddenly turn off for a while and then after about 10 minutes, it automatically shines again.
Which possible problem of that? Should I replace it?

The reasons maybe as below:
1. the city electricity ( input voltage ) is not stable.
2. the starter of the tube doesn't work well. You can change a new starter or replace the fluorescent tube to a LED tube (remove the starter & ballast)

Hi there,

The issue you're experiencing with your fluorescent light could be caused by a few different factors. One possibility is a loose connection in the electrical circuit, which could intermittently disrupt the power supply to the light fixture. Another potential culprit could be a failing ballast, the component responsible for regulating the flow of electricity to the fluorescent tubes. Over time, ballasts can degrade or malfunction, leading to issues like flickering or intermittent operation.

Before jumping to replace the entire fixture, it's worth troubleshooting the problem further. Check for any loose wires or connections in the fixture and ensure that the bulb is securely seated. If the issue persists, it may be necessary to replace the ballast or the fluorescent tubes themselves.
If you're not comfortable with electrical work, it's always best to consult a qualified electrician to diagnose and fix the problem safely.

Hey there! Have you used your fluorescent light for a long time? Fluorescent lights will become unstable after being used for a long time, and you can try replacing the lamp with a new one to see if the problem is solved. By the way, you can first ask an electrician to help check whether the wiring is loose and the voltage. If the voltage is unstable, it will also cause this problem with your light too.
