T5 Unit won’t start?

There are several things this could be, it all depends on the manufacturer of the lighting unit/controller that you are using but here are a few possible causes:

  • Check the fuse in the power supply. This may have blown if you have had a power surge or got any water in the fitting.
  • Most ballasts run 2 tubes at once therefore you may find one of the bulbs isn’t working and the other will not start because of this. Try changing the bulb.
  • The bulb you are using must be compatible and the same IEC standards as the ballast.
  • *The ballast may have overheated and may have cut off therefore may start again after it has fully cooled down.
    Please refer to the user manual provided with your fitting.
