UV Light / Balast trouble

Thu Dec 02, 2004 10:02 pm

I need some help with my UV light. Is there a way to test the balast for a UV lamp. I thought the lamp had burned out but the new one doesn't work either. After being plugged in for a while the balast is warm, not hot, but the lamp won't glow. (Yes, the outlet has voltage. No circuit tripped.)
The balast has 110/120 vac in, a red & blue to one end of the lamp. And a white & yellow to the other end of the lamp. (sorry, pretty colors are the only specs I have)
Thanks in advance.

I have been lurking in the back ground on this one. What pray tell is an UV light?
