OK, let's think logically. You did not change anything except the
fluorescent tubes, right? Did not change switches, didn't do anything
with the wiring, right? The problem is therefore something to do with
the tubes. This could be either the new tubes are faulty (try in a
working fixture) or the ballast/starter in the fixture isn't able to
start the bulb.
If the fluorescent bulb is the kind with the two prongs on each end
it's probably a matter of not being inserted into the holders
correctly. Remove bulb and retry.
