Might not be the best place to ask, but....I have a double 48"
flourescent light fixture. Both bulbs stopped working at the same
time. I tried replacements knowing that that likely wasn't going to
work & it didn't. What else can be wrong?
Take the ballast out, take it to Lowe's or Home Depot, and see if they have
a replacement, and check the price. They have most all of the more common
ones. Some are pretty cheap.
As another chap said, you can also check the price of the entire fixture,
but that mgiht be a bit more work.
Some fluorescent fixtures do require a ground, however if the ground is not
present the fixture will still work. It will just take longer to start.
Lack of a ground will not cause the fixture to stop working altogether.
