I have cable track lighting - about 4+ years old, and it's been
working great. All of a sudden, today it wouldn't turn on anymore.
Does anyone know why this would happen and what the fix is? Some
details are below, in case they may impact the answer, but there
haven't been any changes between yesterday and today, so I don't know
why it would all of a sudden crap out on me.
5 light heads that connect to two cables that run parallel and then go
into the power source thing (sorry, I'm not that technical). My ex-
boyfriend converted it from hardwire to a wall plug when we first got
it. I had that wall plug plugged into a remote control system so I
could easily turn the lights on and off without having to plug and
unplug them from the wall each time. (yes, I've tried the lights
without the remote control system - still not functioning, and I
replaced the batteries in the remote control switch but to no avail)
two of the halogen light bulbs that came with the system burned out
this year, and i replaced them with non-ikea brand bulbs that seemed
to work just fine. i put those in a couple weeks ago with no problems
and they'd been working beautifully until today. I've tested the plug
on other appliances and those work just fine, so it's not the wall,
it's the lights. How can I fix this problem?
