I've been searching Google for an answer, and several of the topics in
Google pointed to this group. So, first time poster to this group.
I have those CFL's. I recently had one go out, or I should say, half way
out. The bottom half, closest to the base would stay lit.
I unscrewed the light bulb, and the bottom half was still lit! This stayed
lit for almost a full 3 minutes. I thought it was a fluke, but for some
reason, I screwed it back in. Bottom half lights up, and when I take it
out, the bottom half is still lit! I amused myself doing this over and
over, till I got tired of it.
Anyways, I've saved the bulb.
My question is: Do all these bulbs do this? Does anyone know what causes
this in these bulbs?
Maybe, I have a one and only, and can sell it on eBay, and be rich!!!!!!
Ok, I'll wake up now.
