: The fluorescent shop light in my garage (2 bulbs) stopped turning on
: via the pull-chain. For a time, the bulbs would light if I twisted
: them a bit, but then that stopped too. I removed one of the starters,
: thinking it might need replacing, and discovered that as I removed it
: the bulb lit. Now I'm able to light both bulbs by briefly inserting
: and then removing the starter for each bulb. The bulbs light as the
: starter is being removed. What gives? And will new starters restore
: normal function, or is something else wrong with this lamp?

Just replace the starter, they're only about 50 cents or 2 for 89 cents at
any hardware store. 99% chance, that will get them going again.
