I need some advice on an Icecap ballast. I picked up two of them with the 110g tank. One is a 430 and has a large scorched spot on the circuit board. Perceptive fellow that I am, I quickly deduced that this was not a good thing
and will send it back to Icecap for repair. The other is a 660. It seems in good condition. It was wired up to four 48" tubes. When I plug it in, and I have checked all the wiring, one of the bulbs will start to glow just for a second and then nothing. The ballast makes a bzzzt sound as you plug it in. I know they all make a noise on startup and wasn't too worried about that. Is there an easy way to test this thing? Could I wire it up to a couple of new NO bulbs to see if it will light them? I'm not sure the bulbs I have are any good and don't want to buy new VHO
tubes just to check the ballast.
