Yeah. I have seen that as well. It's too bad you don't have another ballast to test it with. Mine worked for about a week, and then it wouldn't work at all. The new ones fire up within seconds, as opposed to minutes like the other one. I guess it could depend on the ballast itself. I would consider replacing the bulb first and see if that is where your problem is. Or, if you have a lfs
that runs MH
, you could see about testing it on one of their ballasts there to see if it is good or not.
