8O I would wait it out.. Do you have a light at all?? 8O
what would the LFS
owner have done if you had corals? (symbiotic algae coarls of course)
did he not have any units for sale?
ie return for the same product? I suppose not...
WOW.. definatly stop dealing with him ASAP
He could have at least offered a resonable solution to the problem..
fixing the ballast would not be in my relm of knolege.. (I'm not a electrical engenering technition)
and I wouldnt try fixing the unit personaly untill the retailer refused to take it back (in my case thats usually after at least 5 years of good use of a product so warrtees would be expired with electrionics)
and most people just replace equipment that I repair (filters, pumps, impellers right about eveything but the motor in the housing) I was young and lets say had a lack of funds when I got into the hobby..
so.. long story short.. I sometimes say things that I probibly should keep to myself.. such as cracking open a fixture that could be returned (without thinking about its age becase most all of my stuff is too old to return) now that I think about it, all of my equipment is old
in other words.. I appoligize for my remarks earlier.. my curriousity about the Jebo units should involve me purchasing one and dismantiling it myself to see how messed up they really are if I really want to know whats wrong with them.. (If the MH
units were cheaper, yea Im that cheap..lol, I would have actually done this by now most likely)
I really hope you can get this resolved swifty..
