Exclamation Coralife Mini Aqualight help

My light started flickering, then turned completely off! I've replaced the bulbs, but nothing. I assume it might be the ballast? I have very little knowledge of the mechanics of lighting. anyone know how I can repair it? This will be the last of these fixtures I buy, I've already had one before this that died...

I had the same problem on my 29 g. The older lights have the little canister starter thingy ( can't remember what it's called). If u have one on ur light, unplug it and take that little thing out. It just rotates in. Take it to petsmart, petco , or Lowes and u can get a replacement for cheap. If that doesn't fix it, then u have a ballast problem or a short. Or the light isn't plugged in good. Hope its just a cheap fix.
