Help! My light died

I came down this morning to find that my light wasn't on. I messed with the switches, outlets, and timer ... nothing.

I have a 48" Current USA Satellite PC (2x65w) and it is on a timer (on at 9:30am and off at 9:30pm).

It was on last nite, but today it will not turn on. I even tried swapping out the bulbs, so its not the bulbs. it doesn't buzz or anything ... what should I do?

I really don't want to lose all my plants as I won't be able to get to a store til Sunday (scratch that, football is on), Monday at the earliest.

Does anyone have any clue as to what happened or if there is a fuse or something simple that I can do to replace it?

I would start with calling or emailing the manufacturer. I have that fixture and I can't recall anykind of fuse/reset feature. Your plants will be fine until Monday.

From where the sun now stands, I will fight no more forever.

I don't know about the fuse (although there might be one in there), but you can try contacting Current USA (ph 760-727-7011) and talking to them. Most likely there is a loose wire if it worked last night, and doesn't work today. HTH
