i picked up a new tank the other day and it came with this 150 watt k2 viper metal halide. the previous owner said she wasn't sure what was wrong with it but that it started smoking so she unplugged it and let it sit. i pulled it apart today and it had a melted wire which i think may be a ground wire not sure. here are a couple pics.
is this fixable? if so what should i do to fix it? i have some experience with car wiring but have never messed with a light. i think i could replace the wire pretty easily but not sure if that would fix the problem. what do you guys think?
thanks for any help.
